~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Linking with Ginny
I finished my second sock late yesterday evening.
I had the thirteen year old [who is thankfully
starting to feel better] try them on and he
agrees they are a good fit, but a little
hot. I knew wool socks in July wouldn't
pair well together, but I'm hopeful in
January the socks will feel perfect.
I have been browsing Ravelry and think
I am going to cast on this for my next project.
I have some grey alpaca in my stash that
will work nicely and it will save me a trip
to the yarn store.
I am almost done with reading
The Dirty Life and while I am
enjoying it, I do wish the author
had written a little more of the
joy's of farming and having animals
instead of so much 'sad' stuff.
I do not wear 'rose colored glasses'
against the realities of life on
the farm, but I do know there
are also a lot of joys to be
to be had too. I felt like the
author could have included
a lot more of the happy times;
maybe I just haven't reached that
part yet or my experiences have
been drastically different.
What are you reading and knitting this week?
