This week on the needles is the same pair of socks. At least this is the second sock and it really is almost done! These socks have been really fun to knit. They are the first pair of toe up socks I've knit and the first time I use the magic loop technique. The next pair I am really going to try to knit two at a time. Need to do a little research first.
As for books, I just finished Made From Scratch. It was a very fast and enjoyable read. I was hoping to learn a little more, but this book really is for the beginner. Not a problem, the writer style is down home comfy. I thoroughly enjoyed her tales of success and disaster on her way to learning how to homestead. the reference section in the back looks quite good as well.
We are starting The Willoughbys as a read aloud. And the Tomten books are for Bekah!
Don't forget to hop on over to Small Things and join in this week's Yarn Along. Or at least be inspired to knit and read ~ it's so much fun!
