Wednesday again, which means books and knitting. Those deadlines have been breathing down my neck! I managed to finish the baby socks in time for theirs. I’ve made some progress on the adult socks, but I’m not certain they’ll be done by the end of the month. It’ll depend on how much I can get done tonight and tomorrow, but dear me – so much 2×2 ribbing……. I JUST finished this cute pair of wool shorties (capris? who knows – I don’t have a newborn handy to measure). I still need to wash them and then put them in the mail, but so far there hasn’t been a “hey! we have a baby!” update, so I’m not terribly late there yet.
This picture isn’t the best, since I just took it. I’m inside the house at night, so there isn’t any natural light. Also, I’m not camera/picture editing savvy, so I haven’t bothered to try to correct anything. The colors are pretty accurate, though.
I’m currently listening to Slummy Mummy. It gets pretty mixed reviews, but I’m finding it mildly humorous and certain elements of her story ring true for me (and others might if I had to get kids out the door to school daily – *shudder*). The car book is the second “Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place” book which I’m enjoying as much as the kids. We’ve already downloaded the third so there won’t be any lag in listening. I still have Her Fearful Symmetry, but it’s been living in the library bin. I need to dig it back out. Instead, I’ve been rereading the shortstories in Nightmares and Dreamscapes by Stephen King.
I need to get back to the socks, but in the mean time: if you have a tween boy, what does he like to read?
