Cold, cloudy, and snow flurries in the wind here today. I'm home from work, changed into warm clothes, had a big mug of hot chocolate, and now I'm ready to show what I've been knitting and reading for the past seven days.
Athos sock #2 is in the home stretch. Last week I vowed to focus on just this sock for seven days, resisting the urge to cast on anything new. That paid off big time: the heel is finished, and I have 4 pattern repeats on the foot left to do (56 rows) before it is time to do the toe. I feel like this sock has taken forever, but the end is near now. Hopefully next week I will be gloating over a completed sock.
I am still reading The Meaning of Names. I haven't spend much time reading in the past week, but when I have a minute or two, I grab for this book. I'm enjoying it (so far) as much as I thought I would, and it isn't too complicated of a storyline to follow despite the multiple interruptions in my reading time.
