I'm joining in with Ginny for this week's Yarn Along.
I finished DS1's jumbo vanilla latte socks last Wednesday evening. And, as expected, forgot to take a picture of them. *sigh* Do I know myself, or what?
On Thursday I cast on for Mom's Hermoine's Everyday Socks. Sock #1 is coming along well; I have completed 13 of the 18 pattern repeats in the leg. With a trip to get DD2 from college coming up (I can hardly believe her first year of college is over!) later this week, I will have lots of car knitting time, so kind of expect to have the first sock completed before next week's Yarn Along.
Meanwhile, I have a ton of things to get done before DH and I head north to retrieve DD2 and her dorm room of stuff. Number one being take this flamingo fabric Mom's sock is sitting on, and turn it into a pair of summer weight jammies for K3, who is having a birthday on Saturday. Guess now you know what I'll be doing this afternoon. . . ;0)
In the past week, I started, and finished Beverly Lewis's latest book The Atonement. Like all her books, I enjoyed it, and had a hard time putting it down. The ending was a little abrupt and I predicted the outcome. Not to fault the author for that, I think it's just that after nearly two decades of reading her novels I've come to know her writing style and typical plot lines.
