I am very pleased with the knitting progress I made in the past seven days. A quickie trip up north to see Mother-in-law on Sunday (hours of car knitting, yay!) really helped to get the first sock of my pair of Tendril socks finished.
I started sock #2 on Monday and as you can see, have gotten the ribbed cuff done, and am about a dozen rows into the leg.
In addition to knitting, I've done some reading. I actually started this book, Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah, a few weeks ago. It was the 'portable' book I took to the woods with me during hunting season to read during slow times. Portable in that it isn't a strangely sized book, and being paperback it has no dust jacket to either crinkle or reflect the sun and possibly scare off deer; it's a rather thick nearly 500 pages. Now that regular firearm deer season is over, I retrieved the book from my hunting bag and finished it off.
If you want a gripping story that will make you cry buckets (thankfully near the end, when I was reading in the house; otherwise I surely would have scared off the deer), this is the one. I so enjoyed this book, it sucked me in and I really related to the storyline; I will definitely be picking up more novels by this author. (And setting up a day to get together with my own BFF-since-8th-grade whom I haven't seen nearly often enough in the decades that have passed since high school ended and we both got busy with the demands of adult/married/parenthood life).
