The past week has been busy with family and gathering, the best sort of busy. I’ve been trying to crank out some knitting on this sock in the few quiet moments in between. This is my first time knitting in the round + knitting socks, I really am enjoying it now that I’ve started to see it take shape. I’m skeptical that I’ll finish 4 sets of these before Christmas at this rate! 😦 But maybe I’ll get faster as I get the hang of it? I’m just about ready to start on the heel flap on this one. Lots to learn!
I’m still reading The Things of Earth of course, it will take me a bit to work through that one. I’ve also started a few Advent books, this one is edited by Nancy Guthrie, an author I love, and is a compilation of some Christmas reflections from some of the best pastors and theologians such as George Whitfield, Martin Luther, Charles Spurgeon, John Piper, Tim Keller, Jonathon Edwards, Augustine, Schaeffer, etc. I’m enjoying it so far. I’m also reading Ann Voskamp’s The Greatest Gift and the children + I have been eager to dive back into the child’s Advent book Unwrapping the Greatest Gift. We worked through it last year and all loved it so much. I think it will be a treasured family tradition for us!
