So I FINISHED my very first sock! I’m super proud and stoked. I have learned a lot of new things while working on this one, and I’m pretty hooked on knitting. I started the matching sock for it last night. I am pretty eager and ancy to get these done before Christmas and I’m feeling like at this rate I will most certainly not get everyone’s finished! 😦 Phoebe has seen me working on these, she sort of thinks they are for her but I haven’t said anything directly. Even this morning, Noah saw me taking these pictures and he was excited to see the finished sock. He asked, “Is that Phoebe’s?” And I said yes and he was so enthusiastic. I have been sort of thinking they won’t be that excited about these, but both seem super interested and excited that mommy is maybe making them something.
Also, I’m still reading a couple of Advent books, and working through The Things of Earth but this book has been a favorite of mine with to read with the kids this year. A library find, but I will probably have to buy it. It is set in the mountains where we live, such a sweet story of a humble family and hope, and the little girl is named “Ruthie” just like our little Ruthie (Philippa Ruth). I have added a list of some of our other favorite + treasured Christmas children’s books in my little book store (on the slide-out sidebar under “Recommended Reads”).
Joining up with Ginny Sheller’s weekly yarn along today.
