I’ve been working on Brandon’s socks now, almost done with the foot of sock one. Since they weren’t done by Christmas, maybe I’ll have them done by his birthday in a couple of weeks? 😉 Since he never reads my blog, I can safely tell you I will probably knit him a chunky warm hat, too. He hasn’t asked me to make him anything yet, but he asks every time I start something new “and who is that for?” I think he’s quietly waiting for his turn. I finished up the hat I was knitting last week (made up the pattern). Here is Phoebe modeling it, and then myself (picture snapped by Phoebe)! It’s a gift for a loved one.
I’m reading a few books right now, but this one came in the mail yesterday and I just started it. I am only one chapter in so I can’t tell you what I think just yet. I find I rarely read fiction these days and I’m in need of some good stories to get lost in. I’m hoping this is one of them! It’s about a girl from an Amish family in 1842 who has two marriage proposals, one offering her the home + life she craves near her family + faith, the other offering her an adventure West. I’m hoping she goes with option #2 for some reason. I’m drawn to everything prairie-life, alaska-related + homestead-y right now. Do tell if you know of other books in that genre!
Anyway.. I can hardly focus because this is what I’m seeing outside of my window from my desk. FINALLY!
Joining up with Ginny + all the other lovely knitters and readers at her blog today! Hop over there for great reading + knitting suggestions.
