socks and reading

See that pretty wool yarn behind the socks I was knitting last week?  Yes, I am just casting on for those same socks, but in that other yarn.  The green socks are for my Emma, the other yarn will be fore my little man, Jack.  I am also hoping to knit another hat, and maybe some baby leggings with that yarn...I think I might have just enough :-)  The child will be outfitted in stylish yummy wool all winter!

I just picked up Possum Living from the library today.  I am just starting it, and am hoping that I enjoy it more than the past several books I have read.  I feel like I am devouring books as of late, but haven't really enjoyed them as much as I typically do.  I'm thinking I need some good fiction in my life right now.  I think I might look for some tonight :-)

What are you knitting and reading today?  I am joining up again with Ginny from Small Things for her yarn along.  Hope you are all staying warm!


  1. Your socks look great...I knit my first pair last winter, they're not perfect at all....but I was so proud of myself!
    That looks like a great book...I also recommend "Radical Homemakers" by Shannon Hayes.

  2. Possum living sounds interesting. I'll be curious to see if your really gain some good info!

  3. I am so impressed! I am curious to hear about Possum Living. I had been thinking about getting it.

  4. Let us know if you learn how to live like a possum! Yes, I say it is time to get immersed in a little bit of fiction.

  5. That yarn is real boy coloured. Your little man is going to look cool and feel so warm all wrapped in that yarny goodness.


  6. Thanks for the youtube link to buttonhole success! I'm going to try to fix my mess, so it will come in handy! I'd love to know what you think of Possum Living...I've wanted to read it for a while now :-)
