Can I let you in on a little secret? I have never knit socks with sock yarn. I always use worsted and larger needles - of course I haven't knit socks for anyone but my kids either, and the thicker socks seem to work best for them.
Well, I cast on a new project. Socks, with the tiniest strand of yarn I could possibly find...The stitches are tiny!
It took me a good 45 minutes to get the 5 rows you see in the picture completed. 45 minutes. I am a slow knitter, but that is extremely slow! I hope that as time goes on it moves a little faster though, or else I will end up with one sock completed and the other never to see the needles.
These are not adult socks either, these are for Emma. The pattern is called "Socks for Little Witches." I am not sure where I found the pattern, but the picture of the finished project looks adorable, and something I think Emma will love...if I finish them! I might need to pick a back-up project.
My reading is the same as last week. I haven't had as much time to read the past couple of weeks, besides reading to the kids for school. I am almost finished with the John C. Maxwell book, and we are still reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I am also re-reading Pride and Prejudice for the 100th time. I read it to Lucy before her naps, seems to do the trick of putting her right to sleep!
What are you working on this week?
