It is still warm, but I knew that I needed to get back on my knitting game. Of course, at this point, after taking a couple weeks off, I had no clue what to knit. I looked at some new patterns, but nothing was sparking my interest.
I started looking at the yarn that I have, hoping something would spark my interest, and buried below a bunch of yarn was a half finished sock, and I decided that was what I was going to work with!
Knitting socks is fun for me, but I rarely get the second one finished - does anyone else have this problem? It isn't that I don't like the pattern, or that I don't like knitting socks, it is that I get the first one done, start the second, and then I put it down to work on something else. I will complete these socks though, they will be perfect for Emma for the fall!
As far as reading goes, I am kind of all over the place. We are doing a lot of reading for school (and will be for the next 18 years I would imagine), I am also still slowly reading Pride and Prejudice to Lucy - I did this with Emma when she was a baby and also with Jack, strange I know.
My newest book is called Dark Rising by Monica McGurk. It is the second book in her Archangel Prophecies. I had the opportunity to review the first book Dark Hope last fall, and I really enjoyed it. So I was really excited to start the second book. I should have the full review up at the end of the week, but really really good! I love young adult fiction, easy to read stories that are compelling - fun!
What are you knitting and reading this week?
