When I showed Emma she said “Is this for me?! I love it!” And then proceeded to wear the one sock around for the rest of the night, and was mad when I asked her for it back. In my book, that is success!
I am happy to report that I have finished my one knitting project for the month! It isn’t the scarf that I started at the beginning of the month, it is the neck warmer/cowl that I started last week.
I am also still knitting my scarf, and I am still enjoying the knitting and the pattern. I forgot how long it takes to knit a scarf, but it is fun to sit and knit a few rows here and there, and I am definitely making progress.
My other crafting goal for the month is to make one other craft, whether it is something that I knit or sew or color, but I haven’t started a second project yet…and we obviously only have a few days left in January (how did that happen?!), so I will have to think about that through this week and see if I can complete my crafting goal for this month or not!
As far as reading goes, last week I mentioned that I was going to start Girl Meets God and Spark Joy. However, I didn’t start either of those! Instead I finished reading Barefoot Church by Brandon Hatmaker, and then started reading The Choice by Nicholas Sparks since the movie is coming out soon. I have a feeling I will be crying at the end, just like all the other Nicholas Sparks books!
What are you working on this week? Do you like to see movies after reading a book or before?

I finally was able to finish the band of my lovely hat! I have worked a few rounds of the moss stitch pattern, and I really like it. This is a very quick knit, and if I had an hour to sit down and finish it I could.
Perhaps today will be the day! We woke up with the lovely national (world wide?!) Time Warner Cable internet outage. It has been off and on all morning, and I am just crossing my fingers I can finish this post before it goes out again.
As far as my reading goes, I received a new book in the mail last week to review. Dark Hope by Monica McGurk. It is a young adult book and first in a series, so I am looking forward to digging into this and seeing how it develops. Look for a review soon!
What are you knitting and reading this week? And happy back to school day to all the kids going back today!
Linking up with Ginny, Tami, and Nicole
