For this week's Yarn Along, I'm back to working on Elizabeth's cape. I hope I can concentrate on it a little more after my break to knit Finn's chain maille and his socks. I just started reading Chew On This to the older kids after Elizabeth read parts of it in school and wanted to read the rest and let her brothers read it too. We haven't gotten too far into it yet, but I really appreciate how the book begins at the beginning and gives the history of fast food, how it started, why it became popular and how it grew to become such a large industry.
I finished Finn's socks over the weekend so I wanted to share those too. He's always so excited to get a new pair of socks, or anything knitted really. I used the Easy Toddler Socks pattern again and put notes on ravelry for enlarging them a bit. The yarn is Risata, from KnitPicks, which a cotton-merino blend that is a perfect weight for chilly spring/fall evenings and mornings. Risata, unfortunately, isn't carried by KnitPicks anymore. I actually bought it for $2/skein on clearance and the socks took almost exactly one skein so I have another to make a second pair of socks later.
The color is Clementine which is so very Finn in all of it's orangy glory.
Silly sock model!
