This week's Yarn Along finds me with less pressure to complete but still working on socks. ;) Elizabeth picked out yarn for a pair of knee socks and a sweater for her birthday at the end of the month. (Actually, she doesn't know what I'm making, I just asked her which colorway she preferred.)
She chose the Roller Skate rainbow pattern in Knit Picks' Chroma Worsted which I'm making a simple roll neck raglan sweater for her. She also picked the Moonlit colorway in Felici sock yarn, also by Knit Picks, for her knee socks.
The stripes don't exactly match, but the colors are close enough that I think she'll be happy with them.
As for my reading, I received Folks, this ain't normal by Joel Salatin for Christmas and I've been thoroughly enjoying his thoughts on everything from farming to raising children to corporate agriculture. In fact, I've found myself reading a few pages at a time and mulling his words for a few hours before continuing to another section. I'm anxiously awaiting learning more from this book!
