Ahem, still working on Elizabeth's birthday socks for the Yarn Along this week. Only another 3 days until her birthday, so I'm getting close on time, but since I'm nearly ready to begin the toe of the 2nd sock, I'm not too worried.
For my reading this week, I just started Weapons of Mass Instruction by John Taylor Gatto. Eileen, of Little Acorn Learning, Valarie, of Jump Into A Book, and I were talking over the weekend about reading this book, and quickly our plan turned into a Virtual Book Club on Facebook. We are still welcoming new members before our first book discussion on 2/4 so please join us if you are so inclined. The book club button on the sidebar of my blog will remain if anyone would like to join for a later book.
I took a brief break from sock knitting over the weekend to make this cute rainbow cowl from Rhythm of Family. I have to say that even though I added a few stitches and used the right sized needles and yarn, it still turned out relatively small on Elizabeth (and she has the smallest head in the family!)
The cowl also rolls really badly making it impossible to see the rainbow, but I suppose it adds a bit of neck warmth. It was a quick knit from leftover yarn so it was hard to be too disappointed.
What are you working on right now?
