I've been absent from the Yarn Along for the last few weeks, but that doesn't mean I've neglected my knitting (or reading, for that matter). I'm still working on Finn's Christmas sweater, although not as much as I should be. It really takes concentration, so I have to find time to work on it when I won't be interrupted and when I can spend more than 15 minutes working. (Ha!) The design is really starting to show up and I love the way it looks. Maybe now that the kiddos are back in school, I can get more accomplished on the sweater.
I've started reading The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane to the kids at bedtime. I read it to them years ago when Finn was a baby, but Philip doesn't remember it. And, of course, Finn didn't hear it. The older 2 don't seem to mind the repeat, and Edward Tulane is really my favorite DiCamillo book so I'm happy to get the chance to read it aloud again.
For some mindless knitting, I started another pair of socks for Finn. (He should be set for wool socks this winter!) The yarn is leftover from a pair of socks I made for Paul 2 Christmases ago, which I apparently neither blogged nor put on Ravelry. I'm not sure how that happened!
His other socks that I started a few weeks ago are complete. They are exactly the same as his Christmas socks, since I had the extra yarn and he loved them so much.
I'm sure he'll get plenty of use out of his extra pair of "cozy socks", as he calls them.
