For this week's Yarn Along, I'm working on a new project, a project I had in mind when I visited Purl Soho little more than a week ago. I picked out this Manos del Uruguay Maxima in Artic Shadow. The turtleneck portion is finished, and I'm ready to start the body. Unfortunately, I've been hit with a bout of sickness this week, which has made for very little knitting, and even less reading, but I'm starting to feel a bit better so hopefully I can make some progress on my sweater this weekend.
Finn and I have been reading through Moominland Midwinter since I brought it back from NYC for him. The other kids have listened to bits and pieces of it. All 3 boys are a bit Moomin obsessed and particularly enjoy the Moomin comic books.
I did manage, before I got sick, to finish Elizabeth's socks for her birthday. I misjudged her tiny feet just a bit and made the foot part a bit short for her. I'll probably rip out the toes on both socks and add an extra 1/2-3/4 of an inch to give her a bit more room. Overall she likes them though, especially the colors.
