For this week's Yarn Along, I'm continuing to work on the socks that I've been working on for the last few weeks. I'm on the home stretch though...the last quarter of the second sock. This project has gone a bit slower than I'd like, with the start of school and a quilt project stealing my knitting time. The yarn is a fun self-striping Felici Sport from Knit Picks. This particular colorway, Kingpin, was discontinued over the summer so I snagged a few skeins for a steal.
Just as school started, I began reading Old Yeller aloud to the kids. We're only a few chapters in, now that our read aloud time has been severely shortened. I really appreciate how children back then took pride in being given more responsibility, to prove their advance toward adulthood. I hope some of that rubs off on my kids. ;)
