For Yarn Along this week, I have 2 works-in-progress. A pair of socks for Finn, using the Easy Toddler Socks pattern, one I have used several times. He still fits in the toddler socks if I use sport weight, which makes the socks nice and thick, and if I adjust the length to match his foot. I can't believe how long this pair is! My littlest baby has such big feet now!
I'm nearly finished with the Tuscan Leaves Neckwarmer. I just need to finish the ribbing on the edge then add buttons. And block, to get rid of the curling on the edge. I really love this pattern. So elegant, yet practical. The lighting was wonky so early this morning. The color is Currant and really looks more burgandy than the pinkish red shown here. Very autumnal, I think.
As for the book I'm reading, I recently began reading Pie to the kids in the evenings. We've made 2 of the pies from the book now. (Recipes are included at the beginning of each chapter.) The most recent one, last evening, was the chocolate cream pie. The read is fun, set in the 1940s and largely a mystery, but the pie recipes take the cake...so to speak.
