~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading (though not at the same time!), and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~
We got in late last night from a long trip to Georgia to visit our family, so I am running a bit late this morning!
My sister Abby and I are both reading Unwrapping the Greatest Gift with our children in the days leading up to Christmas this year, and I had the opportunity to read the entry for December 1st to all of our children together. It was such a special way to begin this Advent season. This morning I will read the entry for December 2nd, having gotten in too late last night for reading, and we will close the day with December 3rd’s. It makes me happy to know that my sister and her family will be reading the same words tonight to her children.
I did lots of knitting on our trip, including a little pair of socks for Job, his St. Nicholas day gift. I knit that second sock all the way home yesterday. I just need to graft the toe. The yarn is Koigu KPPPM though I can’t find the band and don’t know the colorway. I chose it because it reminds me of autumn. The pattern is Toddler Socks from Creating a Family Home. I’ll try to get my notes up on Ravelry tonight. The only change I made intentionally was to extend the ribbing on the instep to the beginning of the toe decreases.
Are any of you frantically knitting gifts yet?
