Not a whole lot of knitting progress to show for myself this week - but that's the way it goes with the second sock. the first sock is terribly exciting, and then the second sock is... well,
it's just the second sock.
So I'm plunking along. the 1x1 rib is becoming a little tedious, but I'm determined to finish by the end of the week.
And my organic cotton just arrived for Elijah. Many Elijah's actually. A request from a friend for a new baby... and I am much more than happy to oblige! Because how cute is Elijah? And I'm going to put a little jingly bell in his butt, just for kicks, when he's all done and stuffed up.
And lastly, on the reading front, big exciting news!
We are reading aloud Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Johann loves it! I'm so thrilled to be reading these more involved chapter books together now, I can't even tell you how great it is to read at night and have him so engaged in the story. He was really excited when Charlie Bucket got that golden ticket. And so, so was I!
Whatcha making and reading this week?
