With this past weekend being so hot & spending a lot of time upstairs with the air conditioning I got quite a bit of knitting & reading done.
I finished the stripy socks from last week. I LOVE the yarn...Knit Picks Felici in Time Traveler (which is gone now). It knit up nice and soft. I hope it wears well. I did the heel in a darker grey yarn because I was afraid I wouldn't have enough of the Felici. I did but oh well because THEN I got to knit a newborn pair of stripy socks!
I couldn't wait to cast on SOMETHING for the new babe until we find out next week what it will be. I figure stripy socks are gender neutral. These are from one of the leftover balls of yarn. I plan on knitting up another little pair from the other ball.
I've been getting quite a bit of reading in too. Over the weekend I started & finished The Fault in our Stars on the recommendation of my sister. It was excellent. I couldn't put it down. Now I'm reading Dan Brown's new book. It's ok so far. I am liking reading about the art history of Italy.
