Last night I created a ridiculous goal of finishing this baby sweater by tonight. The chances of that are slim but I do have a crazy kind of fun making silly goals. You see, that lady who was due "any day" now for about two to three weeks had her baby last Friday. We ran into the new dad at a local restaurant so I heard the news straight from a reliable source. So wouldn't it be nice for my husband to have a wrapped up baby sweater at Thursday's racquetball game??? (there should not be a letter "c" in racquet, looks weird but spell check is telling me I'm wrong). I just started the first sleeve ...time is ticking.
I finished those sparkly socks on Monday night and the post is here. I think through the summer I will always have a pair of socks on the needles. I would love to knit two or three pairs for my husband. His current hand knit socks are looking pretty "loved".
I continue to read The Lace Reader and it's a really good book so far. I'm half way through it. I love that the story is told in the first person and sometimes in the third person. Switches it up a bit. There is a mystery and of course I want to know every single detail so I keep on reading. That is a good book! I also have started Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott. I so enjoyed her other book that I'm going to read all of hers. She has a refreshing raw voice and writes things I think about in my head.
So what are you knitting and reading?
