I started reading The Language of Flowers and it's a book that is hard to put down. From the very first page the story has been engaging and I eagerly want to read more. The book is about a woman who turns eighteen years old and the american foster system has failed repeatedly her during her childhood. She has attachment issues because her mother abandoned her and the foster parents she was placed with were not the best. I think what makes this a compelling read is that the author was a foster parent and has adopted a foster child (could be children, not sure). So even though I have no idea how this book will end, I highly recommend it.
My knitting has been focused on three knits-two are photoed above. My husband's socks-one done with the other on the needles. My second citron shawl! Oh how I love to knit this pattern and I love picking up this project, it does give me great joy. My third knit not in the photo is the orange hat that is my knit and read hat. I am thinking of always having a hat on the needles so I can do two things at the same time. Then I feel productive and I get a piece of clothing in the process!
Yesterday I finished my sock tutorial on how I knit socks from the cuff down on four double pointed needles. It's very old school but it's my go to way of how I knit socks. Check it out if you are interested.
