I am joining with Ginny and friends for this weeks sharing of knitting and reading.
On the needles this week is my first ever socks. It is growing very slowly. I am knitting these as a Christmas present (yes I know it's only August) for a friend and I plan to knit a pair for my husband too. This is why they are a slow project as I am only knitting them when my husband is not around. For the last eight months he has hardly been home, this month he has been at home pretty much every day!
I was concerned that I would have a ladder using dpns as the last project I made using them, finger puppets for my youngest, they were really obvious. They don't look like they are so I am hoping that I am getting the tension right.
I am still reading the same book as last week, The Undercover Economist by Tim Harford. I have been really busy this week and reading has taken a back seat. I am still enjoying it and it is slowly starting to make more sense.
