Knitting




On the needles this week is two nearly finished socks.  I have turned the heal on both and am knitting the foot part on one and the gusset on the other.  I have until Sunday to finish them, we have a long car journey to make on Friday so I am hoping I can get them knitted in time to give them to my Mum for her birthday on Monday.

Reading wise I am taking a break from Shock Doctrine to read something very different that I found in the library this week, Raising Girls by Steve Biddulph.  I read the book he wrote about raising boys just after my eldest was born, I read very few parenting books in those early days but I liked his writing style.  I am only a few pages in so far but I am liking what I read.

What are you knitting and/or reading this week?

Joining in with Ginny for this weeks sharing of knitting and reading and Tami for this weeks work in progess.
