Socks for Little Witches. A second pair of socks using this Poems sock wool. These are for Tadhg for her 7th birthday (which is ages away). I'm prepared early because I've just committed to a big knitting project for a client, which involves kilos of the most beautiful handspun alpaca wool and a lovely Heidi Kirrmaier pattern.
We finished The Horse and His Boy and the fourth Narnia book starts tonight. Prince Caspian. I can't say enough how thoroughly I'm enjoying these books. Dubhessa, who's 8 1/2 is following along pretty well, Tadhg who's nearly 7 doesn't seem to be understanding so much of the detail, but shes happy to listen and is concerned and relieved in the appropriate places! I'm delighted to be reading well written beautiful stories that appeal to both me and them.
The pile of knitted squares from Class Two Friday knitting sessions is growing steadily. I'll be sewing these into a blanket before the end of term I reckon. I was prepared for a reasonable variation in sizes from square to square, but it will be a challenge to make an even shaped blanket none the less.
