Well, since I last posted, the Philadelphia Eagles are headed to the Super Bowl! I have to admit that I (as well as a lot of other people here) keep thinking to myself, "Did that really happen?" But it did, and it's been fun to see how excited people are about it all. (And annoying to see how many people are so morally superior and want you to know they are above liking sports. Because they NEED for us to know. Sigh.) Even The Tim is excited, which is saying a lot!
As I mentioned in a previous post, I frogged and started over a pair of socks I'd been knitting, even though I'd gotten to the start of the gusset. I wanted to make a pair of socks for The Tim, and hoped to do something different than the usual, basic sock. I was going along, liking the look of the socks, but once I did the heel and started on the gusset, I realized that the way the yarn was, the foot of the sock would look really different than the leg, and I didn't like the result. So to the frog pond it was, and in the end, the basic sock was started because I think it is what agrees best with this yarn. I've made some progress - a few more inches and it will be heel flap time.
As for reading, I'm currently reading this book, and so far, it's been really fun and entertaining:
I'm also listening to the audiobook version of this one, part of the Flavia de Luce series:
I really enjoy this series, and it's even better (in my opinion) in listening form, as the person reading them is so good at doing the voices of the various characters. Hearing Flavia's commentary is even funnier than reading it!
That's all for now. What you working on and reading? Do you enjoy audiobooks at all?
I'm joining Kat and some others for Unraveled Wednesdays, so head over there if you want to see what else is being knit and read ...
