WIP :: Socks and Minions

Untitled


Reading: I'm still lingering in the wonderful world of The Forgotten Garden. I'm about halfway through it and I love the story! The first book by Kate Morton - The House At Riverton, left me a bit disappointed, but this one is SO good! Just hoping her next two books are just as good :)

Knitting and crocheting: Swallowtail is blocking - so fo post soon :) You know me, I must have a pair of socks on the needles. And Hubby still needs more socks, so I found a blue skein in my stash and casted on a simple rib sock. First one done and I'm starting the heel on the second one.
And as you can see, the minion is not done... Instead I had to cast on a second one. Both Endre and Eirin wanted one, so I think it's best I finish them at the same time ;) Hopefully I'll have them done this week.

  3. I agree...I read The Forgotten Garden first (and absolutely LOVED it), then The House at Riverton (did not LOVE, but was okay)....I am reading The Distant Hours now....I'm not as enthralled as I was with The Forgotten Garden, but I do like the story a bit more than The House at Riverton.....I crocheted a minion awhile ago, but just made up the pattern as I went along....

  4. I adore Kate Morton. I am listening to The Secret Keeper on my ipod when I run and have been eyeing The Forgotten Garden so will have to see about picking it up.

  5. I love your socks! Hand-knit socks are just the best - but I do have such trouble getting through knitting a pair! I get so bored and just want to be done with them.
    Looking forward to seeing your finished Minion!
