Joining Ginny for Yarn Along this week. On the needles is a candy cane striped sock. I'm hoping to knit a pair for each of the boys for Christmas. My purpose is as an extra layer of warmth inside their boots. I know that they will use them to skate around the house, possible colliding into furniture and walls.
I am currently reading Maragret Atwood's latest novel The Year of the Flood. http://yearoftheflood.com/ca/ To those who may not know her work, Atwood is kind of the rock star of Canadian lit. I was first introduced to her in university and she is brilliant. Having said that, this book was on my nightstand for almost a year before I picked it up. Having finally done so, I regret not reading it earlier. I am really enjoying it. Love her word play and biting humour. I highly recommend her books if you were looking for an introduction to Canadian lit. Now I'm off to see what others are knitting and reading this week.
