Sock It To Me Monday and So Many Other Things

I made a pair of socks this week. They are knit out of Knit Picks Felici in the Cheshire Cat colorway. They are fine. I’m trying to work my way through my self striping stash, and this is what I pulled out. My cold knocked my brain out for most of last week, and sock knitting was about the only thing I could do.

Last weekend we met up with John’s family to go on a horse drawn carriage ride. It was going to be a sleigh ride, but we don’t have enough snow. We really lucked out with weather, as it was in the upper 20s for our ride after a week of highs not getting above 10.

Today the kids and I spent most of the day at a homeschool winter party. We read books and played games. The parents put on a play. After that Audrey and I headed to Girl Scouts. All of that means I’ve had enough time with people for the week.

Good news! I’m finally over my cold.

Bad news! I’m getting a new cold. Elliot, once again, is patient zero in our house. He has been sick for a couple of days, and now the rest of us are sick.

We managed to make igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks last week out of crayons. It was a fun project, and now I know that if you make metamorphic rocks out of crayons it looks remarkably like our back yard after Wrigley eats a box of crayons.

I hope to write about my November and December books later this week. I will also post an update on my Vertices Unite (spoiler alert: I have not touched it since the cast on party). I’m going to host a KAL knit night on Feb. 5, so if you were not on the first call and want to be on the second call let me know and I’ll get you added. I’m thinking about doing a monthly call for the next few months, because I really like hanging out in Blogville.

I hope you all have a great week. Especially if you started a new job today.

      1. I tend to slack on vitamins in the summer when I know I’m eating good quality fresh fruits and vegetables but take them religiously in the winter when fruits and vegetables are the ones that have traveled a long distance and aren’t as bright and vibrant. I’ve noticed recently that even bananas are pretty bad this year.

  1. Oh my goodness – I hope you and all in your house are feeling better! Both the carriage ride and the homeschool party sound like so much fun 🙂 Also, I love your method for teaching about the different rock types – that sounds like a great learning activity. I love your socks!
