What Are You Knitting? Part Deux

Just cast on these socks:

Aren't they fantastic?

Still plugging away on the entrelac scarf.

Also worked on the Garden View Shawlette yesterday while riding around in the car with Joe running errands!

Have to have something to get me through the boring sport Sunday...

Oh and I started reading a really wonderful book. The Wildwood by Colin Meloy illustrated by Carson Ellis. 

Prue McKeel's life is ordinary. At least until her brother is abducted by a murder of crows and taken to the Impassable Wilderness, a dense, tangled forest on the edge of Portland. No one's ever gone in—or at least returned to tell of it.
So begins an adventure that will take Prue and her friend Curtis deep into the Impassable Wilderness. There they uncover a secret world in the midst of violent upheaval—a world full of warring creatures, peaceable mystics, and powerful figures with the darkest intentions. And what begins as a rescue mission becomes something much greater, as the two friends find themselves entwined in a struggle for the very freedom of this wilderness. A wilderness the locals call Wildwood.

Well off to do a little knitting!  

Talk to you later,

Are you a fan of The Decemberists, Lynda? Colin Melloy is the lead singer, and their intricate folk/prog rock is pretty awesome. If you don't already know about them, I suggest The Crane Wife for a first listen.

Yup! You are right Shannon-they are pretty awesome and the book is enchanting!
Love the Granny Smith sweater too! What fun.
