First FO of the new year is a 2012 hanger-on-er.... basic socks that were done lickety-split after changing from pointy metal needles to blunt plastic (yuck, you say?? me, too, usually!) ones. Now that they are finished....I like them, and they were a nice interlude from the mitered square blanket, and they are tucked away for Christmas 2013 (hoping I remember where I stash them!).
A couple more rows were added to the blanket this week. Ten completed--dozens more to go. The fact that I needed yet another break from it was not a particularly good sign for finishing any time soon!!
Hearts!! Sewed one on to a little card for a friend's birthday. The rest might become Valentine cards?
My book is The Pig Did It by Joseph Caldwell. An American runs off to visit his aunt who lives in Ireland when an unrequited infatuation goes sour; he encounters a runaway pig before he even makes it to his aunt's house----and thus begins the mayhem. The back cover says: 'You will laugh your arse off!' So far, my 'arse' is still very much in tact, but I'm not very far into it yet. (It was another penny book from Amazon, so I'm most defintely not complaining!!!) I'll probably finish it-- nothing else on my shelves is calling to me, but I'm betting it's not one I'll be recommending!
