Fresh off the needles....the last big-foot-man-socks of the season. Another close call as you can see. Luckily, I decided to make these fraternal/not identical socks.
Lots of stockinette means lots of reading; I was able to make it half-way through The Art of Fielding by Chad Harback before running out of sock. Why did I think this had something to do with Henry Fielding? It's been setting on my shelf since summer. Had I known it was a BASEBALL book !!!!! I would have grabbed it much sooner. (I'm really missing baseball season. Only 106 days to opening night...107 days til traditional opening day with the Reds; this year it just happens to coincide with Square Root Day, which I'm sure we'll all be also celebrating, right?)
Anyway, the socks are finished, but the book is not. I'm enjoying it a lot, though. It was A New York Times Book Review Best Book of the Year (2011), Best Book of September 2011 at Amazon and later awarded Amazon's Best Book of the Year, and was short listed for the Guardian First Book award. It's much more than a baseball book. It's a fun, easy read about friends, relationships, family, and love, and while I'm not yet finished with it, I can heartily recommend it.
