Reading: The Complete Father Brown Stories by G. K. Chesterton. Yes, still working my way through it. I’m demonstrating my ability to read and knit while holding the book open with my toes. Odd, isn’t it?

Knitting: Smaug socks! (Click for link) *grumble, grumble* I’m a little worried that Smaug may triumph over me. I’ve turned the heel and I’m working on the gussets right now. I hope it isn’t too snug! There might have to be a good deal of blocking… Only problem? No sock blockers….

Listening: The Nutcracker! I’ve had this record for years. And I only paid 25 cents for something I listen to all year round. 🙂

Watching: Oh, North and South, I do love thee. I’m not thrilled that the library put a sticker over Richard Armitage’s face! Talk about uncool much. I love the mini-series to death, so now I want to find the novel. Did you like it?

Reading: The Complete Father Brown by G.K. Chesterton. I’m about half way through this book. I really think reading Sherlock helped me understand Father Brown, even though they are both very different. I’ve read Fr. Brown before, but was never really able to make heads or tails of it… Slowly, slowly, I’m working my way through it. 🙂

Knitting: Smaug socks! I want to have both of them done before the Battle of the Five Armies comes out in our area. The pattern is my second actual patterned sock. I love the way it is knitting up. The pattern really looks like scales.
Disclaimer: I don’t have more than one sock project going right now. I finished the socks from two weeks ago, and the sock from last week. If I had more than one sock going at once, I would be in big trouble… 😉
(P.S. The second picture is a sneak peek at something I’m working on right now. Stay tuned till next week! Can you guess what it is?)

Listening: Since it is officially Advent, listening to Christmas music is acceptable. I give you leave to listen away. 🙂

Watching: Return to Cranford, the sequel to Cranford. Oooo!!! Talk about a great show! This one has Tom Hiddleson in it…better known, I’m sure, as Loki from the Avengers. I will warn you, though, Cranford, both of them, have high body counts. Way to rip my heart out, BBC!!
