Okay, I'm on pair number 5 of wedding socks
and I have started the first side of the shawl.
Since it's just straight knitting it's very dull. But you can work without looking which is good for movies. We watched _The Blind Side_ with the little one. Whatever you might think of the book and movie, it can make for an educational moment with your 9 year old.
The shawl will be okay, I've never done that much Swiss darning before and I need to pick the right fabric.
Tomorrow is a day at home, I might get the peacock dyed if time allows.
