This one is already finished, and I've started on the second of these socks for Tim. The yarn is Zauberball Crazy which is a thin yet fun yarn to knit with. The colors that are on my monitor are pretty close to true.
Mostly I've been working on Astor, and I'm almost done with the back (and this is a LONG sweater, which I like). tt is now too big to work on while reading so that's a bit of a challenge!
I read a good 'mystery' over the weekend: "Winter Ghosts" by Kate Mosse. It's really more of a novella...it's fairly short, and if you've read anything else by Kate Mosse or are fascinated by Catharism you'll figure out the mystery fairly quickly, even so this is a well written little story that I enjoyed.
