Yarnalong: "No Way Out", by Susan Sleeman, and Baby Socks

I'm linking up with Ginny, over at Small Things, who says, "Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading . . . I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading?"

Hooray!  A yarnalong!  I haven't done this in a while and I've missed it! :)

Anyway, onward! Here's what I'm reading and knitting:

The book:  I've been reading "No Way Out" by Susan Sleeman. Okay, here's the thing about this romantic suspense: the bad guy not only lives next door to the heroine, he lives on the other side of her duplex. Terrifying much? Yep. That counts as scary enough for me . . .

The knitting: My cousin is having her first baby, and I wanted to knit a little something for him. So I made a baby hat from this free pattern, and now I'm making itty-bitty baby socks (seriously, is there anything cuter than itty-bitty baby socks) from this free pattern.

I love making socks (as you can see here, here, and here), but this is my first time making them for babies. They feel like they are going so quickly, just because of the size! The process is exactly the same, just . . . smaller.

Okay, that sounds super-obvious, but experientially, it's a revelation. :)  

What are you making and reading this week?

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell

The yarn colour looks lovely. I just love knitting any baby clothes - so tiny and adorable!

I'm loving all the small things right now...I am actually making the same socks right now using Patons sock yarn, just finished the first one and its so gosh darn cute. That's so funny! It's a great pattern I'm sure that I will be using it again and again. You can take a gander at mine on Ravelry if you like ID cookier293.
