Hmmmm very little knitting. The above and below are a new sock design for a clog sock - very pretty IRL with a lace heels and little flower clusters on the leg and insteps. Yarn is CTH in 'peacock' colourway. 2nd sock is underway - but the colour is so dark I can't knit it at night and have little time for daytime knitting right now! 2nd pair of socks posted on SAM5 -
J has now read (one after another) the complete Harry Potter series - he's listening (again) to number 1 on his Ipod. He's now started on 'Northen Lights' by Phillip Pullman - but there have been lots of days out, playing with friends and cousins and the puppy - so a few distractions! He is coming along in leaps and bounds with his maths, we have well and truly cracked fractions - only multiplying/dividing of them left to cover, he's got head around decimals and percentages too - I am impressed with hard he has been trying. This week he's been looking at Newton's Three Laws and Gravity and Relativity - good thing M understands all this science stuff!
We are looking to taking him to the local archery club as well as he has tried it at C-parcs everytime we've gone and really has a knack for it. He's still swimming every week too and last week expressed a desire to learn to snowboard (he needs to grow a bit 1st) - we are avid watchers of Ski Sunday and J is well taken with the idea of a snow holiday next year!!
We have been out and about a lot - lots of exciting fun stuff. Lots of art and making models with Sculpey - so very busy.
I am reading Neil Gaiman's - 'Stardust' ooooo I love his lyricism, really good story telling - am totally hooked and have asked for more of his books for my birthday later this month.
