-:- yarn along // bossypants and socks

Hopefully by this time next week, these socks will be done and on their way to my little brother - just in time for his birthday and his departure for geology field camp. I'm about half an inch away from starting the toe decreases, so my goal should be totally attainable - I might even finish them this weekend!

Book-wise, I'm still reading Bossypants by Tina Fey. I've written before about how hesitant I am to read these kind of funny girl books (obviously I'm not too hesitant, since this will be the second one I've read this year) but Bossypants is just so smart and well-written - the humor aspect of it is almost secondary.

Don't get me wrong - I have already laughed out loud several times - but I don't get the feeling that Tina set out to write a book that was hilarious. I think she is just hilarious and that comes out naturally through her writing. And I like that.

Happy Wednesday, all.

  1. love the tweediness of the socks! My son will be doing a research experience for undergraduates in Math this summer for 8 weeks, but he'll be inside so no need for woolie socks ;)

  2. I'll have to add that book to my goodreads list! Gorgeous socks! I've decided to wear mine instead of trying to preserve their beauty.....I took a picture : )

  3. little bro will really appreciate those socks in the field!!! how thoughtful of you!!!


I LOVE reading your comments! Thanks for saying hi!
