Here's a quick peek at a pair of socks I've been working on for Maria. This has been a real challenge in terms of figuring out the pattern. Well, it's finally come together after about 5 YouTube videos!
Heel flaps, turning heels, and shaping toes....what an education! I think I'm learning more in this homeschool than the kids. The yarn is a finger-weight sock yarn from Trekking XXL. The color is green. If you're interested, you can check out the specs over at my Ravelry page in my projects section. I like the way the striping came out.
As for our read-aloud, I've been reading Whatever Happened to Justice. This has been a lot of fun for all of us. We've been learning about common law, encroachment, agreements, tacit agreements, and ambient encroachment. I know it sounds boring, but the kids like the examples I give. They're always howling with my examples. We've also talked a bit about the rise and decline of a civilization based on free trade or the lack thereof. I just purchased Whatever Happened to Penny Candy. I probably should have read this one aloud first...oh well.
