It has been a brilliantly quiet week. I have been nose deep in a test knit (above) and some lovely secret knitting (below).
The color has been altered on the secret knitting to prevent revealing the recipient. I am knitting along with Liesl's Mystery Hat Swap. Such fun to knit for someone who all your know is their favorite colors and hat style.
Another project for one of Liesl's knit alongs. These finished sock are my January submission for the Monthly Sock Challenge.

Lots of yarn in my week, right? As I mentioned in a previous post there is something about the new year that all knitting feels shiny and fun, whether it is a WIP or new project. Are you finding the same thing?
Yes, I realize that the your should be you're. :) Too late to correct as this imperfection is already out in the world.
Trying to keep my New Year's resolution to be a better person. I have been making little bookmarks and leaving them in library books for someone who needs them to receive.
Another resolution or goal of mine was to read more this year. Ever since knitting has taken a hold of my life, reading has fallen to the waist side. This year I am challenging myself to read 12 books. In true Andi-form, I have three books on my reading list. Much like my knitting, I don't always focus just on one at a time.
That is my week in a nutshell. Knitting, listening, and reading, not too shabby. How did your week treat you? Did you find yourself on task with things you wanted to accomplish?
Before I leave you we have a winner for the Legendary Knits Vol. 3 giveaway!
I like all the patterns, but the Little Mermaid sweater is very charming. Thank you for a chance to win.
Thank you to to all who entered. There will be another book review and giveaway on Monday February 2nd. :) Margene, I have forwarded your email address to the designer.
Have the best day today!
