I made the sample socks from 2-at-a-time Toe-up Socks, and they fit my little boy perfectly! Thick, wool socks are a bit warm for this time of year, so they've now been set aside for a few months.
I read Unearthing Your Ten Talents by Kevin Vost. It's a very readable summary of St. Thomas Aquinas' thoughts on growing in virtue. It provided some food for thought, yet was a pretty quick and easy read.
