On the needles :: a sweater for #2. He's been very patient for a mama-made anything. I finally got a hat done for him a couple of months ago. We went looking for yarn to make Mr. Wiedz a sweater and found this Patons in mercury. Mr. Wiedz didn't love it. I asked the boys if any of them were interested in a sweater in this color and #2 spoke up first. (#3 is waiting for a cool green color.) I cast on with the pattern for the kids vest in More Last Minute Knitted Gifts, but now he's decided he wants a sweater. I think I'll use the percentage method and figure out a sweater as I go. I figure I have quite awhile of stockinette stitch before I need to worry too much.
On the nightstand :: Lydia's Charm. A nice fiction read with interesting characters set in an Amish community in Ohio. It's an easy read that I'm enjoying.
