For ages my girls have been asking me for "a face mask" because they hate having cold faces. In truth I always sort of laughed it off because I thought they would look silly walking to school with one on (we lived in the city!)
Well, the other day I was surfing Ravelry (probably looking for another hat pattern if I'm truthful) and I came across the Wee Balaclava pattern. It is adorable, so I decided I would make them each one for this winter. We just moved into the Highlands of Scotland, and we are gearing up for a snow filled, cold winter. I figure they will be perfect for using with the sleds my Mom and Dad just sent us!
This has been a fun and fast project so far. I also get to practise my provisional cast on, which I've only messed about with before. I'll let you know how I get one. I used the provisional crochet method, and I watched a video on youtube for extra help!
Now on to reading. I am just a few pages into Villette, by Charlotte Bronte. I'm reading it on my new Kindle (thanks Mom and Dad, best birthday present ever). I've been wanting to read this book since I first read, and loved, Jane Eyre but my library doesn't have a copy. Thankfully, there are loads of free classic books for the Kindle. Sorted!! My favorite book of all time (one of many I think) is also free on the Kindle if you have one--The Counte of Monte Cristo. Such an awesome book!
