Just as I tell myself I'm reaching the end of my Christmas knitting, I find a way to add more things to the list. Here are two that I've added that weren't on the list to begin with:
Pattern: Slouchy copy cat hat
Yarn: Katia Azteca, in a really pretty purple/blue blend
I'm excited about this hat, the wool feels so thick and snuggly. I've just finished the ribbing, so on to the good stuff!
I'm also trying to work up a couple of ear warmers/head bands for my daughters as little presents. I figure I can't go wrong with one more thing to open. Plus, I haven't knitted them anything for Christmas yet!
Pattern: ear warmer with crochet flower.
Yarn: Robin Fascination. This yarn was an Ebay purchase at a great price uhm, years ago. It is rather odd. Pretty though, the girls really like it.
The crochet flower might test my very limited knowledge of hooking, so wish me luck.
As for reading this week, I've picked up an old, friend Peter V. Brett. I love the trilogy he is currently writing, of which I've read two, the Painted Man and The Desert Spear. While I wait for The Daylight Wars I am reading his novellas. Currently I am on Brayan's Gold. While I'm not really one for Fantasy/Science Fiction there are a few authors out there from that genre I love, and he is one of them!
And while I sit here at my computer and write this blog post, it is snowing absolute buckets outside. It makes me think my groceries won't be delivered yet again today. Winter doesn't want me to get my treats. It is pretty though, here's a picture I took right before the heavens opened.
