More gifts in progress

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:






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!


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.

  3. I had to laugh at your first sentence. How true. How true. The newly-added projects look very nice. I like the headband. My daughter likes headbands, alhtough I think she would opt out of the flower on it. That view you have is absolutely wonderful. So peaceful with all that snow.

  7. The Fascination yarn IS pretty - I can see why the girls like it! Your snow is pretty but I feel colder just looking at it!

  8. Ooh, I can't wait to see the slouchy hat! Don't worry about the crochet flower, crochet is my first love but if you can knit you can figure it out : )

  9. That view is amazing, lucky you. The knits look great, I was wondering how the Katia yarns felt, I've seen them around but not knitted with any yet?
