Yarn Along--the Mad Hatter
I'm back for my first Yarn Along in many weeks. I really didn't feel that posting half-finished hats makes for a very interesting post, but I can't show you pictures of them on heads until after Christmas. In the above basket, I have two gray slouchy hats for two of my boys and a black Watchman's cap for another. I'll be knitting one more hat after I finish this one, and then, if I have time, I will squeeze in a couple of pairs of fingerless mitts. And the bag above? A birthday gift from a friend and kindred spirit. Just the right size for a small knitting project.
As for reading, I have put aside The Unvanquished and am currently just reading to the kids. I have a number of things in the seasonal book basket to read, and I have Farmer Boy on the shelf, waiting for me to finish the post-Civil War era kids' book, Shades of Gray.
How's your holiday knitting coming along?
