Following Ginny's weekly Yarn Along over at Small Things...
I've been happily and slowly plugging away at my fall sweater only to run out of yarn so close to the end. Because I've got to wait for more Shelter to come in, I decided that I'd better work on my Christmas knitting. I decided this summer that I wasn't going to go crazy like I did last year. I'm really trying not to but I keep thinking about projects that I can do. I took the time today to wind up yarn and see what I have. I think leg warmers are in store. Hats too. Oh and a cowl or two (or three)
I was humbled when my friend asked me to make a hat for her to give as a gift so I've been knitting away on that. It is such a cute little dead fish (if that isn't an oximoron) when it is finished and I hope it fits the recipient. I'm going for a Parrot Fish look and just decided that the fins need to be orange. It needs a little spunk. I'll have to dye that up tomorrow and wait some more.
This weeks reading finds me in the middle of Austenland. I'm enjoying the light read and it is moving nicely along. It does make me self examine my own obsession with Pride and Prejudice though. Maybe that same friend as mentioned above recommended this book to me because she knows I might have a problem.
Sigh... Mr. Darcy.
