Good morning, today is another blog post and of course I totally forgot to take a good photo during the day yesterday-although there was very very little sunshine. I am starting to believe we will have a very rainy Christmas...boo hoo.
For knitting this week, I am on the second scrap hat. I finished the first hat and blogged about it here. So as you can guess I am thoroughly enjoying the decreasing of the sock yarn project. The hat in the above photo has more odds and ends but I am trying to stick to some color scheme. I'm happy with it. My other knitting project is my shawl. I am on my first chart out of three. I am on the second repeat out of six. I have a very very long ways to go.
I am currently reading Digging to America and only just started it last night. It has been on my bookshelf for quite some time and I have no opinions as of yet. I finished The Wednesday Sisters which was a very good book, I just didn't like the ending. There was nothing wrong with the ending it just seemed too far fetched for me. I would still recommend the book and give it a try.

I was very confused when I saw the picture - I was thinking "I'm sure I commented on that finished hat recently!"ReplyDelete
I'm impressed with how much progress you've already made on hat 2!
You are just whizzing along on that second hat!!! Looking great. (Is you daughter waiting in the wings for it???--the other looked super on your son!) I'm wishing I had something fun to knit on--I feel a knitting slump approaching. (I'll get over it!!!)ReplyDelete
You've always got such great projects on the needles! I love that sock yarn hat. I've got my fingers crossed for snow on Christmas Day.ReplyDelete
I do love those scrappy hats. I made a couple worsted ones this year. The shawl is pretty, but oh my on the charts! I hope the rain stays away for you.ReplyDelete
Both projects are wonderful, especially that shawl. Such a lovely grey. I'm with you... I think our Christmas will be rainy. I suppose that's better than icy.ReplyDelete
I like your scrappy color scheme! It doesn't look thrown together at all.ReplyDelete
That shawl is going to be amazing! It's always a little discouraging to me to still be on a first chart, but once I hit the next chart I feel like I'm making serious progress- I hope the same is true for you!
Look at you go!ReplyDelete
I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday.
Loving the scrap hats! :) It's looking to be a rainy Christmas for us, too ... sigh!ReplyDelete
I absolutely love the hat! And the shawl is looking gorgeous.ReplyDelete
The shawl looks lovely and soft! And I love your scrappy hat! They are both just darling!ReplyDelete
The hat looks great! I love the greens and browns together.ReplyDelete
I hate when you read books that turn out to have poor endings... hope you enjoy this new novel more!
Thanks for link to shawl - I'm looking for one to knit.ReplyDelete
Love Leanne NZ
The hat is adorable. Green is my fave!ReplyDelete
Look at you fly with those hats! I'm glad the first one was such a hit - that always makes it so much more fun!ReplyDelete
Hope your rain clears. We're looking at a brown and warmer than usual Christmas...I've got to admit I'm kind of sad to see the snow melting...In December. I'm more than happy to accept that in January. ;)
Love the idea of a scrap hat. The colors are coming together well :)ReplyDelete
Beautiful projects. I have plenty of sock yarn myself; a hat sounds like a great idea.ReplyDelete
beautiful work, dearie!ReplyDelete
we are looking to a rainy christmas here, too....complete with a thunderstorm tonight!
Oh I like the looks of the hat :) And the shawl is looking lovely too :)ReplyDelete

I really like the hat! & I'm sure I've read that book before but I just can't seem to remember what happens!ReplyDelete
