|Last night, I was teaching a beginning knitting class at my local|
knitting shop, the Knit Knook and I cast on for another Hermione hat in this bright
pink in Cascade 220 Superwash. I can't remember what
color this since I sometimes don't keep the labels and clearly didn't in
this case. I'm making this hat for a friend's little girl. I love this pattern!
I can't tell you how many of this fun cabled hat I've made. I perused
several patterns at Ravelry, but I kept coming back to the Hermione hat.
It's a fun project without being too difficult or too boring. As for
reading this week, I just got Cooking for Isaiah yesterday as
I really need to get more proficient at gluten-free baking for myself and
especially for my husband who has a gluten intolerance. I always enjoy
reading cook books! I always pull
out Christmas 101 at this time of year for inspiration and I'm still reading
Beauty which is a re-telling of Beauty and the Beast. Since I'm up nursing the
twins a lot at night, I actually have time to read, but sometimes I listen to
books on my MP3 player as well. Last night, instead of reading Beauty, I
listened to Only the Good Spy Young (the 4th installment of the Gallagher Girls
series). Don't you just love that title?? Yes, I do enjoy YA novels from
time to time and this series is just fun. It's like Alias for the high school set.
|I had to include pictures of these arm warmers that I finished last |
night before I cast on the Hermione hat. I made these for my sister as an
early Christmas gift. I think she would have liked the thumb holes,
but I just liked the simplicity of the arm warmer and honestly, I didn't feel
like picking up stitches for the thumbs!
This is another pattern I found at Ravelry. It's called Toasty and
it's super quick and super easy. Boy, are they warm!
I'm trying to get better at photographing my work. I think this weekly exercise
in showcasing both my knitting and reading should help me improve my camera skills.
Thanks Ginny for hosting the weekly Yarn Along!
