New Year Yarn Along

Here's my current project.  I just cast on for another Hermione hat last night.  I don't know how many of these hats I've made, but it's such a fun hat.  I'm making this one for a friend's little girl.  After this one, I'm going to take a break from this pattern for a long while!  I finished this hat just the other night, but I thought I better show an in-progress project for Ginny's Yarn Along even if I haven't gotten very far yet.  Okay, so you can't see what I'm reading because it's my cool new green Kindle cover! My hubby got me a Kindle for Christmas and it's just awesome!  I've already downloaded several books and a couple of cookbooks too!  Right now, I'm reading A Thousand Gifts which is currently only available on Kindle!  I've included a cover of the book below because it's just so pretty and inviting!
I also organized my yarn basket.  I took out every skein and hank and organized them.  I love looking at my yarn basket.  It always makes me feel like I live in a very cozy house.  A home needs both yarn and books to be cozy!
 
I love the cover of this book.  That's the only drawback of the Kindle.  I can't enjoy beautiful artwork and photos like this one!
