Joining Ginny for her Yarn Along again this morning, and although I've had little time for reading lately, aside from the million children's books I'm always reading to the kids, I have read an essay or two from Farmer Jane in the last week so I guess that counts. I also just started a pair of fingerless mitts which will likely be the last project that I make for myself this year before the frantic holiday knitting commences.
The yarn is Shivaya Naturals Peruvian Alpaca in ember, which has a lovely fall vibe, I do believe. The alpaca is ever so soft, and I think it will be quite cozy wrapped around my hands this winter for an extra bit of warmth.
In finally-finished news, Elizabeth's socks (info in previous post) are now on her feet instead of lingering still on my needles.
She loves them, and they are just a little bit long on her diminutive feet so I hope they'll last for a while.
Philip's Turn-A-Square is also finished, but since it's a stocking stuffer, Finn is modeling.
I had to adjust the pattern down for worsted weight yarn on size 8 needles so I'll try to get my notes up on ravelry soon. I do like this simple hat pattern on little boys. :)
And now I've finished all of the kids' stocking stuffer hats. If only the rest of the Christmas knitting would go so quickly!
