Low Key

Holy cow, it's been ages since I've posted!

First thing, go check out those gorgeous socks that Donna finished. Cookie A's pattern. I am tempted but not enough to buy the pattern and cast on. I bought a couple of her patterns last year and still haven't knit either one.

Turns out that it was a very non-knittery Christmas/Holiday. I finished hubby's sleeping bag which he took for a test drive Christmas afternoon. 14 skeins of Briggs and Little Heritage! Now Colin desperately wants one of his very own. OH MY!

Colin didn't waste any time breaking in his new socks.

That was the extent of the knit gifts. Hubby's sweater is not done. For some unknown reason it ended up on the back burner.

Over the holidays we've watched a lot of movies, including a Star Trek movie marathon. Tonight we're going to all tuck in and watch the third Pirates of the Caribbean. Might even knit a bit. I've been on a dish cloth knitting jag lately. Nice and brainless.

Have you guys seen these? So darned cute! Now I have to decide if I'm going to make those or the French press slippers. One can never have enough slippers.

My modified booga bag is almost dry and I will post a picture once the handles are attached.

Lastly, I'm starting to consider patterns for the Knitting Olympics. And even though I plan on going on a yarn diet in the new year, yarn for the Olympics project may be the exception. I'm thinking along the lines of another colour work sweater.

I'm still reading Possession: A Romance by A.S. Byatt, November's selection for Readers Annonymous. I'm enjoying it much more when I can sit and read for an extended period. It's definitely not a book where you can read a portion of a chapter here and there. It's taking me longer than normal since the dictionary is my constant companion during this read.
