Christmas in Killarney

N. Christmas in Killarney - make something green

So I did.  I cast off a forest green wool hat this evening.  Moratorium on Christmas music is still on until December 1 at Chez Moi but I'm stocking that basket. 

I also knit one warm woolen mitten (minus the thumb)  from the Shetland fleece I spun on the  weekend.  I am already wondering if I will have to spin more before finishing.  That would mean hand carding.  (Did you picture my eyes rolling skyward? That's where they went.)  Even with only 21 sts on 5.5mm dps, these mitts are super thick and eating up yarn like it's going out of style.  They will be pretty awesome when they're done, though.

I've been trolling Ravelry for some ornaments to knit and I scored at least 3 patterns that I can foresee making in the very near future.  It just occurred to me that baby socks would also quality for something small.  Hellllloooo!  Why haven't I thought of them before?? Sheesh!  I love it when this thinking thing actually produces some successful results.

Whoo hoo!!!!

You know, I have a Celtic Christmas cd which no one would actually recognize as Christmas music unless they listen closely, which works nicely when I want to crank up the Christmas music a few weeks early without annoying anyone....:)
