My local yarn store is having a sale and I was able to go. ALONE. I love it when my husband is home! I got him a eggnog latte as a "Thank you."
I bought fingering weight yarn to make this beret for Callie and these handwarmers....probably for us to fight over. :) I may have to go get some more yarn. When those first became popular, I thought they were silly, but last year I borrowed her pair from Target a couple of times. They do come in handy.
I've never knit with this kind of yarn before. It and the needles are so tiny!
As for reading, I am finishing up the Chesterton book. It also has readings for the Twelve Days of Christmas. I had no idea until a few years ago that those days are after Christmas and not before. I had never heard of Epiphany or Three Kings day either. I would love to add that to our traditions, but it's hard to add to an already very full season. I do love the idea of it though.
I also plan to start reading Putting Amazing Back Into Grace in earnest. It is borrowed from our pastor and I need to return it. I just got sidetracked with the holidays.
Joining in with Ginny today at Small Things.
