It's been sooo long since I've posted any knitting on here.
Cameron gave me a gift certificate to a local yarn store for Christmas. I think it stayed in my purse approximately 24 hours. I had to get something for our trip to Mississippi!
When I get yarn (or fabric) I don't care if it's for me or not. It's the fun of knitting and sewing, not just the finished product. So I ended up with yarn for a hat for Callie and some for a project for myself too.
Callie had requested a slouchy hat in grey and there is a perfect pattern in my Jane Brocket book, The Gentle Art of Knitting. A book I really recommend, by the way.
It was a fun and easy knit. I may have been a bit off on my gauge though, because it was a bit on the big size and I did need to make some adjustments.
During this time I was also reading The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. My favorite Kate Morton book so far I think. Although, they are all the kind of book you want to stay up all night to read. Definitely the type of book I need to save for school breaks!
