Yarn Along ~~ finishing up


joining Ginny for a Yarn Along

knitting:

~finishing up a Little Red as a gift for my daughter, she'll love this.
~finishing up another Pilot Cap to add to the shop, I wish I had the knitting skills to make these for my own babies.  I do enjoy adding them to my shop when I get the chance and some suitable yarn.

Both of these projects are close to being finished and I'm thinking about what's next, I need some simple straightforward knits to keep me occupied over the kids winter break…

~a colour affection shawl
~another wool vest for my daughter.  I'd love some pattern suggestions (in a 4 year size range), she has two in the cap sleeve pattern (these are so practical but something else would be a nice change).  I like these wool vests for school days so she has a nice wool layer over her core, but she's not sweltering in a long sleeve sweater.  I also put them on her on cold nights as an extra layer over flannel pjs, that girl has a hard time keeping blankets on her!
~I'll be trying this hat out over the holidays too

reading:

~Dissolution  my mind is often drifting when reading this book, I hear the ending is worth it though.
~Circular Knitting Workshop, this book is a gift but I'm taking a little look through it to make sure it's suitable,  it looks like a wonderful resource.  I hope to add it to my book shelf too.  I thought since I can knit in the round on DPN's and use the magic loop I was all good, but I have a lot to learn too!
