1. Advent

No, stop, I am not ready, it is way too early. My thoughts this morning. How did it get so late in the year already, where did the time go? I am not quite ready to get ready for Christmas. We are in the middle of rearranging the living room and the house is a bit of a mess, lots of stuff needs to go to the library and the thrift store, and a lot of planning and plotting needs to happen.

But for now I am just going to enjoy a quiet morning, light a candle and have another coffee. Happy first Advent Sunday to everyone.

Another Hat

Knitting hats is as much fun as knitting socks, almost instant gratification. And I figure if I knit lots of hats for a cold Winter, it may not get so cold after all, like when you bring an umbrella and it never rains.

This one is called 'Roly Poly Brim' and the pattern can be found on Ravelry.

I knitted a hat for myself. The pattern is called Blizzard, it was inspired by a hat worn in Bones, you can find it on Ravelry. Although I knitted it in the largest size it is not as slouchy as it should be, but it fits and it is very warm.

Crochet Fun

I treated myself to a lovely new crochet book and could not resist trying a few of the patterns immediately with yarn from my stash. I am pretty sure the fall colored blocks (and many more of their siblings) will become a blanket next year.

Del's Birthday

Yesterday was Del's Birthday. I baked him a cake and he got his usual birthday hat, this year he requested a green one, he also picked the style. I also knitted him some slippers to keep his toes warm this Winter.
