Look what came in the mail.


My backordered Noro yarn. I was thinking with the new fake isle hat on magnets, I might use this yarn to make my husband a hat. Not all three skeins, but one of the three. I also ordered yarn from Knitpicks to make him a fair isle hat from the book Acessorize... or something like that. Latest issue of Interweave with several promising patterns. Including one cardigan and thrummed mittens which I have been meaning to try for way too long!

Overall a fun and uneventful weekend. I don't mind that though. I love quiet time to myself. It seems I don't get enough time to myself. I have been working on my Christmas shopping. I know you don't want to hear it, but I have. I've been doing pretty well too. I have most of my small family done. I really tried to have things shipped to the house. I am not a shopper and I hate crowds, so buying online is so easy to do! I am almost finished with my niece, Gracie's sweater for Christmas. Just have to sew it up and it'll be done. I picture for you soon. It is coming along really nicely. Once this is seemed up tonight I am thinking of casting on for Trellis for my other niece. Although I am having cravings for socks... I want to get started on the latest 6SoxKAL pattern - Iris Garden... I'll keep you posted.

The Noro is so nice. I have never knit with it. I plan to buy that issue of Interweave knits for the thrummed mittens.
I envy you having your Christmas shopping underway. At this point I have no idea what I'm getting anyone...

Like you, I don't get enough quiet time alone. When I do, it is so precious to me.

I'm glad to hear that someone else has started Christmas shopping. I've only picked up a few items so I'm jealous that you're getting yours done so early.

I haven't seen the Iris Garden pattern yet. I need to see take a peek since I'm finally not afraid of socks anymore. Maybe I'll finally knit some of the ^Socks Patterns I have.
