Cast on my second Baktus as a quick and easy project after my attempt to find a sock pattern failed miserably. You know how it goes - find pattern, pattern wont download. Search Ravelry and find another pattern, but don't have the right size needles. Back to Ravelry again and find yet another pattern, this time I don't know the magic loop thing (yet). And so I gave up on making myself a pair of socks, but just for the moment.
I did manage to finish this cute hat that I thought was for me. Boy was I wrong, Hannah snatched it up and it has hardly been off her head. This was a quick knit and I was able to use some yarn left over from Christmas sweaters. The tassels were fun thanks to the video recommended over at SpiderWomanKnits.
I also finished the Toast arm/hand warmers I was working on last week, but find it hard to take pictures of my own arms, go figure. So until I can get one of the girls to snap a picture they will remain a mystery.
As for reading, I am almost finished with Knitting, by Anne Bartlett . I am really enjoying this novel. It is a quick read, I just need to find more time to read. The girls and I are still enjoying the antics of the Penderwick sister. And I have been thumbing through Nourishing Traditions. LOVE, JUST LOVE this book. It has so much wonderful information organized in such a user friendly format. Right now I have my flour soaking to make crackers tomorrow in the dehydrator. Who would of thought. I can't wait to see how they turn out.
