Finished the Coronet the other day.  It's really cute---a little big for Meg, though.  It's a pretty fast knit with worsted wool

Making more progress on One Thousand Gifts, and I even started a list of gifts.  Bought a little book to keep in my book so I can count all day long.  I'm still not enamored of the book, but I like the exercise of being thoughtful and looking for things to be thankful for.

I'm thankful for the color and feel of this yarn.
But that's about it.  I actually kind of despise working with it.  It's not twisted tight enough and the strands come untwisted as I knit, so it's very easy to pick up a stray thread with the needle and cause little problems.  I found a shawl pattern that I picked up at the LYS and started it without even knowing what it looks like.  It will be a bit of a surprise, especially since I don't have enough yarn.  So it won't be very big, but I learned a new skill and I want to use this yarn and be done with it.

Joining Ginny today!


  1. I have been wanting to read Alice I Have Been... Are you enjoying it?

  2. I think the hat turned out great, looks really cute on your daughter.

  3. Cute hat! And I like that blueish color yarn for your shawl!

  4. Erin---I haven't read enough of Alice yet, but I think I'm going to like it.

    Barbara---It's a fictionalized account of the life of the real little girl who inspired Alice in Wonderland. Sounds weird, I know.

    Anke and Sarah---Thanks! I think it's a super cute hat and a very comfortable fit.


Thanks for dropping by! I would love to hear from you. Have a beautiful day! :-)
