Well, I have done pretty much nothing since Christmas.  I agreed to make three people a beret.  I finished one, and I’ve procrastinated on the last two.  I’m almost done with the brim on one.  I bought yarn for the last one.  My friend wanted something on the tan side, the picture doesn’t show the color very well.

Spring Beret

The pattern, again, is the Spring Beret.  I can’t make a nice link, so I’ll have to post the entire thing, sorry.  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spring-beret

Any ways, I also bought yarn for a sweater.  I’ma thinkin Amused. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/amused

I bought some Cascade 220 Heathers.  It is so soft and smooshy!  I’m itching to start work, but I have to finish the hats first.  I’ve been putting them off because they feel like work right now, and not much fun.  That’s just the type of person I am.  If I don’t enjoy what I’m doing, I refuse.  Once again, the picture doesn’t show the color very well.  It’s a gorgeous purple, heathered, simply dahling.

  Future Sweater!


I’m just going to hunker down and pound out those dern hats.   Maybe part of it is the fact that I’m a little intimidated by the sweater.  I’ve never knit an adult sized garment.  I’ve made baby/child, but not adult.  New Year for a new me, right?

Want to see what I got for Christmas?  I named her Ruby. picture-146


That’s a humidifier in the strings, if you’re wondering.  Best Christmas present I’ve ever gotten.

Sooo, what am I listening to.  I just found this new singer, Miranda Lee Richards.  Very mellow, just incredible.  Check out her song Life Boat.  I’ve also got a little Company of Thieves, Dr. Dog, and Raconteurs playin.
