Finally back in circulation

Well I had the most wonderful visit with my sister and my nephew. You can read all about it on and see photos here and here. I'm missing them both like mad. Oscar is adorably cute - and the sweater I made is almost close to fitting him:

The sweater - slightly fuzzy.A better shot of the cables

I also knitted a fair isle hat for Sal, colours chosen by her:

(She refused to pose with it on, so you just get my hand as a model

And here is the collection of fair isle hats to date. Guess what everyone's getting for Christmas this year?

But thankfully tonight was Stitch'n'Bitch to keep me occupied. It was a small crowd (Amby, I miss you!) - me, MontiLee and Lynne from City Knits. I spent about 3 hours casting on yet another fair isle hat, and then putting 5 repeats on the green aggressive beginners scarf (remember that from months ago?). Thankfully the pattern was still mostly lurking in the back of my memory as I'd forgotten to bring the written instructions, so after ripping the first row back a couple of times, I was off and running. Metaphorically speaking, that is. Literally I stayed at Sweetwaters with a nice pot of their Jasmine Pearl tea.

One more project made its way onto my needles, but no photos as yet. Another Booga Bag. Mostly because I needed some "I don't need to see this" knitting to get me through two cinema trips, but also again to add to the Christmas pile.

So that's mostly it. Now off to catch up with everyone else's news...

I'm so bummed I missed you last night!!! Will you be coming to the Ferndale SnB on Thursday? I'm loving that one because I can stay until 9:15pm and we have had a great time the last couple of Thursdays. The Fair Isle hats are beautiful! See you soon!!!
P.S.-I'm officially hooked on that I'm doing them on two circs. I'll be bringing the socks-in-progress to all SnB's between now and Christmas since that's what everyone is getting from me. :-)
