hats off the needles
Funny thing is that I don't really wear hats (althought I did knit one that I am keeping for myself just in case I find myself in need of a hat).
Hat knitting has really helped me improve my knitting skills. I have done simple patterns, cables, left and right increases, figured out a variety of abrreviations, conquered lace patterns, and learned how to read charts. We have a knitting group at church. Our first project for 2016 will be hats for kids in Syria.
I am still reading About Grace by Anthony Doerr and loving it. I am listening to My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry by the author of A Man Called Ove which I am not quite loving.
Now that I have declutter my knitting I think it is time to tackle my bookcases and maybe make a list of books to read in 2016.
Better pop over to Ginny's to discover some new titles!
