...with Ginny at Small Things.
"She knits her way through the day."
"Just one more round," she says.
I am knitting this child's hoodie for Doug's nephew Nick. It's the first official Christmas knit. The yarn is Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in Jalapeno. I'm going to make a stripe or two across the middle in Silver Sage. I admit I am a little disappointed in the yarn because it is very lightweight for worsted weight yarn. It must be the added acrylic because Faith's in 100% cotton was much heavier. The nice thing is it will be more of a usable indoor sweater than an outdoor hoodie (trying not to be too disappointed).
My read is not pictured. It's next to my bed where I fight sleep each night to get a couple more pages read. Secrets of Eden by Chris Bohjalian (it's not at all boring, I just need to get to bed earlier).
