Thanksgiving really wiped me out because besides hosting, I was in the midst of a bad cold. I had a sore throat on Thanksgiving and the next day no voice. By Monday I had a cough and runny nose. My kids bring these colds home and they are done with them in two days. I'm on day nine! With all the coughing I have little energy for much else. But I have many orders for scapulars that need to be delivered by Christmas, so I embroider while Faith does her school work.
I did finish this little test-knit tam over the weekend though. It's called Confection Featheround, as the design on the brim looks like feathers. It's really cute and the color very original -- Knit Pick's CotLin Conch. The color is definitely more peachy/orange than pictured on their website. I thought it would be more feminine. But the pattern is cute, and when the creator publishes it, I'll let you know. The test knit period is almost up. Here's my Ravelry page for it. It's a baby size, so I'll put it in my shop -- wish I had a baby to model it!
I'm still previewing a book, so nothing new on that front. I watched a great British police series while I was knitting -- River. It's about a police detective who is investigating the murder of his partner, and he has the gift/curse of hearing and seeing "dead people." Not "dead people" like Sixth Sense -- they are not zombies -- but he sees and speaks to the people involved in his investigation. Most people think he's crazy, but it's a very entertaining crazy!
That's all for now -- pop over to Ginny's for more books and projects.
