Let's start with a true confession.
I need to stop holiday shopping for myself. What's that about? I apparently am obsessed with kitchenware. My new desire:
All Clad, Ceramic Baking Rectangle with ... serving trivet. I used Mrs. B's this weekend at the soccer team brunch and I was a new shade of green, ha! I haven't bought it, yet.
I finished A Red Herring without Mustard and I have to say, I'm looking forward to reading the next Flavia de Luce mystery, however I'm hoarding a few holiday themed mysteries, well for the holidays!
Next though on the reading list is Wonder. A multiple narrator story about being different (the boy has a facial deformity). The Man Friend and The Kid are waiting for me to finish it, since I bought and recommended they all read it before I did. I will attempt to provide a family review by the end of the month.
The Clapotis is the only thing I can knit right now. I'm sort of obsessed with it when I have time to rub two sticks together. It's times like these where you really just have to go with the mojo, not worry about "those other things" you've been meaning to knit ...
Which reminds me, I'm going to knit our 5th grade teacher a Misti Chunky alpaca Gaptastic cowl. I will have it done by the end of term. I swears it!!
Speaking of Cowls have you seen Lolly Knit's lovely Hunger Games: Catching Fire inspired Katniss Cowl? I think it's beautiful and would make a great gift, as well.
Ha! While I went to link to Lolly Knits, I see she's offering up a customized cowl for a shout out. However I just want to send her some props, and I will knit it myself and support her designs if I can get to it this winter. But enter her giveaway for a handmade gift for you or a pal!
Presentation / project review after lunch today. I wish I was going in to talk about knitting my Clapotis ;)
