End of year spinning & knitting

The holidays are upon us. Apparently that means that I lose track of what day of the week it is. I have been doing a bit of spinning, but only enough to almost be finished the green section of the lovely BFL I’m spinning. The bobbin is about half full, I think.

In knitting, I ended up casting on for a last minute Christmas gift for my husband. His current black ribbed hat has just about had it, and so I’ve cast on in some lovely superwash merino for another. It’s not very exciting or very easy to see when I’m knitting, but the yarn is very pleasant stuff. I’m planning on making it quite deep for a generous brim to fold up and keep his ears warm. It’s not a secret because a) he requested it and b) I’ve tried it on him as it is to make sure the fit is good.

In household news, Sam has lost his first tooth:

It’s been wiggly for a while, but it finally popped out at school which meant that he got to bring it home in a cute little tooth-shaped container. He had a visit to the dentist the next day & saved it to bring and show it off!

Merry Christmas to you all! I’ll see you on the other side of the holidays. I’m hoping to find time to take stock of the whole year before it’s over, but if that doesn’t work, then perhaps I’ll cover that at the start of January.

    Lovely spinning and what a great smile! I like to think that not knowing what day is it is normal this time of year. ;^)
