- Booties for a baby (no not mine!) Find the tutorial here. Thanks to Soulemama for the inspiration.
- Cubes for my niece. Who knew cubes were so easy? These cubes were born from curtains, an old sweater, a thrifted table cloth and thrifted corduroy. The smallest one has a jingle bell that, well, jingles.
- A skull cap. This was intended for my son. Only it is fair isle. And me, I should know, what ever I knit in fair isle ends up smaller than planned. And so it seems this one was knit for a for a toddler. Fortunately I know a toddler with a punk rock father. All is well. Tutorial here.
- Another hat. Again smaller than intended though not knit by me. This one was sewn from a sweater. My niece's head ought to be nice and warm this winter.
And on a completely different note ... every year I put together a holiday DVD. Essentially it is a slide show with accompanying music. This is the time of year I begin to contemplate my musical selection.
On my list of potentials are:
"I don't know" by Lisa Hannigan
"New Soul" by Yael Naim
Any suggestions? I'm always on the lookout for new music and would LOVE to hear your ideas!
