Look - it's a cuff!
So far, that is what I have done on the pair of fingerless mitts for The Tim that started out possibly being for his birthday (which is this Saturday), but are now going to be a Christmas gift. Paired with my bag from Evertotes that celebrates Canada's 150th anniversary, it actually looks quite festive!
I have no doubts that I will have the project completed for a Christmas gift, it's just that I haven't spent time working on it over the last week, since I was determined to finish the socks in the previous post. The biggest problem is that I would prefer not to work on them when he is around, but that might not work out. I'll just tell him they are a gift, he doesn't need to know they are for him!
Today is Unraveled Wednesday, so in addition to my knitting, I should tell you what I'm reading. On my way to work this morning, I returned the copy of The Resurrection of Joan Ashby that I had borrowed to the library. It's a no-finish for me, as I just couldn't get into it and didn't care about Joan Ashby enough to make myself continue. It was a bit disappointing, because I had read reviews that made it sound really interesting. Oh well.
I'm also reading Buried, about a series of murders of librarians (!) that a true-crime author decides to investigate. So far, I'm finding it interesting because, come on, WHO WOULD MURDER A LIBRARIAN??? ;-) Having said that, even if I decide I don't like it as it goes on, I'm not out anything, since it was an e-book freebie for my Nook.
What are you up to reading and knitting wise? Inquiring minds want to know!
