I've been knitting up a storm lately and not reading or writing at all. That is odd for me, but Dancing to the Precipice was a very heavy book and I think I may have burnt myself out of the French Revolution for awhile.
And A Rose for the Crown was just so 'meh' that I started to search for something else to do.
So I redecorated my office/ guest room. And then because I love being in this room I started to knit with needles again. It took off from there. I finished a hat (today- pictures are still in the making) and am taking a break, for now. I'll start back up later this week I think.
for now here is the pattern I used :http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns2/accessories/MochiPlus-SwirlHat.html
its a lovely hat.
