Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading (though not at the same time!), and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

Rather than sharing what I am knitting and reading right now, I’m sharing finished gifts today.  I didn’t knit many Christmas gifts, because I don’t like to worry about finishing things up in time.  I am careful not to add anything to my plate that might make Advent and Christmas stressful.  But, I knit a pair of mittens for Silas on our trip to Georgia last month, and then it was quick and easy to knit up a little improvised hat to match.  The yarn is a single skein that I picked up at our fiber festival this year.  The only other gift I finished was a Milo vest for Job.  I meant to finish knitting a little doll for Job as well, but knitting something so small was hurting my hands.

So that’s it for me.  Did you guys knit many gifts?  Please share them!  If you have a regular Yarn Along post to share, that is welcome too.  Happy (almost) New Year!
