I still need to seven gifts, some of them I'm halfway there, but others I haven't even started. The last gift I started is going to be for one of the men in my life, but I'm not going to say which one. They might be reading this blog. It's going VERY quickly. What is shown, I spent less than 10 minutes on, but that's what happens when a project calls for bulky yarn. The downside is, the yarn I picked has 75% acrylic/25% wool. Why did I pick it? Some people don't like handwashing, and I'm afraid that will be the case with the recipient, so I'll suffer as I knit it.
I need help on deciding on a yarn color. A friend of mine is pregnant, and our church is having a baby shower for her December 8th. She's planning on using cloth diapers, loves knitting and wool, so I figured, I would knit her baby some newborn wool longies. But, she doesn't know the sex of her baby, so I want to pick a gender neutral color. I'd be perfectly fine putting both of these colors below on a girl and probably a boy, but for those who have boys would you prefer one over the other.
I checked out The Silver Chair CDs from the library yesterday, which I'll be listening to today. On Wednesdays, I'm usually in the car over two hours. I drive down to VA, which takes about 50 minutes, and then drive to prayer meeting in MD, which takes about 1 hour 10 minutes. I get tired of listening to WTOP.
What are you knitting or reading?
