I Was Good This Year!

First up... a new ipod! Finally! My current [2nd generation] ipod has gone through many mutations. If your ipod dies for real reasons [not "I dropped it in a puddle while drunk on the LES"], you can submit a request to apple and get a new free ipod [of the same model, though]. I've been doing that for 4 years. On my fourth one, I'm tired of doing this so I got a new ipod!

Next up... notions! Lovely brother and sis-in-law got me a box o'love. My Stash Enhancement 07!

And the grand finale... YARN! First up, my first installment of Cascade 220 in great burgundy-pink. I've never knit with it... what should I?

Next up... sock yarn. Sock yarn #1 is the envy of all sock yarns... Koigu. Finally, koigu for ME! And what an eclectic color! It'll probably look just as good in stockinette as in a pattern so... first toe-up socks!

And last, but certainly not least, is another yummy addition to my Araucania yarn that I got in Rhinebeck. This is my favorite. Fun socks or maybe a neck cozy or a bandana.

And my FOs made a great hit on Christmas morning. On top of that, family friends' kids got knit kits for Christmas so I became the teacher for the day. Start 'em young! And for the climax of our post - my new project - my Just Like a Peasant Cap! Now, it calls for double-stranding but my head is never THAT warm.... hmm...

What wonderful presents. A foliage hat would be wonderful with that yarn, and you wouldn't even need to use a full skein. Happy holidays!!!
