Slower than molasses in January kind of refers to me these days. I have startitis, and good intentions, but that's about it. One day is warmer here, then the next is in the deep freeze again. My chair is surrounded by stuff I've started, even a pair of what I call "pepto & purple" SOCKS! Lovely soft yarn, but not much energy to work on them. A kid quilt is started, and two blocks made of twelve. You guessed it...that is sitting and waiting, too. Also a Vintage Afghan...no where near done. (I'm starting a pattern here?) Okay, I should take a picture of something for the blog...maybe I'll do that later, too. I enjoy reading everyone else's blogs, so sorry I can't be more interesting on my own. See ya....later.

With the Holidays over, I have decided to work on some hat and scarf sets with my looms. The photo seems to have come out quite dark, but maybe you can get the idea what they look like. Click on the photo again, and it will be larger! For the hat, I used a Knifty Knitter adult purple hat loom. For the scarf I am using the decoraccentsinc.com six inch scarf loom. The yarn is Lion Brand "tweed stripes", one strand for the scarf, and one strand of LB and one strand plain brown for the hat (two total). I have several balls of yarn that I want to make up like this...until the notion strikes me to work on something else. It has been terribly cold here this week, and I don't do well in the cold anymore. Sarah at myfavoritesheep.blogspot.com is hosting a mitten knitalong on Ravelry. I was very tempted to join in, but just knitted some Aran mittens recently (pattern is free from www.aranknits.com) and didn't feel like starting another pair right now. Until later... Happy New Year!!
