To Float or Not to Float, That is a Silly Question
Well, I finished the hat this morning, and decided not to embark on the mittens just yet. I want to finish the simple lace scarf that I'm making first and then I'll cast on another project. Here's a very bad picture of the hat.
And the obligatory hat guts. I discovered that in several places on this hat, I switched the top and bottom yarn, but it took me until I was into the dots to find a way to comfortably hold and use both colors at one time. What I finally had to do was tension one yarn with my pinky like I usually do, and the other with my ring finger. I finally had a good system going by the time I finished the hat, so the mittens should be much easier. I also switched the colors that I originally planned to use and I like the results a lot more. As we are getting much closer to Christmas, I thought that I would let you in on what my baking plans are for the next few days. Tomorrow I plan to make gingerbread cookies and Chocolate Mint Moose Cookies (which if I actually make them, I promise to photograph and share the recipe). Then late tomorrow night, I'm going to make cinnamon rolls from scratch which I have never done before, but should be great fun. Sunday morning the rolls will pop into the oven and we'll dine on yummy icing and cinnamon goodness. My backup plan in case the rolls don't come out well is homemade biscuits and gravy (one of Will's favorites). And I'm going to knit, knit, knit.
I don't often share the news of what is happening in the bunny herd as generally they are healthy and normal. Sadly some of my bunnies are sick right now and I'm fighting what appears to be pasteurella in the herd, this is resulting in the quick culling of some of my favorite animals which makes me very sad. In order to save the many though, I am having to cull a few. This does not make for a very merry Christmas and I hope to have better news by the first of the year. Keep my bunnies in your thoughts, please, and wish them healthy so that I can keep as many as possible.
