I know I'm not the only person to do this.
But here I am, Sunday afternoon. No one at home but me and the dogs.
So....I've been thinking of Yule gifts, and browsing to finds a suitable yarn to make a jumper for my sons . The my mind wandered to the Knitting Goddess site, as Samantha bought me a set of mini skeins for my birthday. I've been knitting up a lacy cowl the pattern is Robyn by Anniken Allis, aka Yarn Addict. If you scroll down the page, it's pictured on the left, in purple, mine is part of a rainbow, as the yarn is a rainbow of mini skeins. I'm wondering if I should indulge myself and subscribe to the monthly mini skeins?
Think I'll go for a walk to think it over.
I'll post soon with recent finishes, there have been a few.

I'm very pleased with how it looks and the colour is much better in real life than in the photo. The yarn is a variegated acrylic yarn from Aldi. It is much softer than I expected and will stand up to being thrown in the washing machine, which is imperative for a baby blanket.
Well, they are from Itty Bitty Hats, again. The blue and pink ones are the same, only different colours, made in Mochi Plus yarn which is a dream to knit with. The stripey hat is called Candy Cane in the book, and I made it in red and white 100% cotton.
The blanket and two of the hats have homes in the future, and I dare say the third hat will be homed fairly soon.
