Sweaters for tissues
Don't feel ambitious enough to knit a whole people sized sweater? Here is a great way to use up all of those bits and pieces of self-patterning sock yarn that are just too pretty to throw away (I have a bag full). Knit up a bunch of these "Sweaters for purse sized tissue packets".
On the needles - the Simple Mistake Rib Vest from 101 Designer One-Skein Wonders. This is an IOU for my daughter. She picked out the pattern and the yarn (Galway Paint by Plymouth) before Christmas but I over-extended myself a little bit!
Also on the needles another "Fidget" (neck warmer)
I've knit a few of these but found I had given them all away and didn't have one for myself. The yarn is something unknown I found in my stash (no picture yet).
I'm reading Night Fall by Nelson Demille. It's a fictional story based on true events - the explosion of TWA Flight 800 off Long Island New York in July 1996. I haven't read a book by Nelson Demille before and I really like his style. Next on my bedside stack is our Whoduknit January book, Murder Carries a Torch by Anne George which looks like a much lighter read. And, while I knit, I'm listening James Patterson's Honeymoon.
