I hope you all had a lovely Hallowtide (Halloween, All Saints' Day, All Souls' Day)! I got a lot of knitting done and I'm now working on the button/button hole bands for Lila's Tallulah cardigan. It's really amazing what I can accomplish when I set my mind to it and have no real weekend plans.
My hope is that by the end of the week I can get Lila's sweater washed and blocked and then sew the buttons onto both of the cardigans. Then I can get them wrapped and tuck them away until Hanukkah. If I get them done this weekend you'll get a FO post sometime early next week.
I'm not sure which project I want to start next - a hat and glove set for dear Beth, the hats I'm making for Victoria, or fingerless gloves/wrist warmers for my co-worker? I'm thinking the hats for Victoria because I actually have the patterns picked out and will have money for yarn soon. Realistically I plan to make just one hate initially and then get all my other Christmas knitting done before I try to make her more hats. We'll see. It's an excuse to go buy some new yarn!
I've been at loose-ends reading-wise lately. I've actually been reading a lot of fanfiction because I couldn't decide which book to tackle next (is it bad that I'm 25 and still turn to Harry Potter fanfic when I'm bored? I've been in a really nostalgic mood lately...). Of course my roommate wisely suggested that I just pick something from my unfinished/TBR shelf and so I'm back into The Meaning of Night. I started reading it a couple years ago but never finished it for some reason. I'm back at it, though!
Also, I'm participating in the Books & Cupcakes November Book Photo Challenge via Instagram. Here's a collage of my first few entries and the link to my Insta is below. It's been pretty fun so far, even if it's only Day 3, hehe. (You can follow my Instagram HERE.)
Day 1: Currently Reading; Day 2: Reading Playlist; Day 3: Favorite Novella(s)
That's it for me today. You can also find notes and detailed specs on this project on my Ravelry Page. For more of what I'm reading, find me on Goodreads. What have you been reading and knitting lately? Let me know in comments and then head over to Ginny's to see what everyone else is up to!
