The Big R

Oh my gosh, I got my Ravelry invite today. I'm in. I haven't had time to look around, will do that later.

I'm still working on the hat I'm making my mom for Christmas. It's now 6 1/2 inches, 3 1/2 inches more to go before I can decrease. I'm making pretty good progress on this thing. It's pretty mindless knitting, knit a row, purl a row. Good for taking to Tuesday knit night as I don't have to totally concentrate and can chat with the girls without messing up.

I finally have enough needles so I can start the mittens I've been wanting to make. I needed a set of size 7 dpns and I finally got them, at Joann's with my 40 percent off coupon. Hopefully I can get to them soon. Tomorrow I'm going for a nice long drive with my cousin to a cider mill two hours away. We're just as excited as little kids about this, lol! The rain (and tornadoes, yikes!) will be out of here by then. We can enjoy the colorful trees too.
