The hat is done, now what?

I finished Emma's hat!  I was so happy to finish it!  And honestly, I think it looks adorable on her.  Of course, I don't have a picture of her wearing the hat...she isn't one for posing for pictures...and I figured posting a blurry one of her running away from me wouldn't really work out too well.  So here it is, in all its glory!


Now, I am not sure what to knit next.  I started a skinny scarf for myself.  I thought it might be something nice to have, but I'm not so sure about the color, which is a light purple, for me.  I think it would fit my mom better, so she might get it for her birthday...in July :-)

Reading, well I am hoping this year to read 100 books.  I think that I can probably do this, especially if I read a lot of fiction.  Fiction books seem to be easy for me to get through.  Of course, I have a list of non-fiction and research type books that I want to get through, so we will see how far I get!

I am currently reading A Home in Drayton Valley, which has been really sad.  I will have a review on Saturday for it, once I am finished.  It is a good book, but when a book starts out sad, it is harder for me to get through it!

The other book that I am reading is Blood Like Poison: For the Love of a Vampire.  I got this free for the kindle (I actually have a nook, but I have a kindle app on my computer and phone as well), and it is still free if you want a new e-book to read!  It reminds me a bit of Twilight, but I am only about 20 pages in.  I think it will be enjoyable though, I like easy vampire reading!

Joining in at the yarn along today.

  1. I love your goal of reading a 100 books in a year, that's fantastic. I have done 52 books, a book a week, but that is a close as I have come.

  6. I'm reading The Illuminator . I've been reading it a while - I got distracted by 2 library books I'd been holding for that came in. So I read those first. Now I have returned to the Renaissance. I don't normally do that, LOL.

    Love the hat!
