Rabbit Season Duck Season

I actually finished stuff!!  Of course the end of month Nerdopolis deadline helps :)  These socks were adapted by me to anklets from the pattern HISS available on Ravelry, with Rabbit Season Duck Season Doppelganger sock yarn set from Gnome Acres.

PS love the new foot I got a couple months ago!

Rugged Knits

Rugged Knits: 24 Practical Projects for Everyday LivingRugged Knits: 24 Practical Projects for Everyday Living by Andrea  Rangel

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm going to buy this book. (That means it's really like 9 stars but Goodreads only goes up to 5) Patterns are great patterns to wear every day. All my cables and lace are great, but not necessarily able to survive my everyday life. Here's what I've queued up already:

Bright River Cowl Neck Sweater
Wheat Creek Vest
Elderberry Road Cardigan
Wrap Up Hoodie
Blackberry Grove Cowl
Surging River Wrap
Weathered Mountain Hat
Blueberry Paws Mitts
Braided Brook Pullover

Cattastic Crafts

Cattastic Crafts: DIY Project for Cats and Cat PeopleCattastic Crafts: DIY Project for Cats and Cat People by Mariko  Ishikawa

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cute book, I adore some of the projects, but other than the sock mice, nothing to give me an idea for my catphew's Christmas present.
