I realized on Wednesday that tonight was the Hannukah dinner I was having with my family so I needed to get the menorah pillow all finished up. A trip to Jo-Ann for buttons and a pillow form solved that problem. I am very pleased with how the pillow turned out, and I think my grandmother was too.
I'm also still working on the Jeweled Steps socks from New Pathways, I actually just cast on for the second one tonight. I have started a pair of Fetchings for Niels' teacher in microspun. (I broke my yarn diet to buy the microspun but I'm thinking that one ball of inexpensive yarn for a specific gift project is okay. Don't mess with my delusion, please.) I'm also considering Jeanie from the new Knitty. I have five skeins of Regal Silk (the same yarn as in the scarf above) but in a blue/purple colorway. I think it would be beautiful, but I'd also have to adjust the pattern because that yarn is thicker and I have a lot less than the pattern calls for.
So there you go, I may be silent, but it doesn't mean I'm not busy!
