Since my sister in law has already received her Christmas gift, I think it's safe to share it with you :) I knit her a pair of Antiquity fingerless mitts by Alicia Plummer in the same yarn I used for my Driftwood shawl--Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock Mediumweight. They came out nicely and I like the subtlety of the colors against the dark gray.
We've really been enjoying all of the new books (it's refreshing to get a break from the old, tired favorites, isn't it?) Another book in our Christmas Basket is The King's Tea. (Apparently we only like books that are no longer in print :/) The king blames his tea steward for ruining his morning tea with sour milk, but learns a valuable lesson in the end. Since Luca and I have been enjoying tea time after school in recent weeks, he's really connected with the story, which is sweet.
Linking up with Ginny this week.
