Hat

As a lucky coincidence today’s word is hat and guess what I happened to finish today? A hat! It’s gorgeous and I love the colors and I wish I could show you more but it’s late and I don’t have a proper camera around and it’s not for me. I think I will have to get me some more of that yarn though. #yarnpadc

Earlier this month I mentioned how I wish next year’s Christmas decorating will turn out. This picture above is Agnieszka’s tree. It’s absolutely stunning and I really want one for myself one day.

Today I got one step closer to a perfect Christmas tree. These are bought in the only open-all-year-around ornament store in Poland. I’m not sure I can wait till next Christmas to put them up though, I might have to make a test round around Easter…

Tradition

Today’s word is tradition. For quite a few years now my friend Agnieszka has hosted a get-together on Boxing day. It’s a great time, tea and cake and nice people and conversation. It’s a nice little tradition that I hope we will keep up for many, many years. This year I started a hat when I got there and when the hat was finished I figured it was time to go.

Also, look what’s blocking! My Christmas shawl is finished! Now there is only a shawl left that needs to be done before New Year’s. I am cautiously optimistic.
