Happy Saturday!! I have been looking forward to this day all week because I decided I will only work on bunny nuggets today :) they are honestly my favorite things to knit. They work up so quickly, look cute in any weight yarn, make such great little gifts, and are perfect to use up yarn ends. Some people hexipuff, I bunny nugget :)

Yes, I am ready for Christmas. Our tree has already gone up. I am not sure what possessed Scott, but last week he asked where the tree was and then set it up. We usually wait until after Thanksgiving, but honestly, I am not complaining! I love the holiday season. I love the Christmas lights and decorations. I love the music (I find myself randomly humming lines from Christmas songs...the title of this post is the one that goes through my head the most often!). I don't love the crowds of hurried, angry and tired people.

And I am more than set to start Christmas socks too:

My first purchase from Handdyed by Allie Cat and I couldn't be more in love!! The skein on the left is colorway Sea Monster and the right skein is Twas the Night of the Zombies Before Christmas (hehe)

and I had to make a new Christmas sock sack

and I might have more holiday yarn on the way... :)
(it's this and this!!)  

knit all the Christmas socks!


But first I must finish this pair:

Hermione's Everyday socks


I am about one inch from starting the toe decreases, yay! They will be my last project for Andi's Fall into Fall KAL.


Last time I posted a half finished Kindle cozy.

Pattern: Cabled Kindling by Rachel Ack
Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Tonal in Nevermore (discontinued colorway)
Needles: US 5
Modifications: I like the cables to be the same size, so I repeated the first nine rows throughout instead of knitting extra knit rows between cable crosses (per pattern).

If you knit this cozy, it will seem TEENY and you might think it will in no way fit over your device. But trust me, it will!! (these fit our Touch and Paperwhite). It is nice and snug and doesn't fall off. I knit mine (pink one) last year and it has loosened up a lot but still a cozy fit. I suppose if you blocked the cozy, it would relax also.

One last thing!! 

Eek new hair cut!!! And yes, the tree is up already! :)

A new haircut! :) I still haven't adjusted to it! Sometimes in the morning when I'm groggy, I think it's just pulled back into a bun. Haha! I really like it; I was ready for a change!


Ok, have to get back to bunny nuggets. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!! What are you working on?
