Knitting: I'm almost finished with a birthday hat for the little guy using leftover yarn. I'm not sure exactly how it will look in the end -- there may be a third color in there to finish it off. The final ingredient to make it complete would be some cold and snow.
Reading: On the way back to the library is Knit Green, a book about eco-friendly knitting choices with some patterns thrown in. I skimmed it very quickly, but I definitely walked away with some helpful tidbits. I really didn't know that cotton has been bred to grow in colors other than white. It also grows in green, red, and several shades of brown. How did I not know this?
Linking up with Ginny at Small Things.
