Knitting: a lot of progress, just on different items

Well, it's not news that Christmas is almost around the corner. If it is - HEY, CHRISTMAS IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. Get your knitting on :-) Christmas starts early in this country. From end of August on you can get the typical sweets in the shops. I skip these, thank you all the same, I wait until the weather is more suitable to eat those lovely cookies. You mean the weather is already suitable enough since June? You have a point, but it is still to warm, despite the storms and the rain. But, it's never too early to get your knitting groove on for Christmas. Now, have you discovered these wonderful young men from Norway called Arne and Carlos?

I have! And I have the book! I still would like the house and the chicken, but right now I settle for the kuler :-)

I've also been working on a secret project, a pattern I'm designing:
Sneak Peek

And I've knitted a funny hat for Ankh-Morpork. Actually, it's more Lancre, and a lot more jester than royal. But warm!
King of Lancre

And perfect for an IT guy to wear while making important decisions with huge impacts! There has been spinning going on as well and some teaching, but I'm mainly knitting right now!

I've always wanted to learn intarsia--maybe this might be a nice way? Checking amazon... and their chickens/hen house is amazing!Thanks for sharing!

lovely idea to knit Christmas balls - I think the uTube clip is brilliant!! I am determined to knit presents for people this year but I haven't started yet!
