With the weather being SO disgusting over the last few weeks – rain and snow and rain again and more snow and some more rain – I had quite a bit of time for reading and knitting and doing lots of other stuff.

At the moment I’m working on another red hat…. mainly to get over the traumaย  of my last red hat. (see my previous blog post ;)) Only this time I’m pretty confident, that it will turn out fine, as I already knit a white one with the same pattern for mum and I actually have a safety line this time. Here is mum’s:


White Foliage Hat

Pretty, isn’t it?

But of course I took a pic with the one mistake I made showing prominently. See if you can spot it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyway, all pattern details can be found as usual on my ravelry page: http://ravel.me/aravis83/f22

For Christmas I got the “ Little House” series by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Best Christmas present ever! The books are simply wonderful… funny, interesting, sometimes scary and incredibly hard to put down. I started reading the third book on Sunday and I’m already half way through. I simply love them… though they have one major fault, they are WAY too short. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Reading, reading, reading...

Also there are the most beautiful pictures on the books. Oh, and the descriptions are so vivid especially those about the food, that I get actually hungry just reading about it.

Apart from all that I did a lot of recording for LibriVox over Christmas. My newest solo, the one with the short stories for children is almost halfway done, though I somehow managed to delete an almost edited longish section. Grrrr!

Also I’ve started another BCing project yesterday. It’s “Heimatlos” by Johanna Spyri. It consists of two stories. I haven’t read them yet, so I can’t give any details .. but both of them start out really really sweet. ๐Ÿ˜€

Sooo, can’t think of anything more to write about….
