On the needles: a little girly dress with Noro striped yarn (or maybe it wants to be a jumper. Depending on how long the yarn will last – it’s life on the edge, I tell you).
The orange hat on the right has been finished since taking the picture. My boys have the same size head, and we only have one pompom hat, so obviously we needed a second one for them to fight over!
This hat is the Classic Cuffed Hat (free pattern on Ravelry, notes here), with the new-to-me tubular cast on which is great! It is a lovely knit, and the little boy is super happy with it, mostly due to the fact that the hat is orange (!) and has a pompom.
Reading: The Advent Craft and Activity Book, a wonderful collection of craft ideas, stories and recipes for every day of Advent. I especially like the little chapters on where certain advent traditions originate from, and the delicious recipes.
