I knit up a few hearts. A quick little project, simple and sweet. 
I am using yarn scraps. 
Just a few to add to my christmas tree this year when I put it up.
Is it too early yet? I think not. It will go up this weekend. Not like its much work to do. 
Its only about 3 feet tall. 
I'm plugging away on some of my current wips. I knit a little here and there on each of my projects.
I couldn't resist buying some of this beautiful yarn. I really love an 80/10/10 blend.
Its a beautiful light grey called Sea Salt.  Its a lovely soft color and soft yarn. 
It will be this shawl.
Finished is my Margin shawl. It was a test knit for Karen.
She has some lovely patterns, so I feel lucky to have been able to test knit for her.
Its a very simple pattern with contrasting color. The blue was originally for my color affection shawl, but I frogged it after I decided I didn't like my color choices. 
I'm going to put that pattern on the shelf for now, until I can decide on some colors that I want to knit that much garter with. 
I also finished my second Whispering Pines shawl
Why did I knit a second one, well I really like the first one but my mom liked it as well and she took it back to Canada with her after her visit. 
I really liked using the new fingering yarn by O-wool. 
The color is called Barn Owl. It was perfect for this pattern. 
 I have been listening and reading a lot of poetry in the last couple weeks. 
I have this audiobook in my queue right now, I loved the Robert Burns reading.
You'll recognize most of the voices doing the reading.  Some of my favorite poems in this list.
