My cutie pie nephew turned 1 not that long ago and I knitted him a Tilden Hat. It is a Jared Flood pattern. It is such a nice pattern and knits up much quicker than I had thought. I used some alpaca yarn I had in my stash for it. I knitted it on US 3 needles.
I have a feeling my nephew will enjoy wearing it more next Fall when it is a bit cooler out.
For reading I am still into the Outlander Series. I've been reading "A Breath of Snow & Ashes". I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE these books. Just in case I haven't said it before :) I like to compare these books to the movie Titanic. The books are based on fictional people, but in a real historical setting. I have learned so much about history. Just like the movie Titanic I learned a lot about the actual Titanic and enjoyed the ride with the characters. Outlanter takes you through Scotland, France, America and so many more places. It is fascinating I tell you!
