Six months later

I didn't plan on being gone for so long but a few days of wanting nothing to do with my knitting needles turned into weeks, then months, until it soon became evident that my love affair with knitting had gone on an indefinite hiatus. The few half-hearted attempts I made to knit resulted in a couple of beanies but once those were done, I promptly returned to ignoring the many unfinished projects sitting in my basket. But that's all in the past and I'm finally back. I've resumed work on a few things and, thanks to the Summer 2007 issue of Interweave Knits, I'm even planning on starting a new project or two. In the meantime, here's a look at one of the two FOs for this year:

Christmas gift

This is a Christmas gift for Tony, who is Zeb's sort-of-brother-in-law. I made this using the London Beanie Pattern and it's so ridiculously easy to make that it took me fewer than five hours to finish, and that's including the time taken to weave in the loose ends. Quite an achievement for a slow poke like me.
