Left Side Finished!

I have finished the left side of my mom's vest. I hope to cast on the right side of the vest later this week. My next few days are full to the brim so I am not expecting to get to that before Friday. I am so happy to be casting on the last large piece. 
I am also going to cast on a hat for a Christmas present. This is the pattern that hurt my hand last year, but it is fairly easy and makes a great hat. I will make it a little longer than the pattern specifies because my son thought the one I made him last year was a little short. I briefly considered crocheting a hat, but I don't want to make an unknown pattern as a gift.
I thought I would also show you an update on one of my cross-stitch Christmas gifts. It is a close picture because I don't want the recipient to figure it out if they see this post. 

I am joining Ginny's Yarn Along again this week. What are you knitting/crocheting? What are you reading? Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are up to. 

As for my reading I finished Summer Breeze by Nancy Thayer before my Kindle loan ran out. I really like this book as I have all the other books that I have read by this author.  I have yet to begin reading another book. I have been spending my free time crafting and browsing my extensive stash of craft and food magazines and books.

Thanks for stopping by!
