One hat done, another on the way

I finished a hat for my MIL. I used some worsted weight yarn that I had in my stash.
She loves it. It turns out that she has a fairly new maroon coat that I didn't know about. How is that for coincidence?

I have started a hat for my mom next. This will be another crocheted hat as that is quicker for me. I am using sport weight yarn which will go just a little slower than the last hat. I wonder if it will get any use this winter? 

I am joining Ginny for Yarn Along today. What are you knitting/crocheting? What are you reading? Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are up to.

I finished reading The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. I really love the way she spins a story. There are ins and outs and a little mystery along the way. I haven't started another book as I just don't have the time. 

Thanks for stopping by!
