My husband gave me a new knitting book (Two-Stitch Knits by. Jane Crowfoot) for Christmas. This book has some great patterns in it. I remembered on Christmas that we forgot to send a gift to our friend Roy in Colorado. So, I've been working on this rib-knit scarf from the book. I'm using my new "Options" needles from KnitPicks. They're also a Christmas gift from Mark, and they're so cool!

I've also been working on a baby sweater for my sister Erin, who is waiting to have a baby any minute. I started on a very practical machine-washable sweater, but I couldn't get some wool-cotton from my stash out of my mind. It's left over from a sweater my mom made me in the 80s! I had a limited amount, but I finally decided to use two colors and make it work. The pattern is the "Dumb Baby Sweater" from the book "Knitting in Plain English" by Maggie Righetti.

So, I had just enough yarn (I hoped) to make a little bunny rabbit to match the sweater. I'm still working on it, but here are the parts. This is the baby bunny from Fiona McTague's "Knitting for Babies and Toddlers".
