What's on your needles today?
Reading: I've picked up The Name of the Wind again. It's been put aside for a while. Not sure why, because I really like the story. So I will finish it before I start a new book.
"Told in Kvothe's own voice, this is the tale of the magically gifted young man who grows to be the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen. The intimate narrative of his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-ridden city, his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, and his life as a fugitive after the murder of a king form a gripping coming-of-age story unrivaled in recent literature. A high-action story written with a poet's hand, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that will transport readers into the body and mind of a wizard."
Knitting: I am knitting most of the christmas gifts this year and I think there will be lots of mittens because they are both fun and fast to knit. I'm almost finished with my second pair :)
Speaking of knitting. I posted the two fox hats I made last week on facebook, and I was asked if I could knit two for a boy and a girl. So I did. The colours are a bit more darker blue and pink in real life. The light is getting weird as the sun is getting lower.

The winter is still here. No more snow has come, but it's cold.
It's as low as -10 C some mornings and as the sun is low and it takes some time before she comes around the mountain, it looks like everythig is covered in diamonds.
So pretty and so hard to capture in a photo...
