Newly Addicted to Earl Grey Tea

I finished the Golden Goblin. I think it's safe to say it's one of the most beautiful things I've knit. Thanks to Katy for the yarn.
I knit on slightly larger needles and didn't add any tiers to Citron. It ended up being 40 inches long and 18 deep which is perfect. Citron is the perfect pattern. It is very mindless but requires enough concentration to make you feel engaged. I'll probably knit this again.

My latest cast on (since the disaster of the yoga socks) is for a scrappy lengthwise scarf. For a 340 stitch row it's coming along very quickly. Here's a photo of the swatch to show the design.
I've already finished four rows so it's coming along nicely. Despite my swatch it seems a little short so I may knit it very wide and turn it into a runner for my coffee table.

Here's my new and improved living room layout. I really like it and it feels much more 'home' than it ever did before. I love curling up in the corner next to all my books and just read or knit. It's very relaxing.

Rainbow Farts fingerless mitts for a co-worker who plays soccer in this cold.
I got the yarn I ordered on December 31st in a blind panic. I needed the yarn for a cowichan sweater and 3bf wasn't open so I logged onto an online yarn company and quickly picked out my colours and pressed 'submit'. I thought I was ordering two creams and one brown.

Nope. Guess I should pay a little bit more attention next time. Oh well, we'll make this work.
And lastly, I knit a mini santa hat.
Lala doesn't want to wear it.
She wants to destroy it.
