Small bits

Knitting:
The last of my handmade presents were handed over...
A hat for my friend, Timea.
She liked my rusty colored beret, so I got one more ball of the yarn, and knitted an other Urchin for her:

Mod: in order to have the hat a bit more slouchy I added a few stitches between the short ro shaping.

Spinning:
I loved the result of the 300 yards of handspun, I thought once again I might try to spin something for a laceshawl. A regular sized this time.
My favourite merino silk mix. Trying to spin it into laceweight. I don't know if I should tell you or not who sold the fiber, because as lovely as it is the seller charged me double for the shipping she said before it would cost, and the two ball is slightly different... the blue is the same, but one had a lot more white in it. Thank god I spin the two separately and will ply them toogether. Hopefully that will even out the difference.

Baking:
Panettone... my standard addition to my Christmas present. It is the combination of two recepie I found in an old Italian cookbook from Sunset books, Pan D'oro di Verona, and Panettone.
