Knitting frenzy

I've been knitting obsessively. I have 4 projects on needles. A couple of hats, such as this Felicity design.
And then there is the Star-Crossed Slouchy Beret.
I've also started a baby dress. When it comes to knitting clothes, I want to start small.
And then there are the dreaded Milo socks that will take forever to knit.
Ahh, my favorite fall/winter past time. So cozy!

I got my love to keep me warm

I got a new, warm, down Kenneth Cole coat. Very Euro. My old coat's zipper broke, and I can't wear wool coats because of my dog's tireless (and I am sure intentional) shedding. I like it. Cold Iowa winter - bring it on!
I also got myself some in-house bootie slippers. Makes me think of Scandinavian fjords.
And I started a new project - star-crossed slouchy beret. The Malabrigo yarn I am using is so soft and fun to knit with.
And I had to share with you an Awww-worthy moment. The other night, I heard my hubby singing a sweet tune, and when I sneaked in the living room, I caught this tender moment. My hubby was singing to our puppy (while playing with his ears). My heart completely melted.
