So, Christmas was nice. We did some nerve-wracking driving out of snow and into ice. Well, I didn’t do the driving. I did nervous but very supportive car-knitting. See:
In my return to knitting, I’ve been doing the easily picked up and put-downable things. Something like this scarf might, however, get kind of tedious (i.e., not for those short of attention span). BUT if you pick a yarn specially made for the short attention span, well, things keep happening. This is made up of two colorways of Noro Silk Garden.
Fun things happen like this:
Followed by a section of this:
Endless fun, but I probably don’t need to tell you that. We are easily amused over here.
That is, until the yarn runs out! AIIIIIIIeeeeeeeeeeeeegh.
What have I learned in years of packing for car trips? Stop over-packing the handwork supplies already. Most of them don’t even get unpacked until they arrive back home. So, what did I do? I only took half the yarn with me. And then I ran out. With about two days left in the trip.
You can see that I survived.
I’ve been keeping busy at the sewing machine ever since I returned home. With the Amy Butler solids–what a soothing bunch of colors. With some Amy Butler prints. I’ll have to find a somewhat sunny day for pics of these. And with some of these friends:
I also decided it was the best time of the year to have a cold. Hey, why not? We’re stocked up on Zicam and Airborne, go for it. So, one of the days, I stayed in my pajamas, sewed and watched four movies. Good for what ails you.
Here’s hoping you had wonderful holidays with family and friends! Happy New Year!
