Christmas and into the New Year

Wow, that went quick!!                 

Christmas was almost painless.  I got the kids presents that they actually needed, eg bedding.  And didn't cook to feed 50 instead of the 14 that were actually around.  Hence I didn't over eat either.

I spun up some lovely fibre gifted to me by a wonderful friend who visited all the way from the UK, thanks Picperfic!!  I spun up a whole heap of lace weight and decided it was destined for a summer cardi.  Check out the pics below.

Also on the needles is another lace circular shawl.  No pics atm but it's almost finished.  It's made from all the fibre samples I spun up for the show back in July.

Picperfics lovely fibre, Polwarth, kid Mohair, silk.

New Years is coming quick and I hope to get more beads in the mail between now and then.  I'm planning on making more lace markers.  Very cute and dainty small markers for when you are doing the fine stuff.  Probably more in a pack too.

Have a safe New Years Eve everyone and watch this spot!!  I promise to post more frequently in the NY (it's a New Years Resolution)

The show went well.  Not as well as I would have liked but well enough... Now it's soap I am doing a lot of...Yet another old craft no...
