I have been finishing projects like a mad person! Healing to a point where I’ve been able to knit again has been like a weight lifting, so I thought I’d share one of the bigger projects with you.
Another one of my circular lace shawls. You know how I love them! Would you like to know more?
I finally finished my fox stole!
Isn’t it wonderful?!? So I’ve moved on to a new circular shawl. Apparently all is not right with the world unless I’m working on a giant piece of lace. Would you like to know more?
I began Boxing Day 2011.
It took 1700m of yarn.
It has been worked on in 3 countries (New Zealand, Australia, and Nederlands).
I have finally finished (except for weaving in the ends).
Here is the Evenstar in Midnight Blue. (size EU40 shoe for scale)
And here are some close ups.
End of an era. *heaves a sigh of relief*
Going away for a week can really make you feel better about the world. You know?
In a city that won’t soon forget the last year and a half,
we sat and had coffee next to this little guy after experiencing a 5.8, and then an hour later a 6.0.
For giftmas we were safe, and had family around us. Highlight of my day was holding the 4month old and being the only one who could get him to go to sleep.
By Boxing Day we were on roads surrounded by rolling hills,
dotted with sheep and flowers.
Our aim was for a small French village.
Which we found.
I started a new circular shawl,
we went out on the boat,
there was a dolphin hunt,
fresh blue cod for lunch,
and perfect sunsets.
I hope your holidays are full of family and fun, and that the coming year is easier than the last one.
Happy New Years Eve everyone!
