Happy New Year!
The birthday is over but not forgotten. Below is a gift that came in yesterday's mail:
It's ~10 oz. of natural colored Polwarth pencil roving from my shepherd friend, Carole (blogless), who lives in the thumb portion of Michigan. My wheels have been quiet lately, but this may be Just the thing to jump start my spinning in '08. I'm thinking gloves and maybe a scarf. I wore out one pair of my handknit gloves last year and haven't replaced them yet.
This is what arrived in SE Michigan with the New Year:
It took dh most of the day to get us dug out with his trusty snow blower.
At I type, the New Year's Pork and Sauerkraut is in the oven. Both dh and I are from Pa. from where this traditions hails. Click on the link to learn more. There's still carrot cake left over from the birthday, and perhaps a few ounces of dessert port to finish off this first day of the year.
Wishing each of you all the very best for 2008. Happy New Year!
