Anyway...the virus and accompanying secondary infections are abating with the help of round two of antibiotics and lots of kefir with 10 active strains of probiotics. Both recommended by the new doctor that I switched to the day after Christmas. Based on the kefir recommendation alone, I like her a lot!
So here are the last finished objects for 2012:
Fire Engine Red prayer shawlette for my friend, Priscilla.
It is knit from Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo since wool was out of the question.
It's the third time I've knit that pattern. Details are at the Ravelry link.
This Willow Cowl was knit for me from a Malabrigo sock yarn (another Ravlery Link).
It's okay, not great, mostly I'm not a fan of the yarn, despite the hype it gets online.
It does keep one warm, but I couldn't help but feel a bit like Mrs. Tishall on Doc Martin while wearing it:
Next up: Spindling
This is a pile of spindle spun and plied cashmere from 2012.
Over the years I've collected a number of little baggies of cashmere which I've been spinning on various of my spindles.
The latest skein is the one on the right side of the top of the pile in the photo above.
The current batch of cashmere is on this Jenkins Aegean spindle which I posted about here.
I've spun a lot with this spindle this year and really love it.
No New Years Resolutions to share, just a big, long "To Do" list which I may or may not share later.
I do want to wish each of you a very happy New Year, filled with time and materials for all the fiber pursuits your heart desires.
