Merry Christmas!

Yet another belated Merry Christmas!

December is always busy for me at work. Then, when I finally get to the holidays I'm too tired to even get a post together, but - finally - here I am.

We had a lovely Christmas. I thought all the gifts went down well, and I got some lovely things.

I've been catching up with some knitting:

A Gaptastic cowl for me in Twilley's Freedom Wool.

And one for J's girlfriend, J, in Merino, Alpaca and silk.

 Here I am wearing mine. It's very warm.

 I finally found a sweater that was a good match for the King Cole baby alpaca I bought on impulse in the summer. I have started three different sweaters/cardigans with this and not felt the love. This is Margot, and I really like it. I wondered if it might be a little short, but it's intended for wearing with skirts and to come just below the waist. So it works well.

I started a scarf for me. It's Hitchhiker and I'm making it in Sanguine Gryphon Bugga. The colour is a lovely mix of coppers, blues, greys and greens. It feels wonderful.

I have also picked up work on my long-languishing Fiddlehead Mittens. More of them to come later.
