A quick peek

Posted by on Friday, December 19th, 2008

As I mentioned, I made some socks for me;


And I made some socks for Scott (which are much bigger than mine, despite appearances,  and also have little clothes-pin dents, which please and annoy me by turns) ; 


And I received a gorgeous clapotis Ruadhan made for my birthday, and which I cannot stop wearing;


And a beautiful scarf Purlewe made with yarn from Martha.


I feel so fortunate to have knitting friends who are so kind to me.   We knitters really love to receive hand-knits, though I don’t think it happens that often.  It should.  It is a wonderful thing. 

Scott likes this pair of socks, which is a relief because the first pair I made him were in a sock-yarn that did not pass muster.  These are a merino silk blend, and thus soft and warm and itch-free. 

I’m still working away on a couple of patterns, so my current knitting is under wraps.  Some quilting time has passed rather well, which I’ll try to show you soon.  I also keep making those blasted bags, but need to really knuckle down and find a better way to photograph them for Etsy.  The winter sun isn’t visiting me often, and my  studio is always too dark, and I can’t very well drive to Mathom’s End to borrow Phalen’s studio every time I make a few bags to sell. 

Take note of the Winter Solstice this weekend, friends.  We’re about to start getting more daylight again, which most of us need.

    This is the first year in a long time that I remember being comfortable with the amount of light. I think it’s because I’ve been able to pay attention when the dawn creeps, and am driving through the sunset.
    That, and the sunsets have been incredible. Worth the price of admission, certainly.

    I was up for the dawn this am, driving der kinder to the airport. It’s so strange to actually see sunrise around these parts.

    Lovely socks and scarves, all to keep you warmer! 🙂

    Sure you can! Mathom’s End isn’t that far. Come early, come often!
