falalalala lalalala

tis the season, and i'm so happy all the packages were mailed last week, hopefully everything has arrived by now.

a couple of photos. long lost god-daughter, if you are reading, avert your eyes!
sivia harding faroese shawl, knitpicks yarn. a quick knit, but fun.

and the morehouse merino bellini scarf, angela helped me decide on a color. i bought 2 kits at rhinebeck, one dusty lavender and olive, the other fuschia and violet. the scarf is for an older japanese friend, and angela said the first colorway might not work well with an asian complexion. this was a super fast knit, very simple, very chic, just like my friend, reiko. this woman comes to basket class in silk and linen shirt and pants, and leaves looking as lovely as she came. i on the other hand am covered with sawdust.
reiko takes each basket piece home and sands them by hand, she says the wood sings to her. i love her.

haven't figured out how to crop photos with the new laptop yet.

here is tom. i am addicted to fiber, he is addicted to online backgammon.

The Faroese is gorgeous (both are, actually, but I'm really partial to Faroese shawls). Sounds like your holiday knitting is more than under scontrol.
