I must have forgotten something
I've gone for a minimalist christmas look this year.
Which is perhaps why, on the Eve of Christmas Eve, I am sut on the couch in the early afternoon, taking pictures of my knitting. I cannot understand why I have time to do this.
I have begun my Magnum Opus for 2010 - the Mediterranean Lace shawl from a Gathering of Lace.
I have loved this shawl since I first laid eyes on this book in 2006. Back then I did not imagine I would ever have the skill to even contemplate it. The border alone has more stitches in it than most triangular shawls. I'm completely in love with it.
One of my favourite people who knits has finished her Shantaram Socks in the Salwaar Kameez yarn from the first yarn club parcel. She did them two at once on two circulars, and has kindly re-written the pattern for people who wish to do the same.
And they look pretty good, if I don't say so myself!
Just now I have been flicking through some recipe books and mags to decide what we'll all be eating over the Christmas break - and it suddenly occurs to me that I haven't been to the supermarket! I knew I forgot something!!!
Again, have a wonderful and safe Christmas, and I'll see you all in 2010!
