With all the snow that came down on Christmas Day, my mom and brother and his family couldn't make it to our house for Christmas dinner. So we put it all off for a week and had Christmas on New Year's Eve.
I was so excited about the Clapotis I had made for my mother, (Ravel linked) that I was a little disappointed at having to wait (well, heck I'd had it finished and blocked a week before Christmas!) but it was well worth it. She wrapped it around her shoulders and didn't take it off all evening, declaring it "perfect and gorgeous" as only a mother can. Christmas knitting accomplished!
Now I want to make one for myself. But I am going to hold off buying anything for a bit. You see, I spent last Saturday pulling out every skein of yarn I own. But more on that in my next post. Which should be called, "Treasure Untroved."
When the yarn starts to get a mind of its own, then it's time to knit the stash.
Welcome to my blog. My name is Elizabeth, and I've been knitting off and on since I was seven. I come from a long line of knitters, crocheters and quilters and love anything to do with fiber. Since I live in a house filled with male DNA, this is where I get to share my projects and notions.
