what are you doing new year's, new year's eve

basking in projects done! the christmas hat for my sister.... lovely! it's from knitty winter 2007~three tams. yarn is: mc~ jo sharp silkwood tweed, cc~ noro kureyon, both from the stash. i think i acquired them from a close-out bin. worked in the round with a long-tail cast on. you tube saved my butt. i'm using this cast-on all the time now. it is easy, looks great and is a nice thing to have in that bag of tricks!

eldest child has her felted slippers. {she has been waiting since the spring for these} i started and realized that i was not going to have enough yarn. a quick call to lys, they were out. as i pondered my choices i reached for a long shot and called amy the fiber goddess. didn't she have an extra skein of pumpkin?
lesson learned...... you can never have enough tucked into that stash!

woodland nymph fiber, spun, awrapaho plied, drying. amazing color changes. it was an absolute dream to spin and i'm needing to do more. it is a wool/alpaca blend from sandy long. it will be the final piece of cc's holiday gift.

now to enjoy these last hours of 2008
