I finally finished the Holden Shawlette. I’ve no idea what her fate will be. She may be stashed in my own wardrobe or end up under someone’s Christmas tree. It’s not a terribly large shawl for keeping someone’s upper body warm, but rather like a neck warmer or shoulder wrap in size.
When I originally dyed this yarn last summer I wasn’t impressed with the colors, but it knitted up beautifully without any pooling or striping. This project used the entire skein, with only a few yards of yarn to spare.
Next up on the knitting front is resuming the Brandywine shawl started last spring. Like an idiot, I didn’t mark which row I finished last. Hopefully it won’t be too hard to figure out.
Steve is loving the Christmas decorations. He and Roxie had a crazy game of ornament soccer up and down the hallway last night (with a plastic ball). This morning he was discovered curled up snoring amid the disheveled tree skirt with Christmas ornaments scattered around him. From the looks of the Dicken’s Village one of the kitties played Godzilla today too. It’s like having toddlers again.
