We had what I consider a perfect Christmas.
I don't make tons of different dishes - usually a bird (capon, this time)
Christmas crackers which, in addition to the hat contain a small prize and a fortune. They are a highlight of every Christmas dinner for us and must be worn for the entire dinner.
It was a lovely day and the house continued to smell chicken-y as I boiled down the carcass for soup.
Ollie and I relaxed once everything was cleaned up.
I got this far on my Lehe lap blanket.
This is the view out our bedroom window today. We got our first snowfall (6") last night. Who needs a white Christmas anyway?
Since I didn't spin on Monday night, I thought I'd get in a couple of hours this morning while I was still in my jammies. It's a crappy iPhone photo but you get the idea.
I'm open for pattern suggestions.
Maybe the Two Color Crescent Shawl, or Kleio, or Dream Stripes (although I prefer a crescent shape), or Cladonia, or Vidalia Lace Shawl, or Kashtanea Lace Shawl, or Romance?
I still have lots of the plain roving to spin.
I'm also looking for yarn to knit the Corydalis shawl, a Linda Choo pattern which I saw at the Woodstock Fleece Festival in October. I need 700m of laceweight. It incorporates lace knitting, a semi-circular shape AND it's entrelac! I'm going to have one more look in my laceweight yarn stash before I make a trip to the yarn shop.
