The big problem I have with blogging is I'd rather be knitting. But I guess it's an important record of things.

Tom and the kids are gone, so I'm totally alone (except for Kisa, of course)for the first time in years. I still don't sleep soundly, but it's much easier to get back to sleep without Tom's weird sleeping behaviour to cope with.

So pretty much knitting it happening (though yesterday was mostly planning knitting and thus little progress was achieved).

Two Christmas FOs:




That's brother Marc's Celtic Cable scarf. Fortunately, washing it took out some of the itchiness. I'll be knitting another one for his wife.




That is mother-in-law's Scaruffle from The Big Book of Yarn. That green is her favourite colour. It was an incredibly easy knit, and the halo from the mohair completely hides the mistakes. The yarn is ShibuiKnits Silk Cloud, which I bought at the Knitter's Frolic in May.

Since I finished two scarves, I decided I was allowed to start a shawl for myself. I'm tasting out knitting the feather and fan shawl from Folk Shawls in fingering weight Araucania. We'll see.
