Happy New Years

IMG_3597.JPGIn our house the decorations are almost all down and my daughter’s dollhouse is stored away for the year, leaving a temporary perch for the cat.

I wish you all great success in your creative endeavors in the new year!  I have many plans, including work on this website and other social media platforms.  I have a series of hangings planned.  And I have ambition to finish up old projects. Moving my loom and materials to the new studio unearthed a few half-finished items.

Here’s one I finished in December, a nice mixed-yarn scarf I began quite some time ago, using directions from Annemor Sundbo’s book, Invisible Threads in Knitting. It is knitted with odds and ends, lengthwise on circular needles. It was a fun and easy project and became a repository of memories from trips.  I bought some yarn on a trip to Norway a few years ago, and a small skein of handspun on a trip to Vermont this summer.  Annemor told me that it works well to include yarns of various materials — like cotton, synthetics, and wool — and the differential shrinkage after washing will make a cool ruffled appearance.  I thought I was doing that, but it ended up being mostly wool, so I don’t plan to try washing it, other than gently.

It looks beautiful on Margaret
