Look forward to seeing your completed Vintage Velvet.

Perhaps one day you would be willing to post on your favorite film adaptations of Shakespeare?

Have you started over reading the Aubrey/Maturin series? I'm in the midst of Laurie King's Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes series. Are you familiar with them? Seems like they may be up your alley.

Happy New Year!

I loved the Vikkel braid on the Spey Valley socks too - so clever and such a lovely finishing touch on a relatively simple pair of socks.

I am jealous about Vintage Velvet - how lovely!


Happy New Year! I really like the texture on the socks. :) I love your "annual" Twelfth Night photos. Still one of my very favorite plays...will have to watch the movie versions at some point. The color of the Touch Me is beautiful. The photo makes me want to pet it too. :)


I hope you are not having the problem I had when I worked with chenille. It kept twisting tighter and tighter until I had to stop and hold the ball up to unwind. Finally ended up putting it in a baggie with a small slot to pull the yarn out and letting it spin as I went along. I still have skeins of it left that I just look at and shudder. Yet it does feel so nice and the color is such a beautiful teal.


Loving the photos - that chenille looks just wonderful ( why has chenille fallen out of favour so much? it used to be readily available and when I was pondering a winter scarf and wanted some there was none in my usual yarn haunts, hmmmm), anyway it is gorgeous and I love that colour too (also love the socks - they look decidedly serious socks - as opposed to the light and pretties that are gorgeous but ubiquitous).


How are you? I am guessing Girl Scouts have you very busy. Do the Daisy's sell cookies?
