I am crawling out of hibernation to say a quick 'Hello' - have tired unsuccessfully to ward off the nasty flu that's been going around but given that it's been the coldest winter for 30 years it was some what inevitable. So 2009 has started in a spate of sniffles and a mountain of soggy tissues - nice eh? But it's been great to have had such a peaceful break where all anxieties and worries were banished over the yule-tide and for once there was no need to fret about the phone not ringing. Will post a review of 2008 soon but I'm happy to report that amidst the frantic csstingons thus far (4 on the last count!) we already have our first FO for the year.
A heavenly collar knitted in double-seed stitch using 2 beautiful yarns - Shilasdair Luxury DK (Lambswool, Cashmere, Angora) & Windy Valley Muskox (Extrafine Merino, Qiviut, Silk). Despite my cold, it's a lovely kick-off to the New Year with such a beautiful item. Roll-on 2009!!
