New Year’s Eve

2017 is drawing to a close and not a moment too soon. Not the best of years, but things could always be worse, right?

Loki is getting in some extra naps in preparation for staying up to ring in the new year.

I finished my Corrugated Shawl on Christmas Eve. Here it is, spread out full length.

(The only reason I was able to take that photo without feline intervention was because of Loki’s accelerated napping schedule today.)

A close-up:

And being modeled by Gwendolyn:

Happy New Year to you all! See you on the other side!

  5. It turned out lovely – has a gansey sort of look to it.
