Doing the usual New Year things...
Twenty years ago today...


According to Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase & Fable (try saying it quickly...), wool-gathering means this: 'To let one's mind wander from the matter in hand; to be absent-minded'. That sums up my not-quite-on-the-ball state of mind very neatly. Oh, and I've been getting rather sidetracked by exploring the delights of Ravelry...

It was lovely to wake up to some sunshine this morning, even though the light was weak and watery


and for good measure, here's some Saturday sea to go with the Saturday sky.


Since I last posted, I've had visits from Sue, Brigid and Liz to see the Hove Museum part of the Indigo exhibition before it closed, do a little knitting and lots of eating! Liz gave me this splendid felted cushion as one of my Christmas presents


and a skein of JitterBug in the Mardi Gras colourway.


Seriously bright and really gorgeous!


This was one of my Christmas presents to Liz and I'm really pleased with how it turned out - it's the Scotch Thistle Lace Stole from HeartStrings knitted in Schaefer Anne. The stole takes one skein of yarn and I had only a tiny bit left over...


Oh, the cushion is even more gorgeous felted than it was in its unfelted state. (I was lucky enough to "meet" it as a WIP).

The Scotch thistle pattern really pops out now the stole is blocked. Very nice.

Totally agree with Brigid - it's a lovely stole now blocked. It was fab to catch up - even if a bit Antarctic like now and again...
