I've been busy with gift knitting and have taken a hiatus from my regularly scheduled knitting. Last night I finished knitting the Lace scarf from the Anny Blatt starblitz. I think I'm going to crochet a loopy band of scallops along the ends, using the 2.5 yards of yarn I have left and string some freshwater pearls on the yarn, so that the scallops are beaded. This one's for Jacquie. I want to have it in the mail on Wednesday. In the lower corner of the pic you can barely see the next cabled incarnation of that Berger du Nord silkid. It is a Saxon braid bounded by twisting cables, v pretty. I started that one last night after binding off the lace.
Oh, and we have a tree! And what a Tree it is. I'm wreathed with smiles.
