quick update to the end of 2010

Hi, Christmas was good, quiet with the day itself being spent with family and Boxing day with our niece and nephew.

Tanya has decided that she would like to learn to knit and also had my Traveling woman shawl as an additional Christmas present.

Hand spun and dyed merino

I finished the Summer Flies shawl

Handspun Shetland

and Petes shawl (designed by Pete, not knitted for Pete)

handspun shetland and merino

Unfortunately our plans to visit friends were cut short when Ian came down with the same virus that I have been fighting for the last few weeks so I joined a friend for a spinning session instead.

Work was hectic for the last few days so New Years Eve was seen in quietly with a bottle of wine.

I am going to try and blog more frequently in 2011, hopefully I will be able to organise myself better between my day job, the shop and my other interests.....fingers crossed. I have a long list of things that I want to do so will try and keep you updated:-)

I hope you have all enjoyed the Holidays and wish you a very Happy New Year.
