That's Claudia Handpaint fingering in the colorway Cabin Fever which I bought at NoSoKnit last month.
I also managed to finish these socks tonight:
Yup. One of the most boring things I've ever knit, and one that I'm probably the happiest to have completed, partly for that obvious reason. But partly because, I do have need of those plain dark socks for the times when I have to dress conservatively. I've become terribly spoiled and only want handknits on my feet regardless of the occasion, so Plain Gray Socks had to be made. As an aside, if you are searching for plain gray yarn this might be a serious contender: Joann Sensations Bamboo Ewe, a lovely blend of bamboo and wool, and soft as all get out. I won't ever knit it on my 1.25 bamboo needles again, of that I can guarantee. Perhaps I'll pick the Harmony's next time? Anyway, they're finally done...I started them on Halloween!
So you can now see the top of my desk, I've finished a project that took the better part of two months to complete, and have been working on another that has taken a terribly long time to complete (and isn't near completion either, but I'm making progress). I even spent a bit tossing crinkle balls to The Tonk and chatting with my next door neighbor!
Tomorrow it's back to work, but at least it's a short week. I hope you've had a lovely holiday as I have and Santa was good to you. I enjoyed the first of four Cary Grant movies my daughter gave me, now that I have a working DVD player and television! I don't believe I've ever seen An Affair to Remember but I enjoyed it and made much progress on my sis-in-law's Landscape Shawl. I'll share that with you later this week!
