days of sloth

christmas day set the benchmark for sloth around here - there has been a whole lotta lounging, reading christmas books, moderate cooking, eating and even the odd bit of housework (just to keep the house from being subsumed by a tide of dog hair - b-the-d is shedding a small mammal's worth of hair every day)

i have however started and completed a knitted garment - if a cowl constitutes a garment.
i used ilga's beech wood pattern - very easy with enough changes of pace to keep me interested but not anxious making. i used some soft handspun wool that i bought 3 years ago in byron bay and a skein of luscious handpsun silk from artemisartemis.

Pity you can't combine the shedded dogs hair with the knitting in some way! Ever thought of taking up spinning? Glad to hear you're having such a nice Christmas x
