ringing in the new year

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's celebration. We celebrated with great fanfare here at Chez Light Wading. The Best Roommate Ever was feeling poorly, so she went to bed crazy-early. I watched Much Ado About Nothing (again), and finished seaming the Lizard Ridge!

Alex models the blanket, deigning to slit open one eye for the camera

I also began another pair of socks, modeled by my new friend Malcom.

Those of you who have seen Mirrormask will recognize Malcolm as a close cousin of the monkeybirds. OK, well, maybe not that close, but that's who he reminds me of.

Happy New Year!

Holy Cow, what a great shot of your blankie and kitty. That needs to be a note card!

oh your blanket looks lush.

If that look on Alex's fuzzy little face doesn't say "MINE!!", I don't know what does. I second the notecard idea.

I'll third the notecard idea. That is such a great picture, and your lizard ridge looks wonderful. Will Alex ever let you use it?

Jane said...

Oh my goodness, that's totally FABULOUS!! Congratulations on a beautiful finish.
