a time of gifts

2016! What fantastic gifts we’ve had this year. Several bags of turf from our landlord, wool from my aunty, two giant gorgeous wooly skeins from Celia, cute tins from Ellie.. Every year I feel blessed for having such generous family and friends.


So much exciting stuff has happened since my last post! One is that we had a quick road trip to Scotland to pick up our canoe. It’s a beautiful Novacraft Pal model and it’s green! We even went on a wee adventure on lough Mask even though it was stormy and windy. I love the way one perceives landscape from water.

I finally finished several projects from Seven Skeins Club.


Winer in Russia was fabulous with lots of snow and frosty trees…

And here too, we’ve had some snow and frost…


I feel that this year will be important and exciting. I am motivated to design my own knitwear and to keep this blog running . There is so much to learn and plan though! I am currently working on SMART goals for this year and will hopefully come up with a clear plan soon!
