Well not much actually !

Which is fine by me.
The 23rd of December is our wedding anniversary so to celebrate we went to Texada Island for the day.

We went to Shelter Point.

And found these little wild blueberries.

We had lunch at the Tree Frog restaurant which is a favourite of ours. As always they made us very welcome and we had a great lunch.

Here are a few more things that I did.

Carded some batts.

Spun up this skein of Babydoll/Romney plied with Angora.
I don't always give my skeins a name but this one is called Jane Eyre.

Made this pink hat which flew off to Europe.

Knitted up these legwarmers for a little gift.

And knitted this sheep hat for me, based on a pattern by Melissa Burt, using my handspun wool.

There's more, but  I'll show you another day.
Today I'm back to work.

Merry "<<_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _>>" *

* Please insert your own preferred holiday.

 Around here that would be Christmas,

 as you can see by our charlie brown tree.

There's even a rabbit under it.

And look at this lovely weaving bench Simon gave me for Christmas.

Our friend Randy made it from hemlock.

It is just the right height and feels great to sit on
so I'm feeling quite inspired to weave something !

so on that note,

 politically correct ,non denominational winterfest type holiday,
and a happy new gregorian calendar reset

from all of us at Periwinkle.
