Don't worry, I'm here. Thank you to everyone who sent their condolences about Nacho Kitty. I really appreciate all your kind words!
What have I been doing, since I clearly haven't been blogging? Well, here's one thing:
Terrible picture, but anyway. It's the Peace Street Hat from the Holidays Gifts 2011 issue of Interweave Knits. Although you can't really tell from this photo, the hat has a hint of sparkle. I held one strand of black alpaca together with a strand of metallic yarn (also black) to create this subtle shimmery effect. The buttons are some pretty glass gems from Blue Moon Buttons. This is my new go-to hat for the holiday season.
Let's see, what else? I'm trying really hard not to catch a cold. Yesterday I felt yucky all day, but last night I had a hot toddy and then a lot of sleep and I'm feeling much better this morning. I'll be eating tangerines all day to load up on vitamin C and ward off any cold germs (not to mention scurvy--man, there's nothing like a pesky case of scurvy to ruin your Christmas vacation).
I hope you all are doing great and enjoying the holidays!
