Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Do you understand my wish for a merry Christmas?

My vaca to Colorado was great - full of wonderful people, food, and weather! The whole visit was a lot of fun! I look like a giant on skis:

While out there, I received many gifts of great yarn to add to my stash:
-Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in the Martha's Vineyard Colorway- already being knit into a pair of falling leaf socks for myself.
-Blue Skies Alpalca - in purple, green, and tan. I'd like to turn this into a soft, wintry hat. Possibly Brooklyntweed's Red Light Special.
-Light and dark purple new wool - I'm still thinking of a project for these.

I also bought a beautiful knitting book that is full of pictures of both knitted swatches and nature shots, called The Art of Knitting.

Finally - one of my goals for 2007 - KNIT A SWEATER! I'm going to place an order for knit picks yarn as soon as I get back to Boston.

ps. Today is Russian Christmas, although with no snow on the east coast, it sure doesn't feel like it!
