I finished spinning and plying my North Ronaldsay fiber. You can clearly see the hairs vs the downy kind of fiber.
Bob's sweater is moving along. I have to measure the length to see whether it's time for arms yet. I think not but I hate to waste knitting so I don't want to exceed the desired length.
I am knitting mawata mittens. The great cast on (for the Ravelery group) was Friday. I have started 3 times. This last try appears to have done the trick. I have the correct circumference for my wrist. Silk doesn't stretch much (if at all) so it's important to be pretty darn accurate. I love the colors and find the knitting to be addictive. These are the mawata I am knitting with:
I blocked the Shaelyn shawl on Sunday. I love it and will have a hard time giving it away, I think.
We drove up to Manhattan on Saturday to see the Christmas tree on the last day it was lit. We were disappointed because, though the tree was lit, the other decorations in Rockefeller Center were already down and the light show had stopped. Next year we'll go earlier, like we usually do. OTOH, the weather was awesome! We didn't even need to wear gloves. We took our time walking around the area, looking in store windows and just enjoying the ambiance.
Sunday was filled with morning chores and afternoon football. I am so glad that the Broncos sent the Steelers home. : ))
