A Lovely Christmas Present

photo(41)

This was my Christmas present from my daughter and her family—4 skeins of Claudia Handpainted fingering weight merino from The Loopy Ewe.  Top to bottom, the colorways are Oops! and Secrets.  I have the sock pattern all picked out for the Oops!; I just need to get another pair of socks off needles first.  Meanwhile, I plan to keep the yarn calm by frequent squeezing and stroking.  This feels really nice.

Today was a quiet New Year’s—slept late, went to church, cooked lunch, and knitted while watching All Creatures Great and Small on Netflix and listening to a David Baldacci audiobook.  All, of course, with a short nap thrown in.  Tomorrow it’s back to some business items, doing some more decluttering, and trying to finish sorting recipes into the binder.  None of that sounds very strenuous, does it?

That is beautiful yarn and what a wonderful present! What book are you reading? I read Wish You Well several years ago and really enjoyed it.
