Happy New Year 2014!

Happy New Year!! 

I've been working all morning here in my office . . .  Here's wby:


I'm experimenting again with doing direct uploads from my computer to the blog - so far, so good with no bizarre lines running through.   I'll update my progress later in the day

I'm making progress, though, while I wait for the snow to descend.  It's not snowing yet where I am, south of the city, and I know I should run out and snow blow the driveway once before it starts because you know it will be a ton harder after it snows a ton more . . .

Oh, and another sweater quantity of yarn to the hutch - the Shilasdair Luxury DK  I bought in Scotland on the Isle of Skye back in October.  It just got here a couple of weeks ago and I didn't have the opportunity to photo it and get it into my Ravelry stash.

It's pretty, isn't it?  :-)  It has angora and camel and cashmere in it.  I think it's going to make a really nice sweater.  And, it was purchased in 2013, so, so far, so good for A Year With My Yarn  :-D


 I also had to add this that arrived on Monday to my stash:


It's Morning Moon Alpaca worsted weight. A Christmas gift from Tammy, the Proverbial Knitter.  Can you believe she bought me YARN?!  :-D  It's beautiful - she said it reminded her of African violets  :-)   It does!! 

I think 2014 is going to be an amazing year :-) 

Off I go - out to pound the driveway  :-D
