Happy New Year!

The take-up and shrinkage on my runners took me by surprise.  I’m going to repeat this in different colors and figure out how much warp I need to get the results I want.  This is too narrow and too short.

I liked the colors on this runner, just not the size.

In fact, it’s the size of a towel.  I’ve woven the same dish towels for way too long, and I have a long way to go to knowing what I’m doing with this overshot, but they were fun to weave.  I want a runner and placemats.  Back to the drawing board!

I saw these guys on a morning walk last week.  There are bowls on the walk there which I assume have been left for the deer, maybe water? I’m still having problems with my left forefoot and have an appointment to see an orthopedic surgeon January 17th.  It hurts to walk but having cabin fever hurts more.

It started snowing on Christmas Eve, which we celebrated here with family and friends.

And we awoke to a White Christmas, celebrated with family at Josh and Missy’s.  The new tradition is king crab legs and green salad.  It’s very good tradition :-)

I’ll leave you with this New Years Wish.

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness.  I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're swonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can.  And I hope somewhere in the next year you surprise yourself.”  Neil Gaiman

Happy New Year, Sharon! I love the Neil Gaiman sentiment.

I found myself wondering today what book Ian picked for you for Christmas this year.
