how many days til christmas?

by this time last year, i was long finished with the christmas knitting. gah, what happened to 2005?

friend, avert your eyes again!




the deep aubergine glamour shot.













on the needles, a basketweave seaman's scarf. making up the pattern as i go along, if anyone is interested, i'll write it up after i'm finished. the yarn is lorna's laces worsted, very soft and yummy, the color in the photo is off, it's really a lovely subtle teal.

this will be a prezzie for the lady who carved my ivory acorns & oak leaves. she is always so nice to me and dd when we visit her shop :-)

the red splotches are fading. first time it happened, by coincidence i had a dr.'s appt. she thought it was contact dermatitis also, and didn't seem to concerned. i just think it looks weird!
