I know I publicly stated that I could only attend to holiday preparations AFTER I completed one of the three alpaca blankets. And I made it sound like I was going to – in true grit fashion – return to the sweat shop – ah – studio in the wee wee hours. What really happened was that my delightful husband made a blazing fire in the living room and a lovely hot toddy in a large mug and suffice it to say there was no more progress on the blanket. I did, however spend a couple of delightful hours browsing incredible textile/weaving sets on Flickr. I will include the links here:

And I checked this morning and they remain incredible – it wasn’t the just the toddy speaking.

I did do a few holiday preparations as well . . .
