It's Monday morning, and the holidays are officially over. After all the planning, preparation and anticipation it's always a bit of a let down. That's why it's a good thing to have lots of work lined up. There's nothing like a full schedule to get you back in the swing of things.
In preparation for the week ahead I did some work over the weekend. I will be dyeing later this week, so I spent time getting yarn ready for the pots. After a short break from dyeing over the holidays I'm back in the groove.
I also posted all of the Dirty Water DyeWorks yarn on Ravelry. If you're interested, you can find it here. Another thing off my to-do list.
Somehow I didn't get as much knitting done as I had anticipated - probably because I was working on all of the above. I do have something ready and waiting for me.
This will be a new project, a new booth sample. By the way the mug is the work of Jennie the Potter. Check out her Etsy shop - she also makes knitting related pottery.
Have you ever seriously considered becoming a shepherd? Do you have the space for a flock? Susan from Juniper Moon Farm is having a Flock Giveaway. Actually she's giving away two flocks. Be sure to pop over and take a look. Even if you're not interested in entering, it's fascinating to follow the process and see who wins the flocks.
We had a bit of a celebration on New Year's Eve complete with hats, horns and confetti. I woke up on New Year's Day to find this - remnants from the night before.
