Crafting On :: Christmas Bouquet

The wind is picking up this third day of Christmas and temperatures are getting back where they should be.  The ground is wet and the neighborhood spring is flowing again.  It's the best we can hope for right now, rain for Christmas, and it's just what we need.  I might want snow, but rain is easiest for folks to swallow.  It feels so good to have the Christmas rush of gift making over!  The gifts were well received and yesterday, the day after Christmas, I squirreled away my first present for next year!

Roving Bouquet

Here's my roving bouquet from Cedar Ring Circle.  My grandmother commented to me how beautiful it was, and there's yet another layer underneath of more colors!  I think my first project will be King Winter, though he'll probably come from roving I already have "in stock."  I feel free to create now, which is so nice!  No more rationing!

Icy Hombre

The Icy Hombre was completed last Thursday and I am so pleased.  I even wore it on a walk with Mike and the children, just to test it out.  It's a wave stitch crochet and was really quite simple.  There are so many patterns for things like this, but this is just a formula, a set of dimensions.  That suits me very well!

Tess D'Urbervilles Shawl

My knitting right now is just for me. It's about time!  I'm making myself a Tess D'Urbervilles Shawl and I am so excited.  A tie-on shawl is perfect for warmer days and times when I want to be warm and "fly" about the house like Mother Wilder.  You can see that Rosalie got some Christmas pants and the three girls all got matching headbands.  Laurel was so pleased.  If you are ever wondering, we think the very best shoes for Waldorf dolls are Saartje's Bootees.  blakdove made these.  They're pretty sweet on real babies, too.

And now, well, I must clean up the sprinkles from the long-awaited sugar cookies.  Laurel's napping!  Yay!

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
