Happy New Year!

 It's chilly and snowy here, and we even have icicles on our roof for the first time in ages.  Sadly we were unable to get down our hill to deliver this shawl to our younger daughter on her 50th b'day! (They have a hill that goes straight up to their house plus a very steep driveway, so even if we got down our hill, it still wouldn't have arrived.)  Soon though hopefully, but more snow is predicted tonight.

This was Casapinka's  Snark-o-meter mystery shawl which I started in August and got put on hold for Christmas knitting.  It was finished just in time but hasn't been delivered thanks to SNOW. 

This is the last of 6 gnomes, 3 gray  beards and 3 white.  They were fun to make and then include with the Christmas gifts for relatives and friends.  (Thanks to Val for the pattern and kit!) We kept Mr. Graybeard, and I think he'll live in our garden window, at least for now.

Best wishes to Everyone for a Happy and Healthy New Year!  (And may 2022 be a better year for all of us!)

Happy New Year! The shawl is a beauty: I hope you’ll be able to deliver it soon.

That shawl is a beauty! I am sure it would have been appreciated in all that ice and snow. I've got one wrapped around me now and it's in the 50's today with rain.

This snow/ice is really a mess. Hope you are staying warm. Happy New Year to you too

That shawl is beautiful but I'm so sorry you were unable to deliver it. Hopefully soon since your area isn't known for long lasting snow. :-) Our friends in Spokane tell us that they got more last night too. They're sick of it already. Meanwhile we haven't had any yet this year! That's supposed to change on Saturday. The forecast is anywhere from 3 to 15 inches. Seriously. No one can agree. :-) So much for technology.
Have a great day and enjoy your enforced staying home.

The shawl is so pretty-what a project and not to be able to deliver it!
Soon, I hope you will be able to do so!
Happy New Year!
