We have been making things.
Abigail and her mother have been making cookies. Those cookies.
I have already had it up to my proto-Gandalfian eyebrows with holiday baking so I kept out of the kitchen. Instead, I sat down with Abigail on Christmas Eve and (courtesy of a sweet little notion from Girl on the Rocks) did my best to further instill the home truth that Making Things with Yarn = Fun.
(You get to choose your own yarn. We chose Cascade 220 Sport.)
On Christmas morning, I presented Abigail with another yarn-based thing I had just finished making.
I've named the purse* Floradora. This is the beta, child-sized version. A grown-up version, larger and considerably refined, will hit the shops in January to herald the launch of a new class, "Cavalcade of Colorwork," débuting at the Madrona Fiber Arts Winter Retreat in February.
Now that I have made this blog post, I am going to make a trip to the cookie jar. (I said I was fed up with holiday baking, not holiday eating.)
*I forgot to mention it's in Cascade 220. I guess we're having a Cascade Christmas.
