Dale Fox

Apparntly I used up the photo space on last post, here is my stash just received from Kitpicks, Telemark yarn

Post Merry Christmas

I was very lucky on Christmas and received so many grand gifts, many knitting related. I received these books

This glorious Hanne Falkenberg Mermaid Colorway 2

These Mission Falls Yarn Packs for striped Turtleneck, hat and mitts

Some Jamieson Yarn and a DVD to learn COntinental knitting

I also received the Peer Gynt Jubilee Book, some Lambs Pride and Patons Canadiana

An amazing stash to get 2007 going.

Besides which I received my order of Knitpicks Telemark for son's Dale Fox sweater

Hi pics yet as I am very tired, still knitting but so tired. I work 3 12 hour overnight shifts ina very busy major hospital. While I do manage to get some knitting done here and there...however, I also work per diem a few other places and try to have a know the drill. I am fortunate to have three tremendously understanding men in my life. DH appreciates the arts of crafting tremendously and is my main enabler, my two DSs have never known me to not knit or craft so are distantly impressed but also know if something is wanted or needed they will get it as quickly as I can produce it. I am finishing up some holiday knitting and working on several items for KALs. Working tonight and cutting sleeping short to get in some knitting...
I will be posting pics late Monday or early Tuesday of 2-3 finished items, perhaps 4 and update progress on the others.
