Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year to every one!!  What a great holiday season we had here...snow, good food, and time to knit...spin...tat!! What could be better.
To the top left is the scarf from handspun finally done!  It went over well with the recipient as well as those she works with.  Below   my youngest DD hand sewed every stitch in this bag that is currrently  
 carrying my knitting projects.  It is really beautiful! Over to the upper right is the Lady and the Stone navajo plied and now making a scarf from Oceanwind Knits; tweed scarf.  I think I found it via Ravelry.

Below that is the January fiber from Crown Mountain. It is South African Top in the colorway "Celtic Glow".  Really pretty fine fluffy fiber spinning so far on a spindle until my hand recovers.
Thanks to StephieJo the winner for December.. I have sent her her goodies.  I still have not heard from "Anne"...let me know gal and we will chat.
Thanks to NewfieCatt Catt's Craftiness for her messages to me this week.  Check out her site for a nice story and some great crochet and knitted goodies!
And Thanks to "Amy" A Joyful Mom who is on Ravelry and stopped by here.  She liked the video in November.  I think I will make more to see if I can add more info for those who might like to try it the "old-fashioned" way.
Finally, our newest member of the menagerie is Shiloh, a 1 year old Labrador!!  I will add a picture later!  It is My DD's birthday present to herself...So far, the kitties are mortified but surviving.  Shiloh is not going near them but their tails are permanently fluffed.  Sigh.

Happy New years to you and your family! So very glad to hear you are podcasting again. I enjoy catching up. I feel for you with "arthur"in your hands. I asked a Physical Therapist friend for some exercises. She said stretching before and after plus balancing the task with tasks to prevent "over use". Keep up the good work and enjoy!
