I've adopted an approach of gentling along this New Year, trying to get things in balance, you know actually having fun as well as working, stemming the tide of the latest runny nose with a tissue rather than my knitting, all those good things to take care of myself. Anyway gentling has got me to the end of the month somehow without a word on here, ticking along, working on my fourth honey cowl as my hands no longer require my brain for that one. So all is well here though I am quiet. There was a gentle but delicious treat of a patchwork course here yesterday. The view from the workshop is a special one. Though it is all but a month old already I hope your New Year is treating you well.
