A New Start

::the busy November/December months are gone::
::time for a new beginning::

::first a look back at how the new year will be 'informed'::
::Expand Your Horizons was a spin along set up by the Knitgirllls, Leslie and Laura where we would try different fibres every two months::
::There were lots of new techniques and types of yarn used during the year::
::New friends were made online::
::New places to meet for Knit and Natter::

::What direction do I want to take this year::
::To improve stranded work::
::To improve spinning technique::
::To watch, listen to and read more about my online knitting companions::

::Sounds like quite a busy time ahead::

::The prayer shawl above is the Easy Peazy Shawl by Megan Delorme which is to be sent to NewTown in America following their terrible tragedy last year::knitted in wool from the New Lannark Mills which brought education, work and shelter to children amongst whom were those shipwrecked on their way to America from the Scottish Isles::

Oh, such a beautiful prayer shawl and how generous of you to knit it and send it on to Newtown, Ct in America. I love the significance of the yarn you selected for it and I know it will be treasured by it's recipient.
