Wooly antics

Happy yawwwwn... and a happy new year to all. Thus far, this year is pretty fab.

Today I've been playing with some hand-dyed wool, which gradually formed into a Children of Lir kinda thing... there's plenty more final touches & twiddling to do,  but it made for a charming morning (while Miss Marple solved a mystery in the background) :-)  This Season was filled with oodles of conversation, and those Lir swan-siblings were one of the many captivating subjects.

(PS: thanks to my little black cat for her patience while I was playing with the wool. She teetered over the strands, holding herself back, with the odd little whimper. Such fortitude...  And thanks to Sandra & the sheep of Inis beg for the wool!)

Well, it's almost certainly nap o'clock, on the last day of my Christmas holidays. Busy busy!
