Despite the lack of content, knitting has continued and I can finally declare the back and front pieces of Henley complete!
This boring photo is of the neck shaping. A sleeve has now found it's way to the needle and I am hopeful it will grow quickly. Speed has eluded me, I diligently work on one (or two) projects, but time flies, and instead of a sweater a month, it takes four, or more. It takes the time it takes and I do what I can do. At some point I will have a very lovely sweater to wear.
The parade of Santa ornaments continues with Copper Coil Santa. He is one of my favorites because of his fun, crazy beard, which was stitched by coiling yarn round and round and couching it in place. His coloring of copper and black give him a unique quality, but his smile, his beard and his and mustache decidedly say "Christmas!".
