So here we are on the other side, again. Still here, still knitting. (And the fence is still standing, just.)
Last year was actually quite productive. I completed 35 separate projects, although rather a lot of them were other people's knitting, and I cannot show pictures of several of those yet.
I have been somewhat distracted from my usual routine over the last few days. The blame for that goes to a broken tooth, literally half an hour after the turn of the year. I do now have a temporary fix, which is a great relief, I can tell you. I've got to go back, of course, and get it fixed properly, and that is a moderately big deal.
Our dentist is not exactly local, you see. We drive all the way up to Surrey - about two hours in the car, if the traffic is light - and we consider it entirely worthwhile, because of the standard of his work. It is not common to find a dentist in the UK who is a member of the American Dental Association, as ours is, and the waiting room tends to be full of accents from the other side of the pond. People do travel quite a long way to see him, and our two hour drive is not exceptional in context.
I finished the crochet swatches - well, most of them. I am still waiting for two colours of yarn, when that turns up I shall be able to do the rest. The ones which I have finished went back to the designer, who is pleased with them. I was not quite so stupidly anxious about whether they would be acceptable, as I have been previously - perhaps I am actually getting over that, which would be sensible.
And it has just occurred to me that I forgot to take pictures of the swatches before I sent them off ..... Well, darn.
