Here's the front:
I managed to squeeze in a hike in the snow. Snowshoes weren't needed, as we haven't had any fresh snow lately.
Here's a photo of Shaman, a wolf who hikes with us, taking a treat from my splint-clad hand.
I only have to wear the splint if I'm driving or doing something strenuous, like housework (ugh!) or hiking. It's impossible to put a mitten over it, so I wear a heavy sock on that hand.
Sunday, I met a high school friend in Salt Lake City for lunch.
She lives in San Diego, but comes to Utah once a year for a genealogy conference. I hadn't seen her since 1985, when DH and I went to my 25th high school reunion. Our 50th is coming up!
Monday I started working on the newsletter for the Park City Mountain Sports Club. You can see the January issue here. I do the editing and pick out photos. Sometimes I write articles for the newsletter. Then I send everything to another club member, who does the layout. I enjoy hiking and snowshoeing with other club members, who are mostly retired or approaching retirement age. They're active, though.
What's on my needles: DS2's hat, the baby sweater and a bunch of UFOs.
What's on my iPod: Lorna Doone. I'm back to listening to the classic, which I downloaded from librivox.org.
What's on my spindle: Still the Ashford merino and silk in "Mulberry," and it's getting fatter all the time!
What's on my wheel: Still the rest of the pumpkin merino and silk for DS2's girlfriend.
I'm also reading an actual book: Respect the Spindle, by Abby Franquemont, available here. It's a good book, and gives a lot more detail about types of spindles and how they work than any spinning book I've looked at so far.
I hope everyone has a great year, filled with lots of knitting and spinning, and may you have very little frogging! --P
