post-holiday projects?

I love happy chaos and productivity of the holiday build up. But I also love the post-holiday sloth. After a few days of doing absolutely nothing but eating and drinking and eating more and padding around in my slippers, I like to have a slow, low-intensity project that I might work on around the fire.

STC Craft offered a lovely roundup of projects with free instructions from their beautiful crop of books this year. I didn't get to any of them before Christmas, but I just might try the one from One More Skein by Leigh Radford (and re-learn how to knit...yet again!). I can’t get enough of these slouchy-graceful cowls.

I, too, admit to having a few "sloth days" post-Christmas ... could this be why, perhaps, we have "New Years' Resolutions" shortly thereafter? Because we spend a week lounging around, eating left over sweets and postponing exercise routines? Here's to the post-holiday sloth! :)

Without a doubt, you possibly can include coloring towards white-colored wedding ceremony gown, give this a new elegant contact and also however bring back the reasonable appear.
