They say what you do on the first day of the new year you'll do all year. I hope so. The towel is for a friend and the shawlette is my long last finish of Sheldon & Leonard. Took over a year because I knit slow and have hand problems. Just got over hand surgery in late October. Love the hand painted String Theory yarn. Spruce head is the color. Merino, cashmere, nylon. At least it's a finish even if not perfect.
