Happy New Year everyone!
Here at my parents', we celebrate a traditional Japanese New Years complete with a feast that looks like this:
It's also traditional to place "osonai" in various places around the home to welcome the New Year. What you see are cakes of "mochi" (pounded rice) with a clementine on top. For whatever reasons (probably aesthetic), the leaves have to be attached.
I finished my Fetching. I didn't do the picot cast off because I didn't really like how it looked, and also because I ran out of yarn and needed to harvest it from somewhere. (that picot cast off eats yarn)
A belated Xmas gift for a family friend: a pair of ballbands with soap.
I just went to Michael's and bought a ton of Sugar n' Cream, so I have enough ballband material to last me for another year. I should resolve not to buy any more unneccesary yarn, but I know I'd fail right away!
