Holiday Break Part Two

Break is winding down,  Mister and I have been busy.  Mister is getting ready to take on teaching two upper level math courses at a new to him university.  I know he'll do great and I'm over the moon for him. 

I've been working on playing computer games, knitting, spinning Allistar's fleece for a sweater and doing a lot of cooking.  I feel relaxed and ready to dive back into school.  

I have also completed a commission for a client.  I was asked to restring and knot a pearl necklace.  I had to make an emergency dash to the supply shop for silk cord.  I was chatting with the sales woman and she called knotting pearls a lost art.  I smiled and told her I was really into a lot of lost arts.  Knotting beads is one of my favorite things to do and I hope to get more of it up into my Etsy shop.  I have some ideas kicking around.  I finished my client's necklace and here is the result.  I love the way fresh silk wakes up a necklace!  I hope my client will like it.

For the remainder of break, I'm planning on warping my loom again, keep on spinning away and maybe finishing my socks that I'm re-knitting.  I also started a new book recently, and maybe I'll spend on day this weekend doing nothing but reading.  Hmm, decisions decisions.  Have a great weekend everyone!

From now until January 31st, I'm having a sale in The Cloistered Lamb Esty shop.  Get 15% off when you use coupon code: NEWYEAR12
