Christmas presents have mostly been sent (still working a bit on one) including one Finished Object from the knitting needles: a scarf of natural colored angora from handspun yarn that was some of my first, so it's been marinating in the stash for literally 20+ years. It's for my 91 years young godmother and while she hasn't had need of it yet this year I'm sure it will get cold enough to be useful.
It's based pretty much on the Seafoam Scarf which was the popular knit a couple of years ago. Typical of me to ride the backside of any knitting trend. I'm pretty sure I have a thorough knowledge of yarn overs now. ;-)

Minnie and Fuzz - "Take your time...it's nice out here."
And the nicest Christmas present is Peanut's progress. We can't say 'Christmas Miracle' because it took a solid six weeks of medical attention and bandages but the deeper wound on her leg has finally closed. Nice pink skin and no discernible lameness.
We're leaving the bandage off but will keep her penned for a while yet until the skin toughens up and reaches a sturdy, normal thickness that can withstand the inevitable bumps and scuffs from other sheep at the hay feeders.
"I is healed!"
"And I wants to go over THERE!"
Hang on Peanut, the new year is coming and I think your sentence will be up!
