Just 2 small hand carved wooden animals.  I particularly like the grain of the wood in the little bear.  Simple objects which I have on my desk.  (Part of the clutter to the despair of my sons!)

IMG_5074IMG_5075  Despite, or maybe because of all the flurry of the Christmas season, I’ve managed to squeeze in a bit of knitting.  With the help of my cat of course.  These pictures show Scarf Number 9 in production.
