 So, here is the hat in the works.   On new needles.

... and the scarf, I cannot determine if it is the right length!   So, will maybe end it and fringe ... or knit a few more rows/repeats.

 I visited Carmel & Indianapolis the past couple days.   Wonderful exhibit at the Indianapolis Museum of Art on Gustave Baumann --- If you aren't familiar, here is an article from publication in Orlando (2012).   Or, check out the link at the IMA - here.

I did quickly visit the Asian galleries to see my two fav pieces on display:

December - to - now

Yes, I really did have a finish.   I finished knitting my maroon scarf.   Seed Stitch in December.   

I'm pretty close to finishing the blue/grey scarf, too.
I have added the fringe on one end.   have the fringe cut for the final end - so, am just knitting the 8 row repeat until the yarn is used up.   Probably 6 more inches.   

On to wanderlust ... 

... in December, DH + I visited Florida for a few days.   North Miami to visit the Ancient Spanish Monastery, link here.   

... and the Japanese garden in
Delray Beach, FL.   Link here.

... and Kissimmee, FL ...

Back at Home - view from window:

(camera went into hiding for a few weeks)

Was back at the AIC during snow flurries - enjoyed the new contemporary / modern exhibit, the  bronze lace bowl on the terrace, and of course "the bean" in Millennium Park.

Meanwhile, Mom was visiting family in Missouri -- so, I drove & picked her up.   Stopped at the St. Louis Art Museum, too.

... home again.   No trips planned for awhile.

November ....

As I was knitting for holiday gifts -- I didn't put much on the humble blog.   I made dishcloths and purchased spa socks, eos, soap to create a spa pks for family members.   Plus, made small bags.  [photos below].   

DH, DD, & I made a quick trip to the Cleveland Museum of Art, for the Painting the Modern Garden exhibit.  Same exhibit opens in London at the end of January.   Inf here.    As we were a few hours away from Niagara Falls -- we drove there, too.
