First Day


A First Day Walk in the woods along the beautiful-in-every-season Shenandoah River



Some First Day knitting,

Fidra by Shetland Trader. Still need a pompom. Fun and easy, quick knit.

                                                                                 

 and the start of promised January spinning of Hassie's home grown indigo dyed wool,


while Fritz went for a First Day ride on his new toy

He really likes that bike.


Hope you first day was happy and full of hope.

Those socks look great, as does the hat. Glad you got out for your walk, hope the old back coped ok. Have Fritz ditched the Harley or is this an addition to the stable!

That hat is really nice.
Our first day was really quiet, I took Mum to church and she came home with me for lunch and spent part of the afternoon with us. After she went home I read for a bit because even though the calendar says it's summer the temps say it is the beginning of winter. Quite cool, windy and wet. It can only improve she says hopefully.
Happy new year.
