I’m super busy this time of year. The end of the school year comes soon but the New Year is the BIG occasion in Japan so lots of events and family stuff abounding abundantly. Holiday knitting? Don’t much happen round here. Committed myself to making lap blankets for family members (giant needles, bulky yarn) for friends and family but hard to really get them finished. At least I can vouch for two, one finished and given to David before he left for England and one more very nearly done for Iichirou. That leaves one more for Tetsuo and Seiko, maybe one for Yukiko and Kyou-chan. Or maybe they will get theirs much later . . .
