All that wood chopping does one good, and saves the gym fee too!

Merry Christmas right back at you!

I especially enjoyed the knit work - beautiful pieces. I did a couple of pairs of fingerless gloves last year and just learned to cable last month so I'll have to try a cabled pair for DD (cyclist).

The Christmas season is indeed here. Thanks for the video. Looks like you have a wonderfully rich life.

I enjoyed watching some of the past videos too. The birthday video is a riot!
