Ruby on Christmas fair isle, folded yoke detail Fair Isle Sweater in AlpacaFair Isle Sweater

Remember that fair isle sweater I started eons ago? I gave it to my niece for Christmas, and here’s how it turned out. The yarn is Drops Alpaca, ordered from Nordic Mart. I really enjoyed knitting with this yarn, and practicing colorwork.

We took a trip to Oakland to round out the year, visiting my sister and my niece. Welcoming my niece to our family was a wonderful part of 2012, and we look forward to watching her adventures in 2013.

I do love the California sunshine.

That’s Jack London’s cabin, fetched from the Yukon to rest in his home town.

We took turns posing with the baby. She’s so darn cute.

Our flight back to Portland landed just in time to celebrate the new year at home. Happy New Year! I hope 2013 is kind to us all.
