Happy New Year!

Hope everyone had a very nice holiday season and hopefully some time to relax. I certainly enjoyed my time off after the craziness at work and hope I'm well rested to jump right back in tomorrow.

And since it is New Years, it's time to take a look back at the previous year and see how and what I've done since last year.

Published Designs:

- Wallis Cardigan -- Interweave Summer 08
- Gigi -- Knitty Summer 08
- Guinevere -- neoknits
- Urban Wrap -- neoknits
- Buttercup -- Popknits Fall 08
- Tatami re-issued -- neoknits
- Plus 1 project for the next SnB book coming out next Fall
- Plus 1 project for Interweave Knits Spring 09

So that's 7 sweaters knit for publishing with the first one being knit at the tail end of 2007. Not bad, but didn't quite keep up with the 12 from '07.

However, I did have a much better year on the selfish knitting front:

- 3 sweaters
- 1 shawl
- 2 stockings (ok they were gifts, but still impressive I had time to knit 2)
- 2 berets
- Plus a few projects I got to start, but are wips

What do I hope that 2009 will bring? Well, I hope it brings lots of creativity and discipline in time management. There are a few places I'd love to work harder on getting published in and I hope to keep building up the neoknits design portfolio. I'm also working on something super, super, super exciting for Fall right now, but can't tell you yet! Sorry! But this super exciting something might mean things will be a little quiet around here til the end of February or beginning of March. Let's just say I relaxed a little more over the holidays than I should have.
