Well, I’m not going to start 2010 with a clean knitting slate, that’s for sure, although the hat above is off the needles! It’s just a simple chunky beret out of yarn that I bought at Maryland this year – Solitude heavy worsted. It’s gorgeous (and a lot heavier than what I’d consider a heavy worsted!).
2009 had its ups and downs for me, of course, but all the travel I did this year was definitely new and exciting! Back on my big trip in January, February and March, I went to Tokyo, Kyoto, Shanghai, Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Chennai, Delhi, Agra, a few other towns in India, and Scotland as well. If I had to pick, I think I enjoyed Japan the most. I’d love to go back.
In May I went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool for the first time, and in June I attended TNNA in Ohio as a designer! In July I went to Hawaii for vacation with my family (and came back with lots of coffee).
In October I went to Boston, and Rhinebeck – always one of my favourite events of the year. I already can’t wait for the next one. And in the midst of all this, I moved to my own apartment and managed to knit just a bit too!
Many thanks to all of you who’ve bought my patterns or book (hopefully both!), chatted with me at events or on twitter, and everyone who reads this blog! I couldn’t have had such a nice year without you.
Happy New Year – let’s make 2010 a good one.
