Happy New Year's
Today we all say "Goodbye" to 2009 and look forward to 2010! 2009 has been a good year for our family and I hope it treated you well also.
I finished up my French Press Felted Slippers and I'm wearing them right now! Aren't they cute? I just used some plain ivory, pearly buttons on these, but I'm thinking I might make another pair or three - maybe black with big, honkin' rhinestone buttons?
I only wrote one pattern this year (Flamenco) and while I did stay pretty busy with our move and my parent's move (which for me, really only involved a few extra animals around here for a bit), I definitely want to get more done next year. I've already got three patterns in various stages of development and I've got some ideas for a fourth pattern. I'm also playing with some other ideas for patterns. I'm looking forward to the Olympics in February (both for the actual Olympics, which I've watched since I was a small Pink Lemon and for the Ravelympics - knitting plans will be revealed later). I'd also like to do some more crochet next year.
I hope you have a fun and safe New Year's Eve tonight! We've decided to let Caleb stay up since he's 9 now (but he has to have naps today and tomorrow), so that should be fun. May 2010 be a fabulous year for you and your family!
