Year in review

I came across this meme at another knitter's blog and found it pretty interesting. Basically, you write the first sentence of the first post of each month of the past year. My own results yield an interesting summary of my (mostly knitting) life over the past year.


I'm starting a new project: the Anouk pinafore/dress/tunic that was posted in the spring 2004 issue.


I've managed to get lots of work done on Anouk over the past few days.


While hearing the Byrds sing in my head, I successfully managed to turn the sock heel last night!

When I was working in the city, my local yarn shop was one I could walk to during my lunch hour.

Even though one sock remains unfinished and I still haven't figured out what I'm going to do about the cardigan, I've started a new project: a Medusa hat for Sylvia.

Usually, I'm a big fan of the U.S. Postal Service.

The big package I received from my SP8 last month included two smaller packages that she indicated were to be opened later, one in July and one in August.


Yesterday's issue of Knitter's Review features an article about a new type of organic yarn: Cornucopia, which is made out of corn.

This is a real product.


Well, almost.


This is an overdue thank-you to my friend Beth (my partner in crime during our college days--though if the feds ever question me, I'm gonna say it was all her idea), who sent me an amazing box full of fun stuff.

I actually remembered to say "Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit!" before saying anything else when I woke up this morning!
