I was hoping to get that snowboarding hat done by the time the ball dropped last night, but I ran out of yarn and was kind of far away from finishing it anyway (I've got at least two more repeats to do before the decreases).

2009 started on a good foot though, as I managed to drink and knit at the same exact moment. It was somewhat awkward, but I proved to myself that it was possible. A photo exists on a cell phone belonging to some guy named Joe. If he posts that to facebook (I so hope he does!) I'll share it!

2009 starts off with a mystery gift for Illanna and her fiancé, the Hemlock Ring Blanket, Jeanie, the Cabled snowboarding hat and the Koi needlepoint project that's so close to being done I can taste it! My mother also bought me a sewing machine for Christmas, so hopefully you'll be seeing some nifty projects coming forth from that as well. I'm so itching to give it a go!

Happy New Year!!

Great post!
Hey, has Stan's mom eased up on afghan mentions since she got the socks?
I haven't posted forever. I'm thinking your year in review wrap up will inspire me to do a similar post.
I must see this drinking and knitting pic - a straw seemed like the only way possible but I'm guessing you didn't use one.

I totally didn't use a straw, it was awesome!

I haven't seen Stan's mom since she got the socks and she usually makes the comments when I'm knitting the afghan in front of her. That might actually happen this weekend...so stay tuned!! :D
