'08 to '09

Wow. 2009 snuck up on me. It’s so exciting to have a brand new year stretching before me. Although remembering to put /09 on my checks will take some work.

And speaking of some work, here is the sum total of the New Year’s Dash.

(“After,” minus the sock yarn from Gawain, which is already on the needles.)

Ta-da! Ten days of frenzied activity paid off. I’ve got five projects checked off my list, enough yarn to sink a small boat, and the knowledge that I can spin five and a half ounces in a day. (On average.) And even though the pile of New Zealand wool is still uncomfortably large, I’m happy.

I also have a large fiber order coming in, and there are rumors floating around that it might be time to refinish and fix up my spinning wheel.

Have a wonderful New Year!

    I would love to see the socks when they are finished. :)

    All of the yarn is beautiful!

    Thanks everyone.

    Well, as for what’s coming next, I have some “new to me” fibers on their way. (In other words, I’ll be wrestling with things like bamboo and flax.) And I’m planning to tackle natural dyeing techniques as soon as the last needed chemical arrives.

    But beyond that, you’ll have to wait and see! :)

    By the way, outandin was me. I didn’t realize that if I was signed in on that account it would give that identity here. Sorry!
