Happy happy 2008! What a great resolution - maybe I'll add that to my using up stash one!- if I make it sock yarn or a single skein it comes under my get out of gaol free! Seriously though, it's been so great and inspiring to meet you in 2007 -and 5 mongolians have warmer heads because of your beanies! (and the ladies at the womens shelter got new stuff and my house is a teeny bit less cluttered - but there's still a loooooong way to go!) I'm looking forward to meeting up with you in March (and given the rate at which someone stole last year that should be in about 3 weeks!)

that's the good thing about 10mm needles, for all that they are clunky to hold on to, damn fast!

Wow!! Way to go!! Happy New Year, I have missed so much: so many hats, the puppies, the green scarf, the great socks, the Ins and Outs, the going and coming back of YARN!!! Love your Australian Knitting terms too!!!
