I have designed my very first needle knitted project!
It is an easy cabled neck warmer/head wrap and is knit in bulky yarn. This is a very easy cable project and would be a great first cable project for anyone wanting to dive into cables. It is available for sale on my website and on Ravelry.

A look back at my projects of 2008. I had so much fun and learned many new things this past year.
I would have to say the most challenging project was the test knit that I did for LilyGo which was the sweater I knitted for my mom on Mother’s Day.
The most enjoyable knit was Lelah which is the strapless top I knitted for Jennifer’s Birthday.
The one that surprised me most was the Lacy Shrug I also knit for Jennifer to go with Lelah as it was much easier than I expected it to be.
The one that excited me most was learning the picot edging for my knitted Grandma’s Favorite Dishcloths.
The most frustrating was those awful Broad Rib Spiral socks! The pattern was easy enough and it was the first time I knit 2 socks at the same time. However the yarn was awful and looked like Desert Storm military socks! I was very disappointed in that yarn as it was pricey and I expected better.
The most fun was Egeblad Doily which I used to cover my bedside lamp, so my friend dubbed it the Love Shade. Funny but I only was able to enjoy it for about a week and then the lamp died!
The knit I am most proud of is the dress I knitted for Jennifer for Christmas. I actually knitted it in the round and figured out how to do it! It came out just perfect!
The project most changed was my Lady E which ended up being felted into a purse.
The ugliest was that darn Ladybug Shrug~! What was I thinking?
I sometimes took time to knit a fast dishcloth here or there or to crochet a quick market bag. Sometimes you just have to see results fast! I did manage 2 charity projects but I really should do better than that in ’09.
Overall…I am most pleased with everything I knit or crocheted and the most important thing of all is … I had fun doing it~!
