A new year

Sorry, I haven't posted too much recently. I can't believe it has been more than 2 months. Part of the reason is because I have worked on some sweaters for the kids- I designed the pattern, and have figured out how to size it. I am trying to decide what to do with it, so I can't show you any pictures of those yet.

A recap of completed crocheted projects from 2008-
Hats- Very Versatile Vertical x2
baby hats- too many to count
Driftwood cap from Interweave crochet 2008 x2
Basic dc beanies x 4
Child's hat
Santa baby hat

Scarves x2 (Driftwood cap and scarf)

Sweaters- Butterscotch cardigan for me (IC Spring 2008)

Eagle Pullover for DH (IC Winter 2007)

Sweaters for kids x4

Baby Bamboo sweater and pants

Tapestry Tortilla warmer for us

Infinity runner (IC Winter 2007)

Shell of Shells for me (Lily Chin Couture Crochet Workshop)

Too many baby washcloths (I don't know for sure but I'd say over 10)

Felted purses x4

Filet crochet market bag

Crochet doll

What's on the list for 2009? This month I've already completed a pair of socks- and a baby outfit for a friend. Troubador socks from IC spring 2008.

I am also working on a cardigan using the llama yarn I received as a birthday gift last year. I think I finally found a pattern that will work with it. I've tried a couple others so far, and while I love those patterns, they weren't right for that amount of yarn. More hats, sweaters, bags and socks are also on the agenda.

Oh, and my sister in law showed me how to make a center pull ball when hand winding. I absolutely love it!
