Happy 2009!

I'm sure that there are lots of things that I could think of to aim to do in 2009 but here are just a few off the top of my head.

Put in enough training so that running the London marathon in a sub 4-hour time is a reasonable target.
Finish the Anya sweater.
Get a knitting pattern in an actual publication.
Design a full-size adult sweater.
Submit a quilt to the Festival of Quilts in August (not aiming to win anything, just for the fun of seeing it hung on a board).

My two and a bit weeks holiday in Bolton has just flown by. I've been fairly productive. I've finished three knitted items, designed two, and published one. I've been on 6 runs, gone walking in the lakes, attended three football matches, watched cows being milked, made two trifles, and even given the baby her bath all by myself (it's a slippery task).

Love the sweater. I really liked dressing Ella in Anything But Pink! The added bonus was a few things were passed on to her little brother. Really looking forward to seeing your finished Anya, too.
