Knitter's Review
December 31, 2009
cashmere with a heart

Every New Year's Eve, I refill my favorite fountain pen, grab my journal, and find a quiet corner to reflect on what's happened in the past year—and set my compass for the year ahead.

This was a big year for knitting. As the clock nears midnight and the first decade of the 21st century draws to a close, let's take one final glance back at the people, places, and things that shaped 2009 before we close the door and step into the New Year.

Please know how grateful I am for your readership. You are my favorite companion on this yarn journey, and I look forward to sharing many more discoveries with you in the coming year.

Hooray for Heifer
My deepest thanks to all those of you who've stepped forward and contributed to our annual year-end Heifer International fundraiser. There's still time to contribute, if you haven't already.

In the Forum: Gratitude
Looking back at 2009, let's forget about the dropped stitches, unexpected knots, and frogged projects and focus, instead, on the good things. What knitterly things are you grateful for this year?

thank you!
I wish you a safe, warm, healthy, inspiring, prosperous, and most lovely New Year. I'll see you in 2010!
