The Best of 2009

Babette Afghan. Model, Larry

Happy almost New Year everyone! I want to thank ALL of you for reading my little blog this year and leaving comments. We love comments!
Even though I write about Los Angeles, cooking, family and friends here, my primary focus is knitting and crochet. So, I thought I'd list my favorite top ten projects of 2009. This was the year that I focused on making shawls. I could definitely list more than ten shawls as ALL of my favorites, but since I used the same pattern for lots of the shawls, I thought I'd talk about a bunch of different projects!
You can find all project details on my Ravelry projects page.

"It's a Wrap" Shawl w/ edging from Doris Chan's "All Shawl"
Granny Triangle Shawl with "All Shawl" Border (Model, Courtney)
Floaty Scarf (which is essentially a granny triangle) Model, Susannah
Garland of Stars
I completed three scarves for the Red Scarf Project. Here are two.

My favorite from this post would have to be the edge from Doris Chan's All Shawl, the colors remind me of the fall color displayed so beautifully on the leaves of trees. It has been a wonderful experience getting to know you just a little bit. You live life so fully and are an absolute joy to be around.

wow- even though I followed these all year long, it's quite inspiring on one page. I usually avoid resolutions but I'm going to say : granny squares in 2010.
Happy new year to you & Larry!
