Saturday, January 01, 2005Happy new year? Well, with the end of 2004 being dominated by the Far-East/Asian Earthquake and tsunami disaster forgive me if I don't feel like celebrating too furiously. For those in the UK, there is an umbrella organization called the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) that is running a campgain for funds. Go here to donate if you are able. As they say: "Every penny counts".
So, because this is a knitting blog, I've compiled a pictorial tour of my year in knitting. I've a feeling that I've left a few things out, but never mind!
This is a run-down of the stuff I've made this year (with links to appropriate project pages where possible).
