Happy New Year!

2012 was a busy year. As I look forward to 2013, here are a few highlights from the past year.

In April I took a trip to Iceland, where there was beautiful scenery,


Wonderful knitters, and of course lots and lots (and LOTS!) of wool.

The summer’s work culminated in the publication of Shapes + Form

Cookie A Knitwear Volume 1: Shapes + Form

And sweater knitters took themselves in new directions.

I visited Chicago twice to teach socks with the Windy City Knitting Guild and Vogue Knitting Live (and eat Italian beef, of course).

Al's Italian Beef

Knit. Sock. Love. was reprinted both in Finnish and in German.

Sock club knitters kept busy knitting up socks and baking cookies. Reykjavik was one of the most popular patterns this year.

But Jedi Mind Tricks might have been the most fun!

Anne Hanson came to visit in November and we spent a lovely weekend visiting friends at A Verb for Keeping Warm and enjoying the scenery in Marin County.



2013 is shaping up to be an interesting year, too. Between teaching and a vacation to somewhere a little exotic (can you guess?) I’m going to be traveling a little bit more.
