What's in a Meme? 2008 Edition

Sorry, bad joke. But it's all I got right now.

This knitting meme has been floating around for some time now, and I thought it might be fun to post it this year and then update it each year to see how I've grown as a knitter.

You have been busy! I'm sure when I get started I won't have done half as much as you - I guess I am a creature of habit.
