There have also been some really exciting moments in the last year:

- We finally got to see each other again in February when Anne and Alex visited Australia! It was amazing to sit and crochet together, play with colour swatches and catch up on allll the talking that is hard to do over messenger, email or skype

- Being chosen to join the Stylecraft Blogstars team! This group of bloggers is so inspiring and we are still pinching ourselves a bit to be included!

- Selling 500 copies of one pattern, the Bargello Wave Baby Blanket!
