I hope you like it — I know I enjoyed knitting it, and happily I made myself one very like it too. I will post pictures of it when I can get some taken.

Right now my very favourite joke is to look out side and say: “It looks like winter wonderland!”
And you know something? I does — for months on end — enough winter wonderland for practically everyone — enough to share with a great many people and enough that it goes on long enough there is very little chance of missing it.
It is so hard for me to let go of things — even things that I know I will never accomplish, but I have decided to quit things that do not get me where I want to be. Knitting with the knitting machine is one of those things. It is not that I didn’t have ideas for it, or that it was a bad idea, but I have a job and hand knitting and other things I want to do, and I can’t be good at everything (I want to cross that out and write something more appealing to my vanity, but it is the truth).
I gave it away today, and Jenny can use it instead. I will watch her productions with interest and leave you with a picture of my most successful project on the knitting machine:
I would like to wish everyone a happy new year and let you know that I have started another project — Bounded in a Nutshell: I plan to talk about my culinary adventures and my exploration of what I really like to eat. I have decided to become good at cooking. I know how to cook to some extent now, but I want to be good enough that it becomes an expression. That may sounds pretentious and for that I apologize, but that is what I want. I will continue blogging here too, so please stick around.
I know I decided not to start a cooking blog, but I reserve the right to change my mind as I am frequently wrong. I tell myself that this is okay as long as long as I am not too wedded to my opinions.
I have been working on a crochet pattern and my mittens over the holidays and will have some pictures soon — I am so looking forward to wearing them.
As I am not sure how good it would be for us to actually implement all the things we say we want to achieve, I hope that you all are able to implement your new year’s resolutions proportionately to how good it would actually be for you to achieve them.
