HEY! How've you been since last year?? WA HA HA HA - I never get tired of that joke. Good riddance to 2007, not one of my favorite years BY FAR. Here's to a fresh and FABULOUS 2008!!

I've been fine since last year, thank you. We had prime rib:

Mmmmm....meaty......

and Yorkshire pudding:

Made untraditionally, but much less messily....

for dinner last night, both new dishes for Matthew and me to cook, respectively. Both turned out great. Gus stayed up until midnight, for the first time, which thrilled him, though I faded out at about 11:15, and he had to wake me up at midnight, shouting, "TEN... NINE... EIGHT... SEVEN..." in my ear, which was quite startling.

On the knitting front, Kate Gilbert, designer extraordinaire, responded very promptly and kindly to my email about the Wintergreen Mittens, and I was able to spend an enjoyable (and exciting!) New Year's eve ripping out and re-doing. Here is newest version:

I lurve how the Scottish Tweed is coming out - it's so extra-SUPER-tweedy!! I really should be knitting my Tangled Yoke cardigan, but the siren song of these two fabulous pairs of mittens is too strong for me right now. Why fight it?

Hey, does anyone have any New Year's resolutions, knitting or otherwise, that they'd like to share? I love the idea of starting fresh on New Year's, but I can't think of any particular resolutions I have this year, other than to lighten up in general. Life's too short to be sweating everything, for sure!!

My New Year's resolution was to stop despising the New York Yankees as much as I have.
Whoops! That one's broken already...

I'm resolving to determine some way I can snap my fingers and have peoples' pants fall down.

I'm thinking it would be something to try during a meeting, when I get bored.
