Happy New Year! (Or, at least, Happy Old-Year-Is-Finally-Over!)

We will not miss 2010. We had heart - breaking losses, an exploding car*, and nasty injuries.
And that's only the stuff I told y'all about. There was more...
(In trying to find a bright side, at least this year we only lost animals, and no people.)
(There's always a bright side. Or so they say.)

I'm a little depressed looking back over my knitting for the year - I don't think I completed a single project. Lots of starts, no finishes.
(If I made New Year's resolutions, I would probably have to address that.)
(Luckily I don't make New Year's resolutions.)

I did finish some spinning, though. Of course, that was in January.
Now I'm really depressed...

* Technically, the car exploded the end of last year, but all the repercussions were this year, so I'm counting it against 2010.

Point of interest - this was my 400th post! Though apparently I don't do anything to post about...

2011: the prime year of prime events for the mangofeets. HNY!

Happy New Year!

This one has to be better, right?

Congrats on post #400. Yeah, you don't do anything, just raise sheep and chickens and have exploding cars and such. Very boring life you lead, not.

I'm with you for a better new year.

So yeah, let's all send out good-year-karma. Can't hurt.

Since when is an FO the be all and end all of knitting? You did what you did and that was what you did. Period.

Dear Gayle,

Here's to a better year for you. Our 2008 and 2009 were so bad (financially, and animal-wise) that last year seemed good just in comparison.

I didn't make New Year's resolutions but I am going to try to spend more time reading blogs, less time on Ravelry, so maybe you'll see me here more often.

Hang in up there. (Our snow is gone, btw.)
