Last Post for the Year

I can't believe 2006 is over already! It has been a trying year for me in so many ways, but there were a lot of good times too.

And looking back on my resolutions for 2006, this one stuck out...

"2) To design more of my own knits"

I can certainly say that I was not without a secret project or two this year! :) I hope the trend continues, but I also wouldn't mind some free time to knit some things for me this time around!

And finally, we end with a meme - I was tagged by Lis before Christmas, but am just getting around to it.

Five Weird Things About Me (though I don't consider them weird at all - it's just how I am!)

1) I'm not only a sweater designer, but a mechanic too! Don't believe me, here take a look:

This is my 1972 Dodge Dart that I started to refurbish a few years ago. Now it's just sitting in DB's yard crying out for attention. I don't really have too much time for it nowadays. It makes me sad to see it unfinished!

2) Sometimes I think I have slight psychic powers.

3) I eat the same thing for lunch every weekday - a turkey burger with goldfish crackers. This boggles the minds of my co-workers, but it makes my life and shopping list easier!

4) I'm either extremely productive or extremely lazy. There is no middle ground.

5) I picked a fiance who is intrigued with little hampsters that sing "Everyone was Kung Fu Fighting". Ok, that's a cop out, but really, I don't think I'm that interesting or weird!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! May you have many more secret projects this coming year (as well as the time to knit stuff for yourself). Hope to see you soon.

Happy New Year!
Congrats on following through last year's resolution! It's tough to stick by them sometimes... And you came through with such lovely patterns!

I saw these pics on flickr and was like, "what the?" I had to come over and see what it was all about! How awesome is it that you are a mechanic? I'm totally impressed!

Happy new year!

That is one cool car--I hope you get more time to work on it this year! And congrats on all of those sweater designs--they are gorgeous, and you are a really talented designer (and mechanic, it seems!).
Happy New Year! :)

I'm totally impressed with you working on that car.

Wishing you a year as fabulous, if not more fabulous, as 2006!

designer AND mechanic? that is so rad. you should post about it more -- i love that it really breaks down gender stereotypes. did someone teach you?

and you had an extremely productive year! such great patterns.

Amazing what you find when you scratch below the surface of a woman. Years ago before we got married, the husband and I both spent some time working at Year One. He came away with a 79 Trans Am purchased from a co-worker and a ton of parts at employee cost for his other Trans Am.

I just get to whip out random info about American muscle cars to astound and amaze :-)
