Happy New Year!!

A storm is brewing outside, and may bring us nearly a foot of snow tonight. I'm bundled up inside with a roast in the crockpot, and reflecting on the year that was and the year that will be.

Highlights of 2004:


New Year's Goals:

  1. Find a job that is both professionally and personally fulfilling.

  2. Workout at least 3-4 times a week.

  3. Learn to cook, not just bake.

  4. Finish all lagging 2004 knitting projects by February 1.

  5. Finish a knitting project before buying yarn or starting another.

  6. Start knitting Christmas gifts by August.

  7. Keep apartment tidy.

  8. Gain confidence in knitting and blogging skills. Stop lurking and start commenting on other's blogs.

  9. Learn new knitting techniques.



Lagging 2004 Projects to finish:

  1. Rykert's (Christmas) ribby scarf.

  2. Bob's fingerless (Christmas) gloves.

  3. Cousin's (Christmas) mittenettes (1.75/3 complete).

  4. Bag from FCEK Winter 2004/05 using Lion Brand Landscape.

  5. Flower Washcloths from Weekend Knitting.

It's my considered opinion that if you can bake, you can certainly cook. Baking is harder than cooking, because you have to GET IT RIGHT and LEAVE IT ALONE. Cooking you can mess with; you can taste and adjust as you go along! (Here's my unfinished cookbook: http://www.goblinbox.com/cooking/).

You had a good year!
I agree -- if you can bake, you can certainly cook. I've found this weekly online discussion to be really helpful in terms of broadening my culinary horizons:

you can also go back and read old transcripts to help feel inspired. You can do it!

And when you learn new knitting techniques, don't forget to share!
