I blink....

and its 2012.


And the silence of the blog might make you think that I've been doing nothing but working.

Which is sort of true.

But would leave out:

  • The fun I've had making pin boards over at Pinterest.  I think it's my new favorite social networking site.  Looking at other people's pins gives me lots of ideas.
  • The fact that I have a new crush on novelty ribbon yarns like Katia Triana and Trendsetter Cha Cha and that I made 4 of these scarves before New Years and have started 1 of these.  The scarf is deceptively easy and is highly likely to make you the recipient's new best knitting friend. My only regret is that I gave three of them away as gifts and didn't get to photograph the whole group together.  
  • Making play dough for the kiddo using this recipe and McCormick's so-called neon color food dyes.  The small person had great fun with it.
  • Making 2 batches of these Double Chocolate Cookies and a batch of these very fun and extremely easy Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites -- I glitzed them up for the holidays by dipping them in sugars, nonpariels and jimmies.  I tested out a molasses cookie recipe as well, but that one didn't give me the results I was looking for. 
  • Downloading Rainmeter and customizing my computer desktop -- I can spend hours downloading skins and playing with things and not getting bored. 
  • All the time I've spent with my elliptical

Life is fun, but I don't get as much time as I would like to document it. 

I think my only goal for the new year is to get back in touch with the programmer girl... she's been AWOL for a while and I miss her.
