Bah humbug

Do not ask me what my new years resolutions are. I do not make resolutions. I do not do introspection and self-evaluation. I prefer to avoid any serious or deep thought about the realities of my life, the things I may not be happy with, or things I may want to change. It's like a mistake in knitting: don't look at it too closely because you may unintentionally pick at the wrong loop and before you know it the entire thing (a blanket, say) has unraveled in a flash, becoming a useless pile of thread with no discernible loops or stitches remaining. What was an identifiable, seemingly substantial, tangible item has simply vanished, ceased to exist at all.

So I will not pick at, discuss, or even think about any loose threads. I will not make any resolutions. I have learned my lesson.

So are you starting over with the blanket?

I think starting over is the best answer. As long as I can remember how to cast on! :)

Thanks for all the kind words, Mike.
