Happy Inauguration Day!
(Remember this? Wow.)
I can't believe it's actually happening. I couldn't sleep last night - like Christmas Eve. I'm trying to think of something actually meaningful to say, but I can't come up with the words. Maybe later after it actually happens and sinks in.
I have a carefully-constructed plan to watch the ceremony in one of the conference rooms at work. It required lots of jumping through hoops and getting permission from practically everyone in the company, it seemed like. I hope it works. Wish me luck. (And of course I'm TiVoing eight hours of C-SPAN just in case.)

I have accepted the position of Product Search Specialist at the company where I've been working for the past few years. I've been wanting this job for a while, and I am very very very excited.

Executive Orders: The Famous, the Infamous, & the Ridiculous
In honor of the inauguration, Ben & Jerry's brings us a limited edition flavor in scoop shops: Yes, Pecan! Anyone try it yet? How is it?
And I wonder if they were aware of all this when they named the flavor?

Believe it or not, I am weaving in the ends on my third finish of 2009 right now. But before we get to those, I wanted to show you a few of my last finishes of 2008. I got slightly obsessed with the Kalispell hat and made a few as Christmas gifts:
And now I'm working on one for myself...

And I found the following unpublished list of recommended articles from back in November. Some of them are rather dated by now, but they were all good, so I'm throwing them in here:
Remember back in November when I mentioned that I didn't actually have an everyday warm scarf to wear? Well, I promptly made one, and then never posted it. Here it is:

Join the Dye-namics Sock Madness Knit Off!
Dye-namics Yarn is sponsoring a contest during March Madness.

Happy New Year!
Happy 2009, everyone! Here's my New Year's resolution for you: I'm going to start blogging regularly again. At least once a week. I promise. I hope it will be more than once a week, but I figure if I commit to something doable, I'll be able to actually follow through. I have a few reading and crafting resolutions, too:
I'd also like to start writing some movie and TV reviews here, and posting about cooking more. But no specific resolutions there, I don't think.
