Knitterly Resolutions

I have avoided, to date, talking about New Years Resolutions. I am not sure why - it was large in my head at the start of the year, mostly as there was some success last year. But things keep happening, and I keep getting distracted. Not from making them, as I have, but from talking about them. But I have been spurred into action due to my participation in the UK Swap, so specifically I will talk about my knitting resolutions.

Its pretty simple. Basically, my resolution this year is to actually make the things that I knit wearable, even if this means going back and undoing things and spending even more time making the jacket into a cardigan or the vest into a vest that fits. There. Now it is public, I guess I better do it!

On a completely different point, I would like to take this opportunity to say a few words to the person that drilled a hole in our petrol tank, stole our petrol and left us with a non-functional car, so that I had to spend 5 hours getting to and from work today, and may have to for many more days yet, and on which I will have to spend more than what I intended to spend on skiing this year -
dear person. I cannot think of words foul enough to describe what you have done. I only hope that you took the petrol to save your dying grandmother, or something similar, although I think this is generous thinking on my part.

Oh I have so been there! I once had someone take the petrol from our car (although this happened on many occasions) and stole the battery too!

It's so damn annoying!

Oh poor you! What a ridiculous thing to do to another person.
