And good riddance to 2005. It was not my bff. But that’s ok because now there’s 2006. I thought I’d share my family’s New Year’s Day tradition since I have only recently learned it’s not universal. We have pork and sauerkraut (or in my case seitan and sauerkraut), usually with mashed potatoes and peas, but that’s not part of the superstition. Something about pigs rooting ahead and cabbage being green for money. My boyfriend said he grew up with a similar story, but a different food – black eyed peas. My brother and his girlfriend are starting their own – pizza and a movie. So what’s your New Year’s tradition? (Let me know in the comments if you do a post on it.)
In knitting news, I’m making progress on the Baby Bobbi Bear. He just needs ears and a face. He’s a little wonky though. I can’t decide whether to gift him or call him practice and make another on smaller needles. His stuffing shows through a little. Poor thing. He sure is soft and cuddly though.
