Year of the [knitted] Dragon – 「編んだ」辰年

According to the Chinese calender, 2012 is the ‘Year of the Dragon’. The Chinese New Year is symbolized by a new animal zodiac, determined by a 12-year cycle. Last year was the Year of the Rabbit. But 2012 welcomes a more commanding beast — the Dragon. It is considered the luckiest year in the Chinese Zodiac.

Those born under the sign of the dragon are regarded as innovative, passionate people who are colorful, confident and fearless. A Japanese knitter (and I guess she must be a dragon herself) has sent me several cute knitted dragons.

今年は辰年です。辰年の下で生まれた方はカラフルな、自信と大胆不敵な革新的な、情熱的な人々と見なされます。日本の編み物の方(彼女は辰かな〜)からいくつかのかわいいニットドラゴンが届きました。
