Seats, sweets, and repeats

Have a seat if you will, but don't smoosh the peonies please. :)

Have a sweet. Feast your eyes on my Sweet Swap pal Suzanne's goodies for me. Suzanne is from For The Love of Knits at typepad. Love the entire goodie box. What's your favorite card game?

Finally, today, on the subject of repeats:

I'm a repeater.
Now that I've joined the cowl craze, get ready. I'll be showing you my new cowls over and over I am sure.
Here are some things I repeat:

Patterns I love and have succeeded at knitting
New recipes I find. My family eats them for weeks until they don't want to see them anymore.
Music. I can listen to the same CD for a stretch of days.
Clothing. I found a skirt I love at REI and I want to go buy 2 more just like it.
THings I forgot I already said. "You just said that, " Im often told at home.
Dreams. I have repeat dreams ALL the time.

What do you repeat? Or am I the only one?

I'll talk to you in the comments. :)


Knit and fall back in it said...

I can listen to the same CD over and over. In fact, I've been known to listen to the same song over and over if it's one I really like.

I have low boredom threshold so I try not to repeat things, especially knitting. Although I am getting better, as I have watched ALL episodes of Go, Diego, Go, Dora, Wonderpets, et all, at least 57 thousand times.

RC said...

I repeat recipes and patterns too!
a great skirt at REI? pics please!

I read the same books over and over, always have.

I rarely do the same pattern in knitting unless I'm too tired or stressed to "learn" a new one.

If I find clothing I like, I try to buy more, too, but only because I hate shopping, and if it works, why fix it? ;)

I re-dream, if not the same dream, the same theme.

I forget what I've heard and said alot. Old-timers....

Bernadette said...

Pretty Peonies! Nice swap package and theme, too!

Hmm... repeats... I love to hear favorite music again and again, and I sometimes reread favorite books. I will also repeat favorite knitting patterns (though in a different yarn or with different trim, etc. And definitely I repeat favorite yarns!

Oh yum! Sweets! ;-) Your partner did a great job spoiling you ;-)

Kathreine said...

Oh wow thanks! I thought I was the only person who repeated myself often, and who listens to the same music over and over. Like Bernadette I often reread books I love too.

Karen said...

Oh no, you are not the only one. I'm big on repeating foods and music too. When you find something you love, you gotta stick with it!! Movies make the repeat list too - can't tell you how many times I've watched Sleepless in Seattle. Cry at the end every time too.

Sharon said...

I repeat mistakes. The other day, I worked on three different projects, and I knit with the tail on all three. Yesterday....yep, the tail once again. Sheesh! Such pretty peonies!!

Anne said...

Definitely want to know more about the great REI skirt ... and I can read things over & over again and seem to be knitting the same darn face cloth over and over again, so I guess I am a repeater too.
