10,000 Things You Didn't Know About Me
*I love the Wizard of Oz. I lose it every time the Scarecrow and Dorothy say GOODBYE .
*I knit this little hat in Berroco Comfort leftovers for a friends Charity hat drive. I did a seed stitch 2x2 brim, then a simple stockinette in the round, juxtaposed by a row of purling every so often, and topped off with a umbilical cord top.
*I could probably vacation the rest of my life in Wisconsin and be content.
*I am the 4th of 6 children. Middle girl.
*My favorite knit patterns are the simplest.
*I'm not a fan of KNITTING WITHOUT TEARS. (gasp!)
*I have a cell phone that I almost never answer....
*I've never conquered my coca-cola addiction.
*When I want to relax before falling asleep I think about knitting
*I can sleep anywhere, anytime. I think this is a result of never sleeping when my kids were little. I Felt anxious and constantly on guard for their lives....
*I only like home grown tomatoes.
*I didn't eat salad or vegetables until I was 20.
*I could exist soley on bread and butter.
*Circular knitting often hurts my wrist, but double points do not.
*I leave many many more comments on others blogs, but I rarely read all their comments for the day.
(there are a few exceptions)
*I speak Spanish well enough to get medical information across. I cannot tell you how to get to the airport, however, in Spanish.
*I have a water-filled pillow.
*I love naming animals. (Elaine and Babka have turned the corner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think they will make it)
*When I go out for breakfast I order meat and potatoes. Ie: Hashbrowns and a side of ham.
*I have never gotten drunk. I could though, on champagne.....
*I worry too much about being productive.....somedays I try not to plan a thing and let the day evolve...
*I am thinking of a 10,000 comment gift.....I hope I can write a pattern for you all.
I have written the pattern for the COMMENT CAP, if you would like the pattern just ask and I'll send it to you in the comments. !!! Thanks Chan for the nudge. *
