Meme

I took this from A Pinch of Knit and a Dash of Purl.

1. I’ve been hooked on the needles since: I taught myself to knit (with the help of others) a few years ago, 2004.


2. I’m still a virgin, but not for long: Fair Isle. I don't know, that I even like the look of Fair Isle but I want to at least know I am capable of doing it.



3. She’s crafty - she gets around…to : KNIT. I am basically just a knitter in terms of needle crafts but I have scrap-booked a little, and made cards and such before.


She’s crafty - she’s always down…for: Photographing something, someone, some kitten in my house. I love my cameras and I can’t go a day without taking a picture.


She’s crafty - she’s got a gripe…about : How ineffective most instructional books are. There have been times I have read a book on a certain technique and just not understood the method, and then I open a different book a year later or something and it is plain as day. I just wish that knitting instruction books made more sense. Or that there was some standardization or something.



She’s crafty - and she’s just my type. What type of knitter are you? I clutter knitter. I have a jumble of UFO’s on sticks and a jumble of yarns I am not sure how I acquired (can we say buy when you don’t need to) and all my knitting stuff is unorganized to the average eye but to me it all makes sense…sort of.



4. I’m dying to try: NORO! It’s so pricey though, but man it seems to be all the rage.


5. I gravitate towards colors like: I like dark colors, Black, Grey, Blue, Purple, but I am trying to lighten my spectrum up a bit.

6. My most cherished possession (kids, pets, family don’t count) is: My Ankh jewelry. I have always been obsessed with Ancient Egyptian art, culture, history. And I have a bunch of ankh’s I wear daily and I would hate to be caught dead without them. I don’t know why the symbol just grabs me.


7. I’m stuck on an island, what am I reading? I like mysteries, true crime, some science fiction, knitting stuff of course, and letters from famous people to other famous people.


8. If I were about to be executed and I was offered a last meal , I’d be dining on:


Anything with meat (and I means BEEF), cheese, sauce, and bread. And fried (my favorite food group is fried). And desserts with caramel, or cheesecake, or lime flavor.

9. Music to knit by: I watch TV when I knit mostly.


10. I have a crush on: My kitten Revan, I am so in love with him.


10a. I am in lust with: Tristan of course.


11. Least favorite celeb: Britney Spears

12. Choose:


Brad Pitt or Johnny Depp? Brad Pitt
Madonna or Janet Jackson? Madonna (But I used to love Janet until she got crazy)
June Cleaver or Peg Bundy? Neither, not my type of women
Jackie or Marilyn? Marilyn Monroe (but I like both in different ways)
Love or Money? Well, I have love, so let's say money. =)
Brains or Looks? Brains
Math or English? English
Cat or Dog? Dog (usually but I recently gotten kittens and I love them)
Leader or follower? Leader
Beer or Champagne? Neither both are gross to me, not much of a drinker unless there is midori present.



13. My favorite smell? Tristan’s skin. There are times it is just crazy and I must sniff him to death.



14. Not many people know this about me: Sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes I don’t.
15. My hidden talent is: I used to be a great dancer, then I got hurt, and then I gained weight, so no more dancing.

Great meme! My least fav celeb would have to be Paris Hilton. Really, what is she good for?

Aren't they pretty much the same girl? Both famous for being talentless and willing to show off their junk! Ewwwww....gross. You can add Lyndsey Lohan to that clone group as well.
