Meme Time!

So Sandy tagged me!
But first: The rules!

1: Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.

2: People who are tagged, write a blog post about their own 8 random things, and post these

3: At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and include their names.

4: Don't forget to leave them a comment and tell them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

Here you go! This is going to require a LOT of thinking.

1. I am a self taught knitter. One day I decided to knit an I have been on a roll ever since!

2. I hate corn. Canned corn, corn on the cobb, corn chowder, anything corn, I can not eat. I'm getting sick just thinking about it! But I do like tortilla chips!

3. I am allergic to shellfish. I feel the same way about shellfish as I do corn.

4. I can not knit on 1 project at a time. I need variety and working on several projects gives me that.

5. Flavor of Love, Charm School and I Love New York are some of my favorite shows. I get such a good laugh from them!

6. I like chocolate in many forms, but I hate chocolate ice cream.

7. Purple is my favorite color. All shades of purple actually! I can't get enough of it! I have purple sneakers, sandals, boots, you name it, I have it in purple.

8. I can't think of anything else! LOL! It was hard coming up ith 7!

I am tagging Adrienne and Rachel and whoever else wants to do this meme. Please leave a comment letting me know you did so I can check out your responses!

I have also started knitting with the STR in Watermelon Tourmaline. More on that later!

Happy Knitting!!!

Woo Hoo!!

Finally, an FO!!

Pattern: Baby Sweater from Knitters Almanac
Yarn: GGH 50% cotton 50% acrylic "Cotton Candy"
Needles: Addi turbo sz 4
Started: April 7, 2007
Finished: May 18, 2007

The pattern was very well written and I will most likely knit it again! From start to finish, it only took about 6 hours. I only worked on it during my spare time, which was few and far between!

Woo Hoo!!!! It's OTN and that's all that matters! Since I don't have a recipient, it will probably sit in the bottom of my knitting basket until I give it away!

I have heard (read) so many blogs talking about Socks That Rock yarn, so I decided to take the plunge. I placed an order on Wednesday and it came today!

I ordered Watermelon Tourmaline and Mustang Sally. I have to admit, this yarn is beautiful! I can't wait to start knitting!!!

I was tagged by Sandy with a meme, but I'll do that tomorrow!

Hapy Knitting!!
