10 (knitting) Things About Me

  1. I don't like bobbles. I think they look nipply and sad.
  2. I don't like textured yarn. I think that my stash reflects that immeasurably.
  3. I never buy yarn, "just because." I always have a project in mind before I buy.
  4. Except sock yarn. That kind of follows me home.
  5. I find knitting lace soothing.
  6. I find blocking lace beyond soothing. Sometimes I knit lace just so I can block it when I'm feeling crummy.
  7. I don't like hearts. Despite this fact, of the three items I have designed and knit, two of them featured hearts.
  8. I like a lot of fiddle farting around in my knitting. If it's "mindless" why bother?
  9. I will knit anything from anything for a friend (there are a lot of eyelash hats floating around out there that illustrate my point beautifully!).
  10. I learned to knit on circulars, and to this day, I don't really see the point of straight needles.
There. For what it's worth, I thought this would be fun. I think I stole this meme from Grumperina. I hereby tag anyone who comes across this. Let me know if you do it, 'cause I'm nosy that way!

I'm with you on the bobbles. They look good on other people and they can keep knitting them...they just seem like a waste of time to me;)

Glad to see you back! I think we're all slowly making our way out from under the holidays. *grin*
I'm the same way about buying yarn--I've got to have an idea of what I'm going to knit. Otherwise, I can't imagine how much yarn I'd have. (It's pretty crazy as it is!)

I've snagged this meme and added it to my blog.
