When I first started this, I thought it might reveal something. What? I don't know, maybe some deep, hidden secret that I didn't even know about myself. It turned out to be not as interesting as I thought. Well, at least now I can see that I have knit most of the things I have wanted to.

Yeah, I was lying a bit when I said interesting. Maybe you should add some extras for anyone who half inches it from you? Surely everyone would embolden knitting in the nude, voodoo knitting, maybe less so knitting with yak or shearing their own sheep / alpaca... Bring on the extras!

(half inched = pinched)

It's just a list in the end, isn't it? But it's fun to see what you've accomplished.

Your Original designs graphic is really nice, btw!

You rock!

I'm glad you sing to your pets.
Making up silly songs is one of my hidden talents... shhh! don't tell anyone!

Becca said...

It's just a bunch of uglyography to me.....

Gina said...

I'd amend the whole knitting with dog/cat hair to something you've already done. You own two dogs and a cat. I'm sure their hair has slipped into your knitting at some point without your knowledge.
And you when get around to knitting up a pair of arm warmers, I wouldn't be adverse to a pair...

Brigitte said...

Um...I don't think I could knit with cat hair. Just...kinda gross.

Linen, huh? What's it like?
