About Me

Knitter, Mom, Massage Therapist, Inventor, Dreamer

I knit obsessively and am currently writing a knitting book. (I know, I know, who isn't??)

I love chocolate and anything sweet. I need to exercise more, too. (Imagine that!)

I read a lot and favor scary/thriller type books. I am also currently enamored of Christopher Moore. His book Lamb was hysterical!

Favorite Music

Anything but techno.

I love classic rock and music from the 80's. And disco. And country. Oh, oh! and alternative rock. The blues. Love the blues. See, I like different stuff.

I'm not that into jazz or really obscure stuff.

Favorite Movies

The Philadelphia Story, The Princess Bride, The Usual Suspects, Gross Pointe Blank. (I don't have DVD's of any of them!) Too many to list, I watch a LOT of movies.

Favorite Television

Lost, The Rachel Ray Show, Heroes, Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents (the black and white ones, not the ones from the 80's)

Favorite Crafts

Knitting, Crochet

I'm crazy over hand-dyed yarn. My current favorites are Fearless Fibers and the Plucky Knitter over at etsy.com

I prefer natural fibers but am not opposed to other types. I am, however, absolutely done with the whole novelty, fluffy, eyelashy yarn thing.



Color - Red (although most of my clothes are blue and green). I prefer jewel tones. I don't like pastels. If dark chocolate brown is mixed with one pale color (pink, lt. blue or lavender) - that's a pastel I can appreciate! I'm not a big fan of purples, oranges or yellows but I'm not vehemently opposed to them either! (Vague, much??)

Season - Spring

Scents - anything citrusy. I especially like Grapefruit scent. I'm not crazy about anything really overpowering. Light, fresh scents are good.

Food - I'll eat just about anything. I'm a sugar junky and prefer milk or dark cholcolate over white. The only thing I can think of that I don't like is asian snacks (I find those sesame snacks and rice cracker snacks gross!).

Wish List

My Wish List:

Any knitting notions: small tape measures, stitch markers, gauge check thingies

I love unique T-shirts. I like the feminine, fitted kind but size XL or XXL. I like them fitted but not tight. Not crazy about the big, sloppy boy T-shirt look, y'know?

Chococat anything!

Anything from Etsy.com. Favorite Etsy stores: photoglassworks sweetheartsinner pabloalto goodsoapworks brown bag soaps fearless fibers the plucky knitter maui yarns MaryMo annejulie

Dream Wish List

My Dream Wish List:

First Edition Copy of "Lamb" by Christopher Moore



Religious Items

I do NOT knit baby stuff

I don't use candles

I don't use make-up. Unless you consider lip balm to be make-up. I also don't use perfume.

I'm not crazy about anything really girly. Feminine is fine, frills and hearts set my teeth on edge.

Comment: I've always wanted some Scout's Swag yarn but never had the opportunity, now you send a skein in the swap. Lucky me! Thank you so much, the colorway is seriously perfect. Now I have to figure out what pattern to use to best show off the lovely colors. Thanks also for the stitch saver, that's a really cool tool. The book is a lovely surprise as well. Thanks again for being a great partner and I hope you join my other swaps in the future!!

Comment: beautiful yarn! and you sent me TWO patterns instead of one! THANK YOU!

Comment: Thanks, Ruth, for the lovely lace weight. I have been getting more and more interested in making more lace for myself...the last shawl I made was snapped up by my daughter....maybe I'll get to keep the shawl I make of this yarn. Thanks for the packet of SOAK, too. I've been wanting to try it for some time.
