WHAT!? I've been TAGGED!?

Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blogs the 7 facts, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag 7 others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and to read your blog. I’ve been tagged by: Yarn Snob aka my buddy from across the pond :)

1- I normally hate these types of things and usually won't participate in them for love nor money. (You're lucky I love you like my cashmere, E!! (besides, since I have not been posting anything of interest lately, I feel I owe you since I have not been emailing either -- sorry sweetie!!) BUT, I am finding this quite fun :) That should tell you how bored I am ::gg::

2- My favorite thing to knit is socks, and I always have at least three pair on the needles!

3- My favorite yarn is OPAL -- BUT, that is just for patterns. I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it if they offered us more of a choice when it came to fibers. (hear that Tutto?? Like anyone from Germany would ever read MY blog -- but you never know, I've had celebs here before, so you never know!!)

4- I hate liars. There is almost nothing worse you can do to me than lie to me. I would rather hear the truth about anything from the person's mouth -- then have to hear "through the grapevine" or have them slip at a later date (which seems always happens with the people in my life anyway). It is especially annoying when the lie is about something so stupidly insignificant that telling the truth would make no difference to me anyway.

5- I, like a few others I have read about, LOVE ice cream! But, it has to be plain -- with no "hard bits" in it. I don't like anything mucking up the texture of the ice cream I am eating.

6- I am no longer able to eat my other favorite food. Reeses' Peanut Butter Cups since being diagnosed with diabetes 2 years ago.

7- I am an animal lover and would have a whole house full of them if the hubster would allow it. As it is, we have three parrots and a dog.

8- Since everyone I know well enough to send this to has already been tagged, I can't pass this along for fear of others coming after me and trying to jab me in the eyes with their knitting needles....sorry! :)

Eye Candy Tuesday

Yes, I know I am either late or early for the typical Eye Candy Friday -- but since when have I ever been typical?

Here is a shot of one of the apple trees in the back yard....the blossoms are completely gone already -- glad I snapped this while they lasted!

Long time, no post....

Since I am still not knitting, I have not had much to write lately. I have been surfing a bit, and I did make the egg above this evening @ dumpr though! What a kewl site that is -- check it out! That is a photo of some yarn that is currently about to be thrown in the garbage because it's so freeking tangled I don't know what else to do with it! It's GORGEOUS and soft and squishy and I am sick about it, but I may give it another go or two before I just toss the whole lot of it in the trash, it's making me more crazy than I already am! I hope it doesn't come to that though -- it will make a kick arse pair of socks if I can get it skeined!

I will hopefully get out of this funk soon (the arm IS feeling a little better and I am really itching to get back to knitting -- but now I'm scared since I think it was like caused by knitting to begin with, and that is going to just kill me if I have to stop forever)......we'll see. Maybe a change in position once I work up the nerve to "do it" again will help?

Only time will tell I suppose?
