HSKS Questionaire

1. What Hogwarts house have you been sorted into?

2. List your three favorite double-point needle brands, including size and length.
I don't have favorite brands yet...but I like 7" metal needles (the ones I like are blue-colored and from Hobby Lobby...aluminum maybe? ;)

3. Would you like to try a new brand needle? If so, which brand? Size? Length?
Most needles would be new to me, but I prefer metal over wood or bamboo

As much as I like to stay true to the book, I really prefer the movie colors

5. If your pal decides to send candies or chocolates are there any that you don't like? Gosh, I love dark chocolate, chocolate with nuts, more chocolate, sour candies, etc. etc. but I don't like white chocolate, reeses pieces, snickers, butterfingers, or suckers

cucumber melon, fresh/outdoorsy type scents (rain, grass, etc), mint/peppermint, coffee, and all those candles/scents that smell exactly like baked goods =)

As you can so from my new badges, I'm doing the Hogwarts Sock Kit Swap. I'm really excited about it!! Yay Ravenclaw!

And the first trivia question...
Who's talking in this conversation...."There is nothing worse than death, Dumbledore!" "You are quite wrong. Indeed, your failure to understand that there are things much worse than death has always been your greatest weakness."

Answer: Voldermort and Dumbledore

Yay quizzes!!

Find out which Jane Austen Heroine you are here

According to the quiz I am Fanny Price(and with my awful memory, I can't remember who that is or which book she was in)but it means that I am...

"Quiet, shy, and analytical, you observe and feel much more than you can convey. You're patient with others to a fault; people may take advantage of your compliant nature. However, in matters of great importance to you, you will stand your ground, as you always care for your beliefs and convictions. Others view you as the standard of moral uprightness."

And, I don't want to leave my male readers ( boyfriend) out...go here to find out which Jane Austen hero you are!

Razor Cami, Take Three...

enough said ;)

I was very frustrated two days ago when I realized I'd messed it up again, but tonight I am REALLY tired and the idea of couch + knitting + a new Grey's anatomy makes me incredibly happy.

We had a work conference in Paducah (far Western Kentucky, 5 hours from here)...the drive there was uneventful...I'd even forgotten about the time change (it's in the Central Time Zone) which totally saved me from being late and gave me time to stop for breakfast...

Then coming back, I didn't pay a whole lot of attention to the directions, got to Elizabethtown, missed the road that takes you to Lexington and was all the way to Louisville before I even realized something was wrong (well...when I saw a sign that said "Louisville 17" that seemed a little wrong) was only about 30-40 miles added on to the trip, but I can't get over the ridiculousness of thinking I was getting closer and closer to Lexington and then wham!! being in Louisville. ;)

I have once again learned the lesson that I should read the entire directions before I start driving and probably look at a map...

Razor Cami, Take Two...

Well yesterday I got my yarn and circular needle (yay!) and started on my very first tank top....

actually, since I had twisted the stitches before I started the first round...I actually created my very first knitted mobius strip...oops! It was kind of interesting but not quite what I was going for ;)

So, we'll see how the second time goes...

Yarn is on its way!

Yep, I just completed my very first online yarn purchase and should be seeing my yarn early next week. I also had to get my very first circular needle (or would it be needles?), so that'll be exciting, too!

New things...

I just ordered new glasses today (not that I don't like the glasses I have, but they're four years old, my prescription has changed slightly, and I actually have eye insurance to help out with the $$) I'm hoping that they'll get in I can post an awesome picture of them and me! =) I was going to link a picture of the frames....but that would ruin the'll just have to live in suspense ;)

I am also plotting a new knitting project. It's
except I think I'm going to do it in Elann Collection Esprit, French Blue (hehe...I say that like I know what it is, when really I got the yarn idea from here) so thank you to those ladies for the wonderful ideas and knitting skills! I can't wait to make something cute for me...and something that's not a toddler sock (sometimes I get into a little bit of a rut... ;) ). I've never made a tank/shirt/anything like that before, but the pattern sounds keep your fingers crossed! (and now since I've told everyone about it, I better go get that yarn out of the "cart" and actually check out!)

I also already made my new recipe for the week--balsamic pork chops with grapes--it was okay...but not good enough to bother typing up ;) Hopefully next week's recipe will be worth sharing...

...which Grey's Anatomy character are you??

Find out here

I was very concerned that I'd end up being an Izzie (sorry if you like her, I'm not a fan) but thankfully I'm an Addison (well...not so much an adulteress, but amazingly gorgeous and intelligent, I can work with that ;) )

Edited to add...

I haven't touched the soup again since I had my first bowl. I think I may have been more impressed with the idea of the soup, rather than the soup itself...

Not that you shouldn't make it if the recipe rocks your world, but for my part, I won't be making it again.
