I've been tagged

Megan tagged me.

Here is what I have to do....List 7 Random Facts about Me

Here are the rules (and they must be posted to your blog).
Link to the person’s blog who tagged you (see above). List seven random and/or weird facts about yourself. Tag seven random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. Let each person know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog and also so they can look at your blog and not tag the same people all over again!

1. I probably only watch about 20 hours of TV a year.
2. I am obsessive about my car.
3. I love all kinds of food, but my favorites are greens(mustard, collard,turnip, spinach,etc)
4. I have 7 quilt projects going right now. No telling how many knit projects.
5. I love dolls.
6. I despise avocados.
7. I am still in contact with my high school friends.

I am not going to tag anyone. If you want to play, have fun.

Spring Shawl Surprice

Just a quick update. Clue 4 finished 1-28. I have really enjoyed knitting this. If the weather would cooperate I could probably get a better picture.

Boring Sunday

I have finally succumbed to the crud that is going around. I guess it is inevitable when everybody you come into contact with is hacking. I have been knitting on my SSS and I am almost done with clue 4. I'll post a picture when I finished. I have been looking for things for all my swap partners. I love trying to figure out what different people would love. I have to post one off tomorrow. Hope y'all have a great week.

Spring Shawl Surprice

Clue 2 finished. This is a challenging knit for me. Clue 1 went pretty fast but clue 2 is where you start knitting pattern on every row. It was confusing at first but by the time I got to the end it was starting to go pretty. Clue 3 should go pretty fast. I am loving this. I just need to catch up. I would have been okay, but I knit 2/3 of Clue 1 and decided I didn't like my yarn so I had to go to my LYS and get some more. Hope you all are having a great weekend. The sun is shining here.

Knitting and such

No pictures today. I have been working on my Spring Shawl Surprice. I was almost finished with Clue one when I decided I did not like the look of the lace. Back to the store and now I using Malabrigo lace. I really like this yarn. I have been trying to organize my room LOL I do not know if it will ever be just like the picture in my head. Too much yarn and fabric. I love to sew and knit but two stashes is almost too much. Right now I am working on a couple of quilts and a French sewn baby dress for a friend. I forgot how much I really enjoy that kind of sewing. I hope everyone is having a good new year. Pictures next time.
