Taking Care of Business

Before we get to the meme, I need to update the Buy More Yarn program with some exciting news. Missa of kpixie emailed me this weekend and said that they will match my gift of $25 to make the prize a $50 kpixie gift certificate. Isn’t that great?!? Just remember, there’s only a few days left to shop. I must receive all purchase updates by midnight on Saturday, April 1, 2006. I’ll announce the winner on Monday, April 3rd.

Okay, on to other business.

By now, you’ve all seen the meme that our buddies over at JenLa created. Here’s my two cents.

-Your finds must come from knit blogs.
-You may not use a blog for more than one item-all items must come from different sources.
-Finds can come from current entries or archives.
-You must post your answers with the title of the blogs they were found on and a link to the blog/item (permalinks where appropriate) on your blog. If no permalink is available, give us the post date.
-Do not steal anyone’s bandwidth-which means you should not hotlink pictures.
-You need to comment and let us know when you have completed this meme.

1. A blog which you think people have not discovered.
Want to read about a knitter and teacher living in Japan? Go visit Molly. She has a really cool mom, too.

2. A blog whose author lives close to you physically. Just get as close as you can, it’s all relative.
I’m so lucky to live in the Boston area, where we’re over-run with knit bloggers. But, practically in my backyard, I’ve got Martita Rampage and Maggie!

3. An unusual or weird animal picture.
Go see poor Buck Rogers after his shave and a haircut. He’s downright embarassed!

4. An entry that made you laugh and got you strange looks from family or co-workers.
The one where Stephanie tried to put boxes under her bed had me laughing out loud.

5. An idea you wish you’d thought of.
Mamacate’s Random Wednesdays. I know I’ve got “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” but it’s not nearly as cool as the random thing.

6. Something you’d like to knit.
Celtic Dreams. Here’s Cassie’s.

7. A picture of something you consider beautiful.
Judy’s garden photos are gorgeous. As are most of her other photos, too. And her yarn!

8. A blog whose author you’d like to one day meet in person.
The answer to this one is tough. I would normally have said Margene and Snow and that’s still true. So, true, in fact, that I’m going to visit them in June. So I feel like I need to pick a different blogger. One that I would love to meet but don’t yet have plans to meet. And that’s Vicki.

9. A blog of someone you have already met in person.
Oh, man, this is tough, too, because I’ve met so many bloggers already. It wouldn’t be fair to choose just one, so I’ll choose the one I’ve seen most recently. My buddy, Kathy. She came over on Sunday and Blogless Sharon and I helped her make her very first skein of yarn. Go on over and congratulate her, would you?

  1. There is no way I can compete in the Buy More Yarn sweepstakes, so I will simply bow to the winner. It’s nice to know that some people’s yarn addiction, er, fiber lust, er, prudence in stocking up is even more acute than mine.

    I may have to do this meme. Right now, I’m off to visit Kathy.

  2. Considering how hard I’ve fallen from the Stashalong wagon, I clearly would have been better off joining your Buy More Yarn Program. *sigh*

  3. I think I did pretty well in the whole buy-yarn thing, but jeez, I am nowhere even close to being in the running. Over 200 skeins of yarn in three months? Wowzer!

    Celtic Dreams is my next project–yes, I know, silly to start it in the Spring, but what can I say? I’m still looking forward to it. Lizzy B is going to, too. Want to join us?

  4. I totally should have jumped into buy more yarn. Until recently, I suffered from stash envy. (Mine was small and sad and the whole world had fab yarn.) Buying more yarn is always a great idea.

  5. Hey, you wanna make plans? Let’s start figurin’ out some plans… I’ve got Rhinebeck in my sights again, for one thing… have you written that in on your calendar yet???

    Oh, but wouldn’t I love to visit you in Boston, too…

  6. I had a nice funny comment all planned out but as soon as I saw ‘Rhinebeck’ my brain emptied of all rational thought…

  7. I love these memes! I am so going to have to do one, but I’m too distracted by all the links in the ones I’m reading!

  8. I don’t think I woulda done good in your buying yarn contest. I think some of them folk have bought more yarn than I have in my whole stash! Wow!
    Loved reading your meme! Good stuff.

  9. Thanks for the mention, Carole! I’m not a big fan of memes, but I’ve been enjoying this one immensely…finding lots of interesting new sites!
    (Just what I need….lol)

  10. Thanks for the nice mention! I agree, I do have a pretty cool mom. 🙂 Sorry to read about your daughter. I hope she’s back on her feet soon!!

  11. Oh, by the way, I am still buying yarn, just not reporting it. The obnoxious gluttony of yarn hoarding has become embarassing, and I can not show it, share it, or speak of it. let’s just say that I was in the running for a while. And even if I WERE to win, I wouldn’t take the prize, I wouldn’t need it. I’d donate it to the person with the LEAST amount.
