Getting To Know Each Other

I feel lucky to be a part of such an interesting and diverse group of women who genuinely
enjoy each other's company. I enjoy getting to know everyone better through the lists of
"likes".

Not in any particular order, I'll make my list my first blog post. They include:
Knitting
- a given here. I like all kinds from very challenging to brainless
Chocolate - dark
Coffee - also dark, black, flavored or not
Live Performances - concerts, theater, etc.
Water - the ocean, baths in the winter, swimming in the summer, the sound of water..........
Reading - I wish I kept up with my book club better. I'm currently enjoying "Pillars of the Earth" for the second time while looking forward to Follet's next almost-1000-pager, it's sequel. Mark gave me "Number Knitting" for Christmas which is THE gift I've asked for for a few years.
Friends and Family - I cherish our group and love it when I can spend time with folks.
Pottery
Nativities and Christmas trees
Music
- an eclectic mix of folk, 70s and 80s rock, old-time gospel, reggae, and almost anything live.
Antique Stores - I love old copper (and have a number of old copper knitting "holders")
Cuff Links and Funky Socks - some of the ways to personalize and differentiate while still wearing traditional, classic business clothes.

Also, I finished the Kathryn Alexander Color on Color Scarf today! I'm going to block it as soon as I quit typing! Elizabeth, I only have about 2 inches left on my afgan strip so I hope to finish it tonight, as well.

Enjoy the snow this evening -- safe and warm at home!

Yippee! I remembered my password so I can post...yes, a major accomplishment for me!

Greens and blues are my favorite colors, however, there isn't a Koigu colorway that I wouldn't accept. Earl Gray is my favorite tea and 94% fat free popcorn is eaten daily.

I enjoy time with my knitting friends and always look forward to the next time.

I'm a collector of fabrics, handbags, yarn, paintings, quilts...textiles in general.

Looking forward to seeing you all!
