A Weird Meme and knitting pics of another FO

I was tagged by Romi for a weird meme. It's going to be hard to come up with 6 things. hehe Not really.

"THE RULES: Each player of this game starts with the "6 weird things about you." People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their comments and tell them to read your blog."

Six weird things about me
  1. I only brush my teeth with hot water. If I have to use cold they just don't feel clean enough.
  2. I check and recheck the locks before bed, and before leaving the house. A little compulsively.
  3. I check the stove a little compulsively, too.
  4. I hate hate hate grapefruit. I tried to eat half a grapefruit before every meal. (to lose weight) I couldn't do it even once. YUCK!
  5. I don't like the number 6. If I have a choice of numbers, I never pick 6. Ever! So, you only get 5 weird things. Haha!

Ok, so I tag: Rhoda, Carrie, Cindy, Kadiddly, and Zippianna! I only can come up with 5 peoples. Sorry. I broke two rules! (another compulsion of mine: rule breaking)

Ok, if you read all of that, you get to see knitting stuff. Yay!

Thank you for the wonderful comments on my hat. I'm blushing. I need to get some of those smilies so you can tell. Here are some more pics. The hat "guts", the soap in a sock, and a closer pic of the hat. I knitted the soap in a sock yesterday, it's left over SWS and Paton's Merino. I just casted on some stitches on my long options cord, and magic looped it. I watched a video online to learn the magic loop. Then, I sewed the ends up with more wool. If I was making one for a gift, or for sale, I'd kitchener the ends. As it is used, I hope it will felt.

I think this is my very first early morning post. I started this while the kids were getting ready for school, and finished it after dropping them off.

Now, I have a mountain high pile of laundry! No joke! In between loads, I'm knitting on the pinwheel. It'll be done soon, and I'll show off the whole thing!!
Knit on, knitterly peoples!!

I also only brush my teeth with hot water, but not for the same reason. I just don't like cold things, I like my water or soda at room temperature too. Hmm, maybe I should have put that one on my list?

The hat is gorgeous!

I am the opposite with brushing of the teeth. If I have to use warm water I don't feel like my mouth is clean.

The hat looks wonderful!

Deborah said...

the pics of your gorgeous hats doesn't reduce the fact that you are truly weird! LOL

Carrie said...

Beautiful hat and a great job of knitting. Now I want to do one! See what you started??? :o)

I could do that weird meme thing even though I've done it before because there are at least 6 new things to put in. Should I? Ya! of course. There's not enough fun in life and one should never turn a back on fun. It might stab you!

Tooth brushing with hot water. ick! hehe and, I'll save my weird toothbrushing for the Weird MeMe.

I love hat guts! Showing the wrong side of your knitting is gutsy, sexy, and screaming with bravado! Here here!

Mama Bear said...

Wow, take a few days off followed by a snow storm and look how much I missed!

Love the hat, and the book with the doll is priceless.

The stockings are lovely too!

I'm a hot water brusher also, cold water that early in the day is too much stim. The hat looks great! One of these days I'll stop being such a chicken and try some multi color knitting.

My step-sister once told me that she figured she should brush her teeth with hot water because, afterall, you wash your dishes with hot water. LOL!

So, now, i DO use hot water. Isn't that silly??

Your hat turned out fabulously!! And it even looks really cute too. I always look like such a dork in hats. Hee!
