A gift and a Meme

I got some great yarn! I won a contest on a blog. Brynne sent this to me. Thank you, Brynne! I love it! It's Koigu Premium Merino. So, what do I knit with it? Give me some ideas, guys! Seriously! (I mean it! Tell me some great ideas!)

Like the sparkles? I found out about RockYou.com from a post on knit 1 blog too site. Pretty cool!

I also got tagged for a meme. Heather and Rhoda both got me! It might take a bit of thinking to come up with something different about me. I'm pretty boring lately. I'm going to give it a go, though.

Here is what Heather tagged me with:
Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blogs the 7 facts, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and to read your blog.

Here's what Rhoda tagged me with:
Here’s how to play…
1. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves

2. People who are tagged write a blog post about their own 8 random things and post these rules
3. At the end of your blog you need to tag 8 people and post their names
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment and tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Here is my list:

  1. I should be getting ready to leave the house right now.
  2. I get to teach knitting to 11 kids later today.
  3. I have a new nickname: Sharky, since I'm so good at finding sharks' teeth.
  4. I love Spring flowers, but Summer is my favorite season.
  5. I don't really like ice cream.
  6. I don't like the number 6.
  7. I love dark, dark chocolate.
  8. I love thunderstorms, but they scare my dog and cat half to death.

That was tough. When I have to think of things, my mind goes blank. I have no idea who to tag.

Carrie, Kat, Sherry, Momo, Valerie, Kadiddly, Janice, Mindy.

Hope that's ok, guys. If you don't feel like playing along ~ no biggie! :)

Well, I've gotta run! Knit on, y'all!!

Hey Sharky!
So funny that's your new nickname --- of course, I love it!

Mindy said...

Koigu is awesome! Socks or a hat or fingerless mitts or ... okay I may not be much help there.

I will be playing, thanks for the tag.

Romi said...

Love the sparkles! Hee.

Nora said...

Happy (belated Mother's Day). Love the sparkles photo - must try it! The Koigu? Why, socks of course. :)

Valerie said...

Congrats on your win! That's awesome and the yarn looks great! I would play but I have already played on and I don't think I can come up with that many random things about myself.

Momo said...

8 Things, I think I can do that, Sharky!

Carrie said...

Sharky. Heh. I finished the meme, thanks! It was quick and easy blog fodder for the day. See you at school!
