What's your age?

You Are 24 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

Self Portrait Sunday -

Only one day late this time! And showing off my new Hufflepuff scarf

Sunday, January 14, 2007


Yesterday was a complete squee day. The icy weather held off and I was able to drive to Fort Smith to meet up with Rosemary and Kelly of Fangirlish podcasts for some time together. This is not something that happens often because I am the halfway point between these two over a distance of about 600 miles. But they had a surprise for me and treated me to the movie Eragon and dinner at Bravo's -- a wonderful Italian restaurant on Rogers Avenue! Good traditional style Italian cooking, great service and atmosphere.

Having read the book and heard from others, I think it helped quite a bit that I did not go in expecting the movie to follow the book. They did change things. However, on it's own, as just a dragon saga, it was very good. Great flight scenes and Sapphira as a baby dragon was awesome!

Kelly and Rosemary ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To Quote the Yarn Harlot - Freaking Muggles!

It seems that a bank underestimates the quantity of knitters there are in this country ...... in this world. Some very creative ladies at Blue Moon Fiber Arts came up with a package for a sock club. This was not a new idea just for this year but had been something they sold previous years.

This bank took it upon themselves to decide that this could not be a real moneymaking business venture but a scam and you can read the gorey details in the blog of a famed Canadian knitter and published author.

It amazes me that the bank could think that there are so few knitters out there that would want to buy yarn and even have it come with the pattern as well. Obviously that's why there are no yarn stores around this nation.^_- I have to wonder, as did the blogger's sister, would this have happened to a male owned business?

Support Blue Moon Fiber Arts if at all possible. Knitter or crocheter? Order yarn, pattern, books. Not a crafter? Surely someone you love is and they will be having a birthday won't they? And spouse and significant others, if your partner knits or crochets, you know all too well how much they love yarn....contribute to their stash.
