what’s to do but post a meme?
posted by soe 12:11 pm

I like to read knitting blogs. (Rudi is gasping with shock here…)

Today, I was reading Amanda‘s weekly Yarn Aboard 2 update which led me to Redhead Ramblings, who linked to a contest sponsored by Heatherly at YarnYenta using a meme devised by Jody at JavaJem.

I like a contest as much as the next person but usually I only discover them after they’re over and someone is proudly displaying their prize. So this time, while there’s still time, I’m quickly hopping on the bandwagon….

1. Where is your favorite knitting spot?

Lying on the couch.

2. If you suddenly could never knit again (shudder), what would you do instead?

Go back to reading. My reading has definitely suffered since I took up knitting. Conceivably I would also have to devote more time to contemplating blog entries since I couldn’t fall back on knitting content and memes when I’m feeling lazy on a Saturday morning…

3. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

Oooh, this is so hard. I’d love to go so many places. But I think I’d really like to go to the south of France, to Provence, because I’ve enjoyed Peter Mayle’s books so much. Other places that I’d like to go — home to New England, anywhere I have friends, over to visit the extended family in the British Isles, and other places I’ve never been, like Australia, Denmark, western Canada, Hawaii, Paris, India, someplace they have penguins…

4. When you were little, what did you want to do “when you grew up?” Are you doing it?

My childhood diary is buried in some box in my folks’ basement, but I know that in third grade I came up with a whole list of things I intended to be. I don’t remember them all, but the list did include writer, farmer, and vet. I am none of those things, but I do write some (although not about what I’d like) to earn a living. I believe I also told Mum at one point that I’d like to buy a big old farm house and invite orphans, homeless people, and stray animals to live there with me. Pretty much I’ve only followed through on the stray cat portion of that, which is good because those orphans would have to sleep in the bathtub here in the Burrow.

5. What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Cookie dough. Cookies and cream. Raspberry with chocolate swirl. Cool Britannia. Chocolate chip. Mmmmmmmmmmmm…. Excuse me while I go look for the ice cream scoop….

Good for you getting in on the fun before the contest is over! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you!
