I've been tagged. . . . .

Jennifer (NuttyIrishmanKnits) tagged me :-o I'm not really very good at doing these things but seeing as most of you may not read my daily blog and not know much about me (and I have no new knitting pictures to share) I will try to think of 7 things to post - not necessarily 'weird', but just stuff about me! Here goes:

1. I am English! Born 44 years ago in a town in the North of England called Sunderland. I am the youngest of 6 but have a twin brother (who is older than me by 20 minutes!). I moved 'south' to Bury St Edmunds in 1987. Met my USAF guy in 1995 while he was stationed in England, married in 1996 and moved to Maryland with hubby in 1998.

2. We moved to Austin, Texas in 2004 and I became a US Citizen.

3. I learned to knit when I was 8 years old. My mam taught me, and thankfully she had the patience of a saint. I think if I had to learn to knit now I would never stick with it and would get frustrated very easily (as I do now if I even try a new method like continental or a different kind of cast on!).

4. I want to finish something before I even start it - especially where knitting is concerned. I can't stop casting on for new projects and easily get bored with something if it's not knitting up fast enough.

5. I'm a true 'Libran'. I like balance and harmony in my life, do not like confrontation AT ALL and I'm very romantic. Love pink and girly stuff.

6. I'm 'English' but I don't like drinking tea! I remember 'choking once when I was little and drinking a warm cup of tea, it must have gone down the wrong way. After that I just didn't want to drink it any more and as I got older even the smell of it made me shudder! I'm a coffee gal but don't drink a lot of it. Usually just one or two cups in the morning, I never make any in the afternoon. Will occasionally indulge in a Starbucks.

7. I think I'm addicted to Ravelry and reading knitting blogs!!!! Need I say more ;-)

I don't like to tag people so I will just do as some others do and leave this an 'open tag'. If you want to share 7 things about yourself leave me a comment to let me know. I still feel kind of knew to the knitting blog world and would love to get to know you better.

Sorry. I just tagged you with a book meme. No worries, if you aren't up for another one. I can't imagine that you don't like tea??????

i would love to sit and chat with you over a cup of, ah, COFFEE. i could probably sit and listen to your accent all afternoon.

ooh, memes are always interesting. : ) i've done this one a few differnt times, so i'm going to pass, but if you search "weird things" in the little search box on my blog, i think there are about three relevant lists. : )
