The Adventures of Yarn Martian!

Erin, my friend from the yarn store, and I went out for coffee and knitting on Monday afternoon. I kept jumping from project to project while she worked on her scarf. After realizing I wasn't going to be able to cast on loosely enough for my first sock, I decided to take a break from the knitting. I stuck two of my DPNs in the cake of green Cascade 220 and Yarn Martian was born...

I'm so proud of my creation!

Until next time...

Coffee and cashmere,

I've Been Tagged!

And I never thought the day would come. I've never been well known on the internet for anything, but finally dear Kaya from Sisterly Knits tagged me for this lovely meme.

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

And now for my seven random facts...

1. Eating sugary or carb-filled stuff, especially peanut butter, right before bed gives me nightmares.

2. I went to Catholic school for almost nine years, and I wore uniforms for two.

3. My room is NEVER clean, and sometimes I hate to admit that this really does bug me once in a while.

4. When I was a baby, I was diagnosed with JA, or Juvenile Arthritis, which is technically an auto-immune disease. It's in remission now though, and hopefully it will never return.

5. I used to have Shirley Temple curls when I was little, but I cut my own hair at the age of four and my curls just never came back.

6. I hate to throw stuff out, so I have way too much random stuff, usually trash or other useless crap, around my room.

7. I've been webdesigning since I was in sixth grade, and as high school went on, I sadly started to move onto other things so I haven't done much with any HTML coding in ages.

I'm going to tag Abby, Sarah, Allie, Genuine, Patrick, Amber and Melanie
