I've been tagged

So this is my very first tag from Dana:

n. pl. id·i·o·syn·cra·sies
A structural or behavioral characteristic peculiar to an individual or group.

Write down five of your own idiosyncrasies. Then, if you wish, tag five people to do the same.

1. I absolutely hate the word "bubbles".

2. In any store I walk around feeling and touching every fabric that I possibly can

3. I'm constantly making lists to get organized and then constantly loosing them in my papers.

4. I want to live in Hazzard County

5. I work on cars and I knit (I've confused alot of men on this one)

And in knitting news:


Coming along on Butterfly. I've knit about 2 1/2" of the body already. It's moving along a bit more quickly then I thought. I guess because I usually use very small needles with the kidsilk haze and this project uses size 8's. I originally thought I might wear this for my cousin's wedding on August 26th, but there is no way it will be finished by then. Plus I still need to shop for an affordable vintage slip. I did a little bit of looking around for one this weekend, but I only came across a couple of dresses that begged me to purchase them. I'm sure that I could find something in NYC easy enough - but I don't really feel like paying $100-150 for a slip that someone wore 30 years ago! So all the searching must wait for the weekends when I am in reasonibly priced New Jersey.

Butterfly looks awesome! I hope I get to see it tomorrow :)

a $150 lacey vintage slip is not a terrible price from what I've seen. the crazy fools. yeah, go to your jersey thrift stores. and if you find lots and lots for mere dollars I'm sure you can find *someone* to sell them to.

Sigh. I so have to hunt down that magazine now and try that pattern. It looks just gorgeous and seems to go faster than the Hush-hush I started (from Knitty). Probably the needle size, like you said.

Butterfly is looking so pretty! What a good idea to put a vintage slip underneath. I have been wondering what on earth would work under that.
