Blogstalking Returns: Who Am I?

I'm a bit of a latecomer to this round of Blogstalking, and the problem with that is that I have seen so many great examples of people explaining who they are - I don't want to copy anyone, so I am going to keep this simple.

I am:

Accident-prone * Analytical * Arachnophobe * Auntie * Baker * Bibliophile * Bossy * Canadian * Casual * Housekeeper * Chief Cook and Bottle washer * Creative * Cynical * Daughter (and -in-law) * Etymologist * Expert * Foreigner * Friend * Gardener * Generous * Granddaughter * History Buff * Knitter * Linguist * Mom * Obsessive-compulsive * Perfectionist * Pollyanna * Sarcastic * Short-tempered * Sister * Smart ass * Verbose * Wife * World Traveler

Okay, the linguist in me is grating at the fact that some of those words need articles in front of them, but I am trying to get a handle on the obsessive-compulsive part and leave it be. I also know that some of those traits are contradictory... but I can't help that.

***********************************

Here's the new skein - I'm calling it 'Over-ripe Raspberries':



This was a combination of Wiltons black and burgundy - and if you look really closely at the black part, you would see that it is more like dark green/dark burgundy/dark purple. I am not sure what I would have to do to get a truer black.

And here is Willow sporting the hat I finished last night whilst watching 'K*Ville' (not a bad show - I will probably watch it again):



I *love* how my self-striping dyeing is turning out - yay me! (And only two ends to weave in for stripes!)

Randy, are you a blogstalker? I think not.

Cute post!!

Robin said...

A friend and I have decided that we are "wordies," in the same way that many people are "foodies." I see that you, too, and a wordie. I like that.

Your self-striping yarn and the model are both as cute as socks on a cat.

Jo said...

Sorry about that, folks - Randy has gone bye-bye. I thought the word verification was supposed to take care of that sort of thing...

olpp said...

SO great!! I love "wordies"! The best example I heard was "theory-encrusted treatises." I say that out loud to myself every now and then!

Your child is so unbelievably CUTE!!!

Awww, I was hoping Randy the spammer was going to join our ring!

kemtee said...

Cool. I like the random word flow description thingee!

Mom said...

How 'bout "under-ripe blackberry"?

Zonda said...

Love that yarn! Great work and your stripes look good on the hat too!! Hehe. I'm not the only accident prone one. ;)

Lauren said...

yay for similar taste in books. I haven't gotten that far in the Kushiel series, just through the second book.

Cool list, and I love the over ripe rasberry yarn!

Krista said...

How nice to meet a Delaware knitter! Thanks for the comment...once I find my USB cord I will be updating both Ravelry and my blog...please stay in touch!

Holly said...

Your yarn looks so great, and what a cute model!

I can join you in many of your clubs, but the first and foremost is accident-prone - perhaps we both can be fitted for bumpers!

Ed said...

What a lot of things you are. Surely it would be simpler to just say that you're complicated.

Jo said...

**SNORT**

Thanks, Ed. Now my whole office thinks I am a nutcase for squawking out loud!

lisa said...

Awesome job on the dying...very impressive. You are an artist :)

Great post--you picked great words.

I didn't see what Randy posted but am glad he's gone.

The striping is perfect (and the hat looks great on one of the most adorable little girls on the planet!)

Thank you for putting the word cloud in alphabetical order. Now I don't have to. You have very good color sense. Nice dye jobs.

Ooh, I love that over-ripe raspberry--if you were to think of a black raspberry, which is clearly the best raspberry, then it could be "ripening raspberry." But perhaps that's a little twee? I too, am a sarcastic, casual, perfectionist Pollyanna! And I share about two-dozen more of your traits.
