A Little More of Me...

I saw this on Stephanie's blog and though I would give it a try. Sometimes I am impressed by these little internet diddies.. for those that know me, you'll be able to tell why! And, yes, my birthday is Leap Day.. go on, laugh, but hey, when you are all 80, I'll only be 20 :) (well, at least in an official aging system sort of way).

Your Birthdate: February 29

You have the mind of an artist, even if you haven't developed the talent yet.
Expressive and aware, you enjoy finding new ways to share your feelings.
You often feel like you don't fit in - especially in traditional environments.
You have big dreams. The problem is putting those dreams into action.

Your strength: Your vivid imagination

Your weakness: Fear of failure

Your power color: Coral

Your power symbol: Oval

Your power month: November


So, who out there is stressed out by all the holiday knitting? Last year I did hardly any holiday knitting; however, this year is different. I think I have around 14 projects to finish before mid-late December, which is why I am starting to really crack down!

Just a note for those of you who want proof... here is what our dining room table SHOULD look like:



Here is what it looks like now. Please note that the large J.Crew bag is full of yarn. Now, who is kidding who?!

I love it. You should have seen my "office" before the major clean this weekend. Yarn disaster. Those little tid bits are fun - thanks for doing it.

PUH Lease - you knit so fast Dani you'll be done over Thanksgiving turkey!

This is why I am not even thinking about more than a very few knitted gifts this year. NEXT year though I will be in serious trouble - everyone let me off the hook since it hasnt quite been a year Im knitting LOL

Well, if I had 14 holiday knits happening, my table (and the rest of the house) would look twice as cluttered.

Oh dear, get going girly! I have decided no one is getting knits this year, it is just too stressful

Good luck with all of the holiday knits! I decided not to do any this year... I kind of miss it, but there are just not enough hours in the day!

Take care~

I know exactly what you mean about the holiday knitting... I actually considered not going to DB's family's house for T'Giving to give myself that whole day to knit. (Wouldn't go over too well, huh?)

There's a Holiday Knitalong going on that I just found out about today if you're interested (http://knitmamaknit.blogspot.com/2005/11/holiday-countdown-kal.html) - I figure I can use all the support I can get!

And I just bought up your skein of "Sweet Dreams" for yet another Holiday Knit - so, so pretty - it was exactly what I was looking for!!

Ummm... Isn't that what your table *always* looks like unless there's food being actively consumed on it?

Don't lie to your public, Dani.
