Coming out to Play

It's been awhile since I've posted, but Mel tagged me for the 7 random things meme 'cause she said it was time I came out to play. I'm pretty boring and uninteresting, but, here goes.

1. I am a self taught knitter and though I can use (and have taught) many different styles of knitting, the one most comfortable and fastest for me is my original method which could probably be termed throwing with my left hand. It's been called bizarre, and painful to watch; but it works for me.

2. Even though I live in the middle of the country, I have a deep love for the ocean. There is a physical pull I feel every few years that drags me to a coastline, an almost spiritual call that needs to be answered in order to fill up the well.

3. I am a pansy fanatic! probably planting close to 9 or 10 dozen every spring. No matter where I am or who I'm with, I can't pass by a bed of them without exclaiming in a loud voice "Pansies".

4. I was born on the day I was due. My parents were shopping and it must've sounded so great and something I definitely wanted to partake in, that I made an almost immediate appearance waiting only until my mom was inside the hospital doors for about two minutes.

5. I am probably one of the shyest people you'll ever meet.

6. It can take forever for me to make a decision!

7. I've worn the same necklace every day since receiving it in college (or maybe it was before that, it was so long ago that I can't even remember). It's has a cross, anchor and heart which symbolize faith, hope and love. It serves to remind me that even when there are days without faith or love, there is always still hope.

I think every blogger I know has already done this meme, but if you're reading this and would like to play, consider yourself tagged.

You *are* one of the shyest people I've ever met, and you are also one of the most accomplished knitters I've ever met.

Those are beautiful fuschias.
