TAG!

Nush tagged me, so here goes!

Four movies you would watch over and over:
Amelie
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Moulin Rouge
Serenity

Four places you have lived:
Milton Keynes
Guildford
Richmond
Manchester

Four TV shows you love to watch:
Firefly
Shameless
I'm really not a TV person, so the things I watch most often are:
BBC Breakfast news
Kerrang radio on freeview

Four websites I visit daily:
Craftster.org
LJ friends page
My Gmail
Yarn Harlot

Four places you have been on vacation:
North east America & Canada (which was far superior to the US! ;D)
Athens
Paris
Wales - particularly Aberdovey (my favourite beach in the world) and Candleston in Methyr Mawr, where I LARP

Four of my favourite foods:
Cheese, especially crumbly local Lancashire, bowland, appledore, and any strong cheddar, Afon Cleddau is a great example, and is wonderful with red bell pepper jelly. Brie and cranberry rocks too... mmmmm... cheese... ooh - macaroni cheese
Chocolate, particularly baking with it, my brownies are wonderful :D
Garlic. In anything, or just roasted.
Mild, creamy curries, especially if they are from either The Village in Rochdale or a fantastic curry house in Harrogate
Generally things people have cooked for me are wonderful. My housemate & I regularly indulge in experimental cookery, where we just concoct munchies from the contents of the fridge and cupboard. They always rock! Sometimes in an 'oh my, what were we thinking of..?' way, but hey!

Four places I would rather be right now:
With my boyfriend in Birmingham
At the gigs/clubs I'm going to this weekend
At home, crafting, with an endless supply of time & resources
Aberdovey, wraped up in lots of warm clothes, jumping off sand dunes and roasting sausages in a fire pit.

Four bloggers I am tagging:
I don't know any bloggers who've not done it yet, so I tag you all!

Madness... they call it madness...

I think I'm mad!

I've been knitting for 2 weeks now. I can cast on, while follwing instructions. I can knit, purl, and m1 increase (most of the time).

I've decided to join the Knitting Olympics - during the 16 days of the winter olympics (2pm on February 10th until the flame goes out on February 26th) I'm going to be knitting a pair of kneewarmers. Cabled kneewarmers. Probably on DPNs. Eeek!



Wish me Luck. Or join me!

I'll take photos of my yarn tonight!

Beginning

I've got so many projects that I've made over the winter months, including Christmas crafting, that I really should put the projects fro them somewhere, so I'll update this later with all of them.

For now, hello!
