Four Things from Crazy Aunt Purl

One of my favorite blogs to read is Crazy Aunt Purl. She just did this meme. I thought it looked like a fun one to do so here goes. Yea, I know....more useless information about me! But sometimes I just don't have a lot of time to create something new and exciting for the blog and these sort of fill in for me.

NOTE: Before I give you the meme, I thought I would share a couple of things with you. First, my two granddaughters live on the big island near Pahoa, Hawaii. When I heard that an earthquake had hit the island I was naturally very concerned. Happily I had an email from the oldest and everything is ok where they live. I know there are others with connections to Hawaii and I hope all your loved ones and friends are ok, too.

Second, I actually got out yesterday and went to Michael's. They had a big yarn event....just what I need, right??!! More yarn! I was good and only bought three skeins and a crochet magazine. But the best part was getting to see my friend, Kathy, who teaches knitting, crochet, and beading at the store. She is very talented. You might enjoy visiting her blog and if you do be sure to check out her patterns for the knitting loom. There's also a link to her blog over there on the right's Knitting Muse.

Now on to the meme....

  1. ooooo...The Princess Bride! Some friends and I were just having this discussion about how we never get tired of that movie. (And neither does my husband!)

  5. If I hadn't already done this one way back when I'd have borrowed it, but it was fun to read your answers!
