Holy Cripe. Thanks for visiting my blog, and now I read your 50 ever so interesting things, and I see that we must share about 90% of the same DNA. Scary, really. Quite scary. Glad we "met" in an eerie sort of way. I'm all into eerie and scary right now -- it must be the Halloween season getting to me or something! -- Norma of Now Norma Knits

Hello - I keep checking to see if you have inserted the GTA KNit Blog Code onto your site. Once you do this, I will add you to the ring.

Lisa,

Can you prove that you can knit with your toes? A picture perhaps?

You're right we do seem to have a lot in common. I have been meaning to update my "about" page because I keep reading on
other's blogs things that apply to me as well. I must start writing them down. PBS and TVO has been a little bereft of the "Brit Fix" of late, non?
