Why I knit, #15

Because it’s friggin’ cold outside. And damn – hand-knitted socks sure are cozy. (And I previously rationalized this to myself by saying that I’m knitting because I’m cheap, only then I thought about how much I actually spend on yarn for the projects I knit, and it’s not that much cheaper! If at all! So I am really just knitting because it’s a fun thing to do, and because I feel pretty special when I tell people I made my socks myself)

And then also, because I played video games last night instead of being truly productive, here is a meme I created myself:

Ten random things

1. Magazines subscribed to – Cabinet, GOOD

2. Aside from knitting, my favorite pasttimes are – reading, painting, and writing

3. If I were not a designer (insert your own profession in place of designer), I would be – a cosmologist, provided someone could teach me the computational part first

4. I am irrationally worried about – flesh-eating bacteria

5. If I were the opposite sex – I’d still have long hair

6. The thing I miss most about childhood is – the ability to play-act un-selfconsciously

7. I like to collect – old books, vinyl figurines, old candid photographs (like from the turn of the century, and not portraits) and well-designed clothing tags

8. Though I’ve never been there, I feel inexplicably homesick for – India

9. I’ve never really liked to eat – peanuts (ew)

10. When I have nightmares, they’re usually about – zombies

Woohoo! Go at it.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
