It's time I do a little more than lurk. So here it is:
I'm Jeffry's other half.
I spend most of my days in a nursing home. In a different century, I could have been a court jester. (Danny Kaye made an excellent one, by the way.)
I am not well read, but I'm currently very much enjoying a jaunt through G. K. Chesterton's spy novel, The Man Who Was Thursday; it's all in a feeble attempt to read more. I love the little things, such as the way the spies use a special finger-tapping code to communicate in a dire situation, only to argue over whether or not one is poetic.
I am not well versed in drink, so the rule of thumb is to make it sweet and fruity. Ever heard of a Woo Woo?
I have been knitting avidly for over a decade, and Jeff has already surpassed me in a mere couple years. *glares in Jeff's direction*
I shall be joining you for the Leaves of Grass knitalong that starts in a mere few days!
I hesitated to join the knitalong despite "horrible nagging" because I also have grandiose visions of doing more handspinning. *cough*
I plan to use a merino/bamboo blend from Briar Rose Fibers to make the blanket version. It's called Celebration, and it looks a lot like Cascade Ecological Wool in terms of weight, but with the sheen afforded by bamboo. I have about 1800 yards, so I hope that will be enough.
It's a pleasure to join you, and I am looking forward to procrastinating with you! :)
