Monday is Meme Day

Deee-lovely Holly over at Hollyarns tagged me the other day with the 5 Little-Known Things About Me Meme.

5 Things You Probably Didn't Know about Me

Hinge of a fold I collected in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico.1. I never dot my i's when writing in cursive.

2. I have a rock collection, mostly ones that I have collected.

3. I have a certain set of books that I reread most every year: Emma, Pride and Prejudice, Enders Game, Harry Potter 1 and 4, Far from the Madding Crowd, Jude the Obscure, Return of the Native, The Desert Smells Like Rain, Red Mars, Neuromancer, All Quiet on the Western Front, Animal Dreams.

Fingerless mitts from Weekend Knitting4. I own more than 10 coats.

5. Out of all the patterns in all the knitting books I own, I have only knit one pair of fingerless mitts. (Well, I knitted a kitty hat from the original S'N B, but my gauge was totally different and so I had to completely redo the pattern. So I don't think this counts.)

Who should I tag? Well if you want to participate, then consider yourself it!

oooh, I feel so special--dee-lovely. Well, you are the sugar on my cereal!
I never did get into the two Thomas Hardy books you mentioned but I sure loved Tess of the D'Ubervilles. Maybe I'll give it another shot. (I did read it three times when I read it as an undergrad for a major term paper). I don't know if I necessarily read these books every year, but it seems like I've read the Handmaid's Tale and Sula a million times!

Oh, and thanks for the wonderful card. I have the lovely knitters displayed on top of one of my bookshelves for inspiration.

Oh, I'm so glad to know someone else re-reads KSR's Mar's books. I haven't in awhile, and his other books don't seem to grab me quite the same (though I haven't read the newest one.. something about a flood or a drought.. can't remember) and even though I don't get all the hard science, he's written it well enough that I don't have to to get the gist of things.

I'll have to look up some of the others you listed and maybe check them out!

A rock collection - how interesting. Us knitters are very interesting people!

More than 10 coats? You must have a lot of room for your clothes ;) I don't usually buy knitting books for the patterns, I consider them a source of inspiration. And some are just eye candy.

You should come visit. We have lots of rocks on our beaches. Of course, you'd have to wait a while, so you could see the rocks. They're covered with snow right now. Eww!
