As the Knitist says, consider yourself tagged.

Even though frogging isn't on the list, for those of you who've ever frogged (and surely that's all of us), amuse yourself with The Five Stages of Frogging.

I am somewhere around Stage 5 with the Exotic Lace Jacket by Iris Schreier, but that deserves a post of its very own.

Holy God, that's a long list. Would it be wrong of me to say that I can't fill out the whole thing because I'm too busy knitting? *ducks*

Jen said...

Hey, thanks for the link! (to the Five Stages) How'd you find us?

Enjoyed poking around your blog...too bad you're not in the Midwest; I think we'd get along. I'm partial to Tori Amos and Albus Dumbledore myself.

Oh, and I'm sure you'll be relived to know that the hat (of Frogging fame) has thoroughly repented of its prior evil ways, and has very generously allowed itself to be finished. (Check back soon - photos are coming.) Or maybe that was just *me* who was relieved. Either way.

OK OK OK I've been tagged, but that's a long list!

Hey Knuknitter! Enjoying your blog:-) Still working on mine...

I noticed the "knitting with dog/cat fur" item on your list, which reminded me to ask you (again. I don't remember your answer from the first time...):

Do you have any local know-hows in your network who could help me spin a large amount of Norwegian Elk Hound fur into yarn?

Many thanks!
