I'm a Joiner
lured and then quietly strangled. -Sir Barnett Cocks
I'm a joiner. Always have been. When my parents used to call me in college and talk to the best randomly assigned roommate ever (she brought me quiviut from Alaska - who can top that?), the running joke was that I was never there because I was in a meeting. There's nothing wrong with a committee every now and again, is there?
It turns out that - no matter what we'd like to think - our virtual personalities are a lot like our real personalities. And so I start a knitting blog and join in the fun: webrings, fanlistings, and, of course, the mecca of all joining, knitalongs.
Welcome to Friday: Knitalong Update on Knitting Underway
I'm stealing a page from Amanda here and instituting a weekly knitalong update. Friday looks good to me.

Knit the Classics
Themed Project: Clarissa is all about flowers, so I'm making Flora in some Wool of the Woods cottony-stuff that is still in skeins. As soon as I find that ball winder . . .
And a Meme
Chris tagged me earlier this week to list 5 weird things about myself. Since this is a knitting blog and I am
1. I have to-do lists for my knitting.
2. I have to-do lists for my blogging about my knitting.
3. I rewrite my lists as I finish things to keep them looking neat and tidy.
4. I am a (fast) thrower, and have a lot of trouble knitting continental, except when I am doing stranded colorwork. For some reason, I can knit with my left hand just fine when using two colors.
5. I decorate with yarn.
It seems I'm supposed to tag 5 people now, but Knitting Underway is a voluntary participation kind of place. We believe in the republic. One man, one vote. Tag yourself and leave a note in the comments.
