The Duchess of Yarnnation, has posted a meme and I've been tagged, umm about 3 months ago. Yes. So let it begin:

Which of your finished projects are you most proud of?

My wedding dress! Mostly because I finished it on time. I'm thinking now that I'd like to separate the top and bottom so I can wear it more often, as it will be less dressy then.

Which of your UFO’s is never going to see the light of day again?

Oh so many. What jumps to mind are some felted slippers using Lambs Pride that I hate the color of. An odd lavender... Nerissa finished hers though in fuschia, embroidered them and they were adorable.

What is the most unusual place you have ever purchased yarn?

Paris? London? Hmm... actually it's probably a stand that sells imported carpets at the Fremont Public Market. They had some recycled Sari Silk that I couldn't resist and of course I have no idea what to do with it.

What is the most money (plastic or real) you have ever dropped on yarn at one time?

I doubt more than $200, in a go.

Where is the craziest place(s) you have whipped out your needles?

I got the most guff about it on a train in London. Apparently people don't knit in public there!

What is the most unique project you have ever undertaken?

Well my wedding dress has been the most "mine" yet. Though knitting for McDonalds was definitely unique. I still see signs with my mittens on them, strange.

I don't want to tag people, but if you want to jump in (Pip, Quinn?) go ahead!

Be We in Paris or in Lansing...

I feel summer coming to a close. The weather is getting a touch cooler every day and I find myself wanting to fix this summer in my mind.

Not that I could forget:

Knitting my wedding dress at my Grandmas' bedside. Watching each of my friends discover Woodstock anew. Jesses' face when he read his vows to me.

I wouldn't forget that.

But I might forget the smaller moments, like blackberry picking with Steph, Zophie and Quinn.

Even if I did draw a little blood for my troubles.
I also got plenty of pie and freezer jam out of it.

And Nerissa Hula Hooping it up with Milo... I wouldn't forget that.

It's been a good summer.

Here's to hoping I can squeeze the best out of the next few weeks.
