7 random book- and yarn-related facts tag

Captain's Log, Stardate 11.07.2008

Karla tagged me and gave this an interesting twist--she listed seven book-related facts about herself, so I'm going to follow suit, but I'm also including some yarn-related facts.

1. My TBR pile fills 3 bookshelves and 9 plastic bins. No, I am not proud of that fact.

2. In comparison, my yarn stash fills 2 plastic bins and 3 cardboard boxes. Knitters, be proud of me--the only yarn I've purchased in the past six months has been for gifts, with the exception of 4 balls of sock yarn and two colors of mohair yarn.

3. I am in the process of finishing Miss Lambert's shetland pattern for a shawl from Victorian Lace Today. I'm using Shadow laceweight yarn in Jewels color.

4. I am stockpiling books to give away for my NEXT website contest, and I'm excited because there are so many, they're already filling 2 plastic bins.

5. My secret ambition is to one day write a Regency romance.

6. My second secret ambition is to one day run a sheep farm or alpaca farm.

7. My third secret ambition is to one day actually knit up all the yarn I have in my stash so I can buy more.

I tag...
I'm so tired of tagging people, I'm letting you guys decide if you'd like to be tagged. Leave a comment here with your blog address so I can see your answers!


  1. Thanks for playing! Yeah, I'm right there with you... my yarn stash rivals my TBR stash! Goodness, if only we could spend all our time knitting and reading, huh? Well, writing, too... because if no one wrote then we wouldn't have anything to read!

    I hope you do write a Regency someday! I bet that would be a fun read!

  2. I posted this tag on my site yesterday here's my link.

  3. I enjoyed your meme!

    I love to read, but cut down on my TBR pile because I mostly use the library. I have a long list of ones I want to read.

    I don't knit. I have done a little crocheting. I dream of using all my fabric...
