A No Brainer (also a bit fruity!)

You Are 45% Left Brained, 55% Right Brained

The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.

Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.

If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.

Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.

Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.

If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.

Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.

I first read this on Joys blog and either my brain can't quite make up it's mind too or I use more of my brain than I originally thought lol Pretty cool though isn't it?

Now I have been doing some knitting but there's not much to show, as I have been somewhat scattered and just cast on for several things and that's it...just cast ons!!! What I really need is for an exciting pattern to come along and grab my full attention - wonder what that (or when that) will be?

And just to cheer me up

You Are an Orange

You have a zest for life, especially for anything colorful, wild, or dramatic.

You have a unique take on the world, and you're not afraid to be a little funky.

You are a bit reserved toward people who don't know you well.

You have a thick skin, which can protect you from anything that goes wrong in your life.

Once someone does get to know you, they totally get and appreciate you.

Your friends see you as a bright person with a refreshing take on life.

I'm a bit of a fruit too ;)

yarn and dishcloths.

Well here's my January prize for the sock yarn project...

...have you guessed what it is yet? lol

It's a skein of gorgeous bamboo from the Yarn Yard. The colourway is Kyoto (i'm definately having a purple phase at the mo)

Here's my dishcloth from the swap over at CTnY Forum

This was made the lovely CraftyBernie. She also included a lovely needle roll

an inside shot too with little stickers and a pen.

And my comment in the previous post still stands....all comments will put into a draw for a little something from me....just haven't decided what exactly yet ;) lol

February??? where did January go?

Wow well that was quick...time for my monthly update I guess ;)
Well i've been sort of busy..this is a post of FO's (which i'm pleased about) and also I was given an award by the lovely Joy
Thankyou very much indeed :D
Now the problem with all these awards is that when you come to pass them on everyone has already been nominated I will go away and come back to this later on.

Right then, stuff :)

First up are the two things that have just won me the January Sock Yarn Challenge prize over at Crafty Threads n Yarns

My prize is a skein of yarn of my choice from n at the The Yarn Yard I've already chosen but i'll post a pic when it arrives so you'll have to wait till then...hee hee!

Then I made a matching hat...

..which is now owned by sis along with the wristwarmers! (you just can't have anything can you? lol)

These were also finished last month, after I had a panic about running out of yarn...which is not like me at all but there you go lol
My friend chose the yarn and the tidal wave pattern, so I would've been gutted if I had run out. Instead I have about 20g left rofl!! The yarn was/is Skein Queen's Plushness in Thames River colourway, it feels blummin lovely too :D

And finally here's me...

...wearing my Purple Tree (Jacket)which was supposed to be my first FO of the year but it got pushed out by the nautiloid ;)

Ciao For Now xxx
