My VisualDNA

I found this via the Peaceable Imperatrix and decided to give it a try. There are some limitations with this "quiz" (as with all of these online quizzes and personality-test thingies). For example, the "gross" category was limited mostly to bodily functions and obesity. And on most pages I either didn't find an exact match to what I had in mind or wanted to choose more than one option. Still, it was a lot of fun to do this! (If you try it yourself, let me know what results you get!) Notice the chocolate references here? And the mountains? Although I now live not terribly far from some parts of the Appalachians, they aren't as accessible as I'd like. When I lived in southwestern Oregon, I was only half an hour away from a trailhead in the Coast Range. Ah...

Hello, Marsha! I'm glad you liked the visual DNA thing, and thanks for visiting. Thanks for the link to the Stardust trailer, it looks very cool. Now, I wonder if I should read the book or not? Hmmm. I do like Neil Gaiman; I just finished Nancy Boys. Not as good as American Gods, but a fun read, nonetheless.

And about those toe-up socks: is this a pattern that's share-able? I've only done top -down socks, and I'd really like to try toe-up ones. I'll be checking in to see what you think of the pattern when you're all done.

Yes, you should definitely read Stardust--it's a lovely, beautifully written fairy tale for grown-ups.

The toe-up sock pattern I'm learning was written by my friend Pat (who is blogless) and originally published many years ago in Cast Off (I think). So far, I like the pattern!

My SP10 (who teaches toe-up sock knitting classes at her local yarn shop!) sent me this pattern, which looks fun. (I am planning to try it for my next pair of socks.) Maybe she can chime in with other suggestions.
