Ten On Tuesday!

It's that time again!

Ten Things You’d Bring On A Desert Island:

1. The Meezer (goes almost without sayin')
2. Sock yarn and my KP Harmony size 1.5 circulars with rubber ring stitch markers
3. Lace yarn and my Addi Lace needles (and more stitch markers)
4. DK weight merino wool and my KP Harmony interchangeables (unless I succumb at Sock Summit and buy the Addi Clicks) and my “Eye or Horus” marker – I use it as good luck, and also as a great “knit in the round” starting point marker.
5. Coffee – good coffee
6. Dove Dark Chocolate with raspberry, and almonds
7. Bernina sewing machine and all the scraps I’ve accumulated since starting Nana Sadie Rose – I plan to quilt (which means I’ll also need all the sewing essentials, pins, needles, rotary cutters, scissors, etc etc etc)
8. My computer – because if you all can’t come with me, I must have a means of communication – so there will be access to books online, music online.
9. My best friend Lynette – because if I don’t know how to do it, she does. We’re a good pair (and I suspect she’d have to bring her favorite kitties, too, which is fine. The Meezer will ADJUST)
10. Plenty of Hogue & McManus Merlot (a girl needs variety) –

Please notice there’s no mention of any man. That’s because I’ve never met one who could figure out how to relax and enjoy life. They all just want to be workaholics, and while I’m much the same way? I figure living on this desert island is like retirement – so guys, either figure out the method? Or forget-a-bout-it!

We knitters are terrible list makers. Both you and Carol "cheated" by listing 10 sets of things, not 10 items. But then, it's our game, we decide, right?

What's worse than them wanting to be workaholics is that they want you to be too.

Excellent list.

Now *that's* an excellent list! It sounds to me like you've got it all planned out :)

Excellent list! Coffee is very important; it makes doing things with all the other stuff possible.

I guess we have similar but not identical tastes. I would enjoy #6 (in fact, I have a couple of chocolate cake recipes with raspberries) but you may have #5.

Your wayward cousin,
up too late once again

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
