Hoodie for MeMe

i've finished my Corona hoodie!!
(lexi took the pics lol)
i'm rather pleased with it - my first non-sock/glove/hat grown up knit!

it took almost exactly 600g of the new Bendigo Woolen Mills Luxury 10ply, other details & mods etc are on my rav page..

and just to teach me to neglect my blog feed reader thingammy, i've just discovered that i was tagged ages ago by the very crafty & allegedly crazy Jo for a MeMe that everyone was doing, like, ages ago.. ;-)

so here it is-

What is your current obsession?

our new carpet. it’s so soft & squishy!

What is your weirdest obsession?
see above.

What are you wearing today?
jeans, merino top, new hoodie

If you could change 1 thing about yourself, what would you change?
working on the teeth, so would have to be the nose.. sorry, love ya dad, but could do without your nose.

What would you eat for your last meal?
our version of katie’s lentil lasagna (no courgettes lol), really good chocolate milk, hot chips, hot fudgey gooey vegan chocolate cake, with triple chocolate icecream, and fresh strawberries & de spa chocolates on the side. all organic & sustainable ingredients of course, can afford to live up to ideals for last meal if no other time!

What’s the last thing you bought?

What are you listening/watching right now?
watching nothing, tv is off while kids are up, listening to kids chatter.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
can’t fit in a broadway show in an hour, so probably some tropical island for a soak

Which language do you want to learn?
welsh or mandarin

What do you love most about where you currently live?
Auckland..? probably access to the zoo, museums, large library system etc (hey when we become a supercity does that mean free access to all the region’s libraries?!?!)

What is your favorite colour?

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
my new hoodie

What were you doing ten years ago?
I was in 6th form lol.. probably sulking/skulking around listening to metallica or some such.

Describe your personal style?

If you had $300 now, what would you spend it on?
tickets to starlight express. new boots – mine have very little sole left.

What are you going to do after this?
try to get the kids to sleep

What are your favourite films?
LOTR, monty python, i've seen some really good ones but i'm having a mind blank.. looking forward to the new harry potter *blush*

What inspires you?
my friends, ravelry & various blogs – chronic “I could try that” syndrome

Your favourite books?
Terry Pratchett's Discworld series

Do you collect anything?
mess. hobbies.

What makes you follow a blog?
inspiring ideas or crafts, witty repartee, written by friends, often all of the above.

What is your favourite FO and why?
my boysenberry hand knit socks. so warm, so cozy, can wear them over & over & they don’t get smelly! and they fit really well.

Your proudest moment?
having a homebirth with eli, highly recommend it (but get your own baby!)

Your biggest weakness?
having no patience for medium-large purchases once i know i have the money & need (or concocted need at least)

The rules:1. Respond and rework; answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add one more question of your own. 2. Tag eight other people.

soo umm.. i'll try to pull some adjectives out of my bloggy hat- domestic, challenging, sufficient, addled, creative (or umm late), naked, satisfying, and a goodie!

Oooh, but I love Eli!!!! I love the jumper too - it really suits you :)

applepip said...

Beautiful!!! It fits you so well too - how did you avoid the handknit-jumper-for-a-gorilla syndrome?? I love the cuffs. Clever, clever you. And you did it in time for it still to be winter and appropriate wear. Wowzer.

Mary said...

I'm impressed!

nova_j said...

thanks! pippa i just folded the cuffs back ;)

I love that jumper! I still haven't been game enough to knit anything for me.
