Red Socks

(Quick note: I will be upgrading Wordpress and doing various clean-up/catch-up tasks here on this blog during the next few days. If this post or the site doesn’t load, you’ll know why. Thanks!)

Tag-teamed!

Back in February, I was tagged by Mega(k)nits for the “5 Things Previously Unrevealed” meme. In the same month, Nicole also tagged me for the “I’m not perfect” meme. Last month, Lisa tagged me for the “7/8 Random Things” meme that was making the rounds around blogland.

Boring Post Today

I’ve been so busy lately that I barely had a few minutes to spend on the computer. My blog-reading and emails were completely neglected last week because said moments went to Ravelry. But I’m off work this week so I have lots of time to catch up on things.
