A View from Sierra County

Small town life and politics, lots of knitting, and travels with and without my five burros

My Photo
Location: In the Sierra Nevadas, United States

I blog about rural living and social issues, and the creativity that comes from knitting, as well as post random pictures of the Sierras and my burros. "In order to be an artist, one must be deeply rooted in the society" - Simone de Beauvoir

I Belong in Dublin

OK, I don't normally cop out and offer up even one meme, let alone two in a week, but somehow my back started a muscle spasm thing this morning that has lasted through the day, and I have to go back and get in "legs lying up" position, which precludes either spinning or knitting, and makes reading a weird experience, holding something over my head. I am sure it has to do with stress and driving over 100 miles three different days this week, while trying to put together a new work schedule... I got this one from Sallee, although she belongs in Paris:

You Belong in Dublin

Friendly and down to earth, you want to enjoy Europe without snobbery or pretensions.

You're the perfect person to go wild on a pub crawl... or enjoy a quiet bike ride through the old part of town.

Thanks for all the compliments on Lily, and to Sharon for sending a much clearer photo, which I will post next... I love this shawl and will be starting a variation, the shawlette featuring scallops and the lilies as an edging, featured in the fall 2006 issue of Interweave Knits. There may not be much posting about it, as it will be a surprise gift, so my updates will have to be written-only till mid-October... someone is going to be very lucky and very happy. Have a great weekend. Back to the floor for me...

Apparently I could be your neighbor in Dublin. Makes sense, I'm almost half Irish. ;-)

Dublin sounds great!

I just took the quiz and Amsterdam was my place to be. Who figured? I am completely straight edge! But there is a lot more to the city I am sure ;-)
