MY Friend Lisa.. Who is on The Babysweaters Group... was Tagged by me and I forgot that she did not have a Blog.. So she emailed me her answer and I just had to post it here... LOL

1) People who know me are always shocked when I'm at a loss for words.
2)I can make "Fart Sounds" with my two hands together. That's talent.And the result of not being able to do the armpit ones my brothers did.
3) I'm the only one people know who can have a one-sided conversationwith an answering machine. ( I see a theme here, hey!)
4) I won a "Name the stuffed Chicken" contest on a five minute cultureappreciation program that was on every morning during the week( Let'shear it for "Heritage Corner"!). I sent in a list of ten names and Igot picked. I was supposed to go to the studio to pick up my chickenbut never did. My grandmother told me I was the "wrong color" anddidn't belong there. Hmph... I never got over that.
5) When I was a teenager I was told I looked like Patti Hearst, AmyIrving and the lead singer to REO Speedwagon( who happens to be a man,thanks alot, Nick!)
6)Although I am such a girly girl, people are amazed I will get in onany game of Volleyball and give a good whoopin to anyone out there onthe opposing team.
7) Now I'm told I look like Michele Pfeiffer or the blonde in "ColdCase"( I think that's cuz she looks like she's always crying and isquite the pastey face like me), or Marge Helgeberger( yeah, um, I'dlove to have that body though). I think these people who tell me thisall have eye problems.
8) I can count to 30 in German and do the alphabet in sign languagewith both hands simultaneously.

While working on My Quilt this week I also made this Little Milan Sweater...
The pattern is from The Book Natural Knits for Babies and Moms.....
I used a Caron Yarn that changes the shades of color. I tried to get the sleeves to sort of change in about the same places so they would matching. One sleeve looks wider than the other in the photo but its not... I guess its just the way I shaped it when I "posed" it for the picture :)
The yarn is really so Soft!!! I LOVE soft !!!

I'm hoping to have enough leftovers to make a "Little" Blankie!!!!

This Little Wrap Sweater is done in a really nice yarn that I got from April .. she picked my name out of a hat and sent me two skeins of Louet Gems.. 100% washable merino wool.. Its a lovely soft sweater... Thank You April !!!!!
The pattern is from an old knit book that I have and if I do another one of these there are alot of changes I would make to do it a little easier.. I would do the front & back in one piece mainly just to eliminate sewing.. and this one had the buttonbands done seperately which I would "knit on" in the next one.. But all in all.. I LOVE the Little Sweater.. :)
