Before the meme, though, a preview of things to come, if I don't crap out and conveniently "forget" that I said I'd blog about them:
- Tour of knitting stores in NYC
- New yarn acquisitions
- Moving and cleaning angst
- Upcoming projects
Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those who are tagged need to write on their own blog those 7 facts as well as the rules of the game.
