YES, I am experiencing the effects of knitting - as an outlet for my creativity, my obsession with colour and my love for beautiful yarns. NO, not in a negative way, but as in the German word "stricken", i.e. knitting!
Hi there! I just stumbled across your blog. It's funny--I was considering the same name for my blog and for the same reason, too. Vor zehn Jahren war ich Germanist--jezt aber nicht mehr. Anyway, I liked the pun of stricken (as in struck) and the German word.So, anyway, hi!
Hello Mona! Greetings from Alaska!(Blogger won't let me reply to you, so I'll post a comment, but feel free to email me if you like: email@example.com)Thanks for the sock advice you left on my blog - I've enjoyed the pattern, so I'll probably knit a pair for myself... with the extra length, of course. I'd be interested in finding out the type of Opal I have, as I get lots of compliments on it.As for the Men In Trees, well, we all laugh at the show - very few of the men are that handsome, and the whole Alaska Lifestyle is rather idealized. It's like assuming everyone in New York City lives a Sex in the City life... But I got a kick out of the very true-to-life attempt to get a flight out in the pilot episode: "Nope, we're not flying to Anchorage today. Only to Sitka." "Oh, I'll go to Sitka then." "Lady, you don't want to go to Sitka..."
Oh, yeah, and the rabid raccoon scene? A fried and I were talking about it last night - we don't have raccoons here...
I'm intrigued. Is it coming out in a future magazine? ;)
