Meme’s and a contest

Ok, here's a contest…

Name 5 places other than your house or a knitting store where you have knit…

Post your list on your blog & put a link to it in the comments of this entry. Whomever has the most original place as picked by my DB will get a little knitting gift packages from me. We'll pick a winner on Friday, April 21.

Here's my list..
1) on a plane

2) at a campsite

3) on the beach

4) in my car (not in traffic but endlessly waiting for my child to finish music lessons, come out of a movie, etc.)

5) on the subway

And another meme stolen from here

  1. You know, I didn’t realize until a moment ago that you’re a witch. (Shows how much I pay attention!) It strikes me as funny because the knitting story is actually going to go that way. (Just don’t tell anyone! 😉 )

  2. Mine aren’t very exciting, but here they are: http://yarnharpy.livejournal.com/38492.html

  3. thanks for playing!

  4. Mine aren’t very exciting, either – well, they were for me, I suppose. I don’t have a *thing* about knitting in public. I just do and people sometimes gape. They do that anyhow some days.

    My list is at:

    And that’s that.
