Have Pattern, Have Floss, Have Fabric

So it begins. . .


Let the gridding and stitching begin!!

9/02/05 progress
Lest anyone think I am neglecting my knitting, here is my progress on Beginner's Triangle for the GAL-along. Slowly but surely it's coming along.

Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone!

You know you want to know :) Why it is so spaced out is beyond me, but it's a cool quiz nontheless.

Modern, Cool Nerd
73 % Nerd, 52% Geek, 30% Dork
For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!

Awesome that you have your fabby, pattern, and floss all ready to go. Yippee!

Awesome Beginner's Triangle. No, I don't want to know where to find the pattern. I might have to add it to my ever growing list of things to start! LOL

What I find hilarious is that I just took the Nerd test and came out as a Joe Normal (I'll add it to my blog tomorrow), in spite of the fact that I did tech support for more than 5 years! LOL Whew. I guess I got over it. LOL
