2nd Week Assignment!!!

So this week we were asked... What 5 things would you not leave home without if you were going into hiding, camping, or running away and WHY.

Well If I were to run away I would take
1. My Laptop and necessary lap top things (charger, laptop bag)
It would serve as a connection to the outside world. Now that I have deserted my former life I need a way to create a new identity to start all over. Plus I can google anything I want =).
2. A suitcase full of clothing
I am definitely going to be needing clothes!!!
3. Cash!
Cash is secure nowadays, cant have the police tracking me from my credit cards now =)
4. Passport
Well If I am running away I better be going somewhere amazing!! preferably outside of the US
5. Knitting
I gotta have my current WP, I might just go insane with out it!!!

That was fun!!! hmm I might make this trip a reality....some day =P

HSKS 1st Assingment!!

I am soo excited for this swap, it gives me something to keep my mind off test, classes and work for this semester. So here is a little information about me
- I am a Junior at SUNY Oneonta. I am currently the president of the Oneonta Knit-Wits which is the knitting and crocheting club on campus. I have been knitting for 5 years now.
- I also love to do arts and craft projects. My last few creations were, duct tape flowers, newspaper picture frames and a duct tape wallet.
-I don't know how to crochet yet...but im working on it.

- I definelty do not have the biggest stash, I live in a dorm room for the better part of the year so I have a limited amount of space. My stash is currently a tote and a small bin full of yarn.
