Things that make you go Hmmm.

So, my friend Jo posted her tarot card on her blog the other day. I went to check mine out. This is what my full name yielded.

You Are The Hanging Man

You represent the seeking of enlightenment and spiritual clarity.
You tend to confuse others, but your oddities seem deeply satisfying.
Self sacrifice is easy for you, especially if it makes you a better person in the end.
You are the type of person who is very in touch with your soul and inner spirit.

Your fortune:

Right now is a good time for reflection and meditation.
You should stop resisting the problems in your life, and let yourself be vulnerable to them.
You may need to sacrifice something important to you to move ahead in your life.
Accept your destiny with courage, and learn to let go of what you think you need.

Hmmm. My first name only yielded first the Hermit, then the Magician, and then Strength. I wanted to know if the site was just random, so I entered my name in a few times each to see what would happen. So far these things all could be interpreted as matching various aspects of my personality, some of them a bit too close for comfort. The Strength's animalistic nature was one of those: I am actually fairly comfortable with it, but my husband says it can be a bit weird (I guess I can agree with him).
Using my first name and middle name got me the Star, which didn't seem to be on the money much; must have been the middle name.

So, what does this have to do with knitting or other fuzzy things like pets? Maybe how one might interpret my choices in projects, my knitting style, or preferred places to knit, or my choices in pets for that matter.

My knitting projects are all over the map, but a common thread is to make unusual things, or "usual" things with a different colour scheme/yarn/tweak, and always with a great deal of consideration for the intended recipient (to a fault).

Speaking of projects, the Man sweater should be finished any day now. I am adding a couple of inches to the bottom to accommodate my extra tall fellow's long torso, then it will be ready to sew up. I really hope he likes it. He seems to be cautiously excited. After all this stockinette stitch, I am excited that Knitty's new issue is up. I think something lacy next...
