2KCBWDAY5 - And Now for Something Completely Different...

Ok, just for funzies. Today is going to be something a little bit different, and unfortunately not a whole lot of knitting content today. In fact, none at all.
Now, I know that a lot of your blogs are solely about knitting, or near enough all about knitting.  At the moment, mine is too, and I like it that way. But for this post, I've kind of been going on the idea that as much as I do enjoy knitting, it's not the only thing in my life, far from it.

So I asked myself the question, "If I wasn't a knitter, what would I be blogging about?". And I really couldn't come up with a solid answer. Which, in a way, fits perfectly with the little task for today. I am going to do a little photo montage so you can get to know me a little bit better. So here goes nothing.

 I love my ipod, I named here Mrs Phyllus Finkelstein, just because I can. She has been through some tough times, and yet she still seems to manage to soldier on. And as you can see, I do love my music. I often think about starting up a music blog, or something like that, but then I remember how much time and effort goes into my little blog here, that trying to do a music blog would just drain any free time I had. But it is something I LOVE talking about, and I'll listen to pretty much anything. Except country and western. It's a long story.

 As you can see, I'm pretty enamoured with books. Again, they really are something that I can't resist, and I will have read every book on that shelf at least a couple times over, and that has possibly a quarter of the stuff I (personally) own. Just putting it out there too, HUGE Kathy Reichs fan.
Also, I like to play the guitar, and just fool around with music in general. Except my acoustic up there is a little bit broken :( I'm in a band (or what I'd like to call a band, more a gathering of people in the one room playing instruments) with some people from uni, which is a lot of fun, we just mainly get together and have a bit of a play around.
 Also something that I would be really keen to blog about, is movies. I used to see so many when I was in Finland for a year, which is something that I never really did before, but now I realise that there is so many to catch up on. And it's pretty much the same as my music tastes, I can watch pretty much anything, even westerns.
Finally, it doesn't really come out here at all, but I think if you asked anybody who knew me what I am best at doing is learning languages. When I was in Finland I learnt how to speak Finnish and some Swedish (and I can kind of read Norwegian and Danish with my knowledge of Swedish and English now), and I studied French all through school. In uni, I'm studying Spanish, French and Japanese, and there are a few others that I dabble in from time to time. Eventually, I would love to become an interpreter and work for somewhere like the UN or the European Parliament, but that won't be for a while yet.
 So if you want to leave a comment on my blog, but don't speak English, don't worry about it, post it in your native language and I'll figure it out, I'd like the challenge.

I hope you got to know me a little better, I think it's so easy these days to think that us knit-bloggers don't really do anything else apart from knitting, and I think a little bit of variety posting is always good for a blog, especially stuff you enjoy talking about.

x peace folks


  1. What a great question "What else would I blog about?", everyone should ask themselves at least once :)

  2. I would probably put waaaaaaaaaaay more recipes and random photos on. Ahem

  3. That's a stumper of a question- I might have to try a non-craft related post once a week and see what random rubbish comes out lol.

  4. Thanks for commenting on my blog, I hate three hour lectures they just drag sometimes. I can't believe you can speak Finnish, let alone french. I'm taking a french class now, and I find myself completely overwhelmed with it at times.XD
