Tagged! I'm It!

I've never participated in a chain letters, and I usually ignore the bloggers version called "tagging", but this time I'm going to play. Roberta, aka Krafty1 has tagged me to divulge 7 Random Facts about Me

The Rules: Each person tagged gives 7 random facts about themselves. Those tagged need to write in their blogs the 7 facts, as well as the rules of the game. You need to tag seven others and list their names on your blog. You have to leave those you plan on tagging a note in their comments so they know that they have been tagged and to read your blog. Here are my facts:

1) drumroll please...My first original design has been published in the summer issue of Janet Szabo's Twist and Turns Newsletter for Lovers of Cable Knitting! It is "Harry's Golf Vest" that I designed for my dad several months ago. I've known about this for a long time, but kept it a secret until today. See my sidebar for a picture.

2) I don't like chocolate. Nope, it tastes like, well, dirt. Give me vanilla, nuts, lemon flavored goodies, but don't ruin it by adding chocolate. This hasn't always been the case. I used to be a chocolaholic, but after chemotherapy 15 years ago I can't stand the stuff.

3) I knit socks for soldiers. This is from the gal whose picture was in Time Magazine back in the '60's at a peaceful anti-Vietnam War protest. Yep, I'm holding up a candle at the nightime peace march looking angelic (ha ha).

4) Got Curl! Oh yeah, I've always had straight hair, but now that I'm down here in tropical Mexico with the high humidity my hair is curling. I am so thrilled - check out the photo I had Jonesy take yesterday of my ponytail. I was the goofy kid in 1st grade who wanted to look like Shirley Temple so I wore foam rubber curlers in my hair all night the day before "picture day" at school. Nobody combed my hair in the morning, so I have these tight little blobs of hair all over my head. Jesh. By my high school years, straight hair was the hot fashion, so I was finally in style.

5) I'm a 15 year breast cancer survivor. Big, bad agressive form of cancer that had spread to my lymph nodes. Big, bad agressive treatment and I'm still alive. Somebody has to make up that small statistical percentage that survives despite the dire prognosis - why me? I really don't know. Certainly not because I had a good attitude!!! 'Cuz I sure didn't!

6) I've sat onstage while Jimi Hendrix and The Cream (Eric Clapton) played.

7) I've lived in California, Hawaii, Colorado, Georgia, Michigan, and now Mexico.

So I've played along with the "tag" by listing 7 facts about me, but that's as far as I'll go with this. If you really, really want to play on your blog just go ahead and do it. Yeah, I'm breaking the rules again.

So, the picture at the top of this blog entry...What is it? Where is it? Hint: it has something to do with knitting. Recognize it?
