Me, and Fee 2013

2013 2013 2013 <center><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-2w1yDTWl3go/UiOoZoVZycI/AAAAAAAAGSc/L6GbGLhoflQ/s1600/DSC_0010+alt+alt+C.jpg" imageanchor="1" ><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-2w1yDTWl3go/UiOoZoVZycI/AAAAAAAAGSc/L6GbGLhoflQ/s1600/DSC_0010+alt+alt+C.jpg" /></a></center></br>Look what the lovely Fee of <a target = "_blank" href="http://chippernelly.blogspot.co.uk/">Chipper Nelly</a> fame made, just for me! A set of her blocks with my <b>knitsofacto</b> <a target = "_blank" href="http://knitsofacto.blogspot.co.uk/2011/08/buttons-of-glass.html">pics</a> on them!! She chose buttons, flowers, knitting, books ... this lady knows me well. Except she doesn't, we'd never met, until Friday, when we did. And jeez was that nerve-wracking, kinda like a blind date for bloggers. </br></br>I needn't have worried, she is absolutely lovely, and just a teeny bit bonkers in the best kind of way ... we talked and talked <i>for hours</i>. I was about to write that bad planning on my part meant she got in first when it came to paying for our many coffees, but maybe it wasn't such bad planning if it means there has to be a next time when the coffees are on me. </br></br>Fee posts family pics on her blog so I knew what she looked like, but I'd failed to catch on that she wouldn't have a clue about me ... Google my name, or <b>knitsofacto</b>, and not a one of the women you'll see is yours truly. I hadn't planned to be visually anonymous but it's fun that it's played out that way ... I'm whoever you imagine me to be! Except when you meet me, and then, scary thought, you might not like the look of me at all! </br></br>Luckily Fee took my two heads and tentacles in her stride*, and in every other particular here's hoping I wasn't too far from the person she'd supposed me to be. And she, I should add, was as delightfully chatty and chipper as I'd imagined. Because that's another scary thought ... our readers will form an impression of us based on what we write that may well be wide of the mark. The me who is writing is not the me I am writing about, how can it be, when the one is constructing the other from selected thoughts and memories and carefully chosen words. To paraphrase E.B. White, personal narrative is, unavoidably, "a kind of imposture". </br></br>Or perhaps you disagree? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. And on meeting fellow bloggers and online friends, tentacled or otherwise Wink </br></br>* A note for my non-English speaking readers ... I dread to think what Google Translate will make of this bit ... whatever it's telling you is a big fat fib! </br></br><center>♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥</center></br><center>Follow the links below to subscribe to free updates via ...</br><a target="_blank" href="http://www.feedly.com/home#subscription/feed/http://feeds.feedburner.com/knitsofacto"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif" title="Add to Feedly" /> <a target="_blank" href="http://www.feedly.com/home#subscription/feed/http://feeds.feedburner.com/knitsofacto"><span style="font-size:84%;">Feedly</span></a> </a><a target="_blank" href="http://www.bloglovin.com/en/blog/3234656"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif" title="Follow with Bloglovin" /></a> <a target="_blank" href="http://www.bloglovin.com/en/blog/3234656"><span style="font-size:84%;">Bloglovin</a></span> <a target="_blank" href="http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=knitsofacto&amp;loc=en_US"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif" title="New posts via email" /></a> <a target="_blank" href="http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=knitsofacto&amp;loc=en_US"><span style="font-size:78%;">Email</span></a></br></br>You can also now join us on <a target = "_blank" href="https://www.facebook.com/pages/Knitsofacto/179844712081480">Facebook</a> and on <a target = "_blank" href="http://www.ravelry.com/groups/knitsofacto">Ravelry</a>!</center><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br><center><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-2w1yDTWl3go/UiOoZoVZycI/AAAAAAAAGSc/L6GbGLhoflQ/s1600/DSC_0010+alt+alt+C.jpg" imageanchor="1" ><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-2w1yDTWl3go/UiOoZoVZycI/AAAAAAAAGSc/L6GbGLhoflQ/s1600/DSC_0010+alt+alt+C.jpg" /></a></center></br>Look what the lovely Fee of <a target = "_blank" href="http://chippernelly.blogspot.co.uk/">Chipper Nelly</a> fame made, just for me!
