I believe there are always a few ‘healthy’ habits to have and for me, knitting and traveling rank pretty high on the list.
I started knitting years ago and eventually I was knitting all the time – especially when traffic came to a grinding halt on Los Angeles’ 101/405 freeways. I knew my habit was bordering on obsessive when a fellow commuter laughed at me knitting socks at a stop light, “I’ve never seen THAT before” – yes, well, it’s LA traffic, you do what you can 🙂 I have since started dyeing my own yarn and fiber as well as spinning, so I’ve become a fibernista, if you will, and enjoying every moment! There just doesn’t seem to be enough time to do it all . . .
The travel bug bit me long ago with my most favorite place on earth being the Hawaiiian Islands. Hawaii became even more magical for me when I met my husband on Oahu, was engaged on Kauai and married on Maui. It was there the nom de plume, AlohaBlu, was born.
Among other faves and hobbies, I love good food (anything with real butter, bacon or have the word ‘fried’ in the title are always a hit), cappuccinos, anything purple, watching NASCAR and NFL games and movies with the hubby, ballet, photography and ogling beautiful fountain pens.
Mahalo for visiting,
