Sunday Stealing

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing. Sunday Stealing originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme. Let's go!

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named Leo Maccool at the blog Butch Girlcat. It's a 50 question meme, so we decided do it in two parts. Today is Part 2. She explains that she stole meme from the ever-fabulous GREG. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all us thieves!

Desert Rose Shawl by Renee Leverington

First I am going to show you some lovely photos of this beautiful shawl that Sandra Singh has up at her shop.

Get ready to "oo" and "aw"!

The beautiful Desert Rose shawl was designed by Renee Leverington of "Goddess Knits" exclusively for and knit in The Alpaca Yarn Company's lace yarn Suri Elegance. Renee Leverington grew up in Arizona where the crystal Desert Rose is abundant, these beautiful rosette shaped crystals inspired Renee to create her elegant Desert Rose Shawl.

Suri Elegance
The Desert Rose Shawl's beautiful knit fabric, with exquisite drape, is created from The Alpaca Yarn Company's 100% suri alpaca lace weight yarn Suri Elegance. Its knit from the top down and consists of two identical sections worked together with a dividing stitch and garter edge stitches, the pattern is charted.

Personally, I am in love (read "lust") with Falling Leaves and Middle Earth! Now if you want to try your hand at this project or am a "fiberholic" like I am, head on over to and read all about the pattern and yarn and everything! I just liberated some of the highlights from her site.

Over at Seductive Musing, this book is up as a giveaway. To Desire a Devil is part of a four part series. I have not read this one or any of the others but from reading the reviews and an interview at Seductive Musings, I really want to read it. So to earn extra credits, I am posting about the posting.
