What Is My Type
I always hated this question, because it seemed to limit the "type" of person I could find appealing.
To be as least restrictive as possible, I really like people that I feel I can connect with. When someone really gets me, and I really get them back, to me, that's incredibly attractive.
Yes, of course I have a physical type that's immediately attractive (actually, a number of them), but that's often such distraction, since part of that physical type includes the expectation that I will connect emotionally with the person.
Truth be told, if I had to pick a single physical type, the closest well-known person is probably this:
Too young and a bit too polished perhaps, but generally, that's what I find immediately attractive.
One of the great benefits of being with someone like Thaddeus for so long, is that you get to realize the important aspects of being in a relationship with someone. The struggles and the hard times kind of burn away the unimportant aspects, and the great times reinforce what's important and what keeps us together.

I pay more than the price Sandra in Portland pays...I think I pay about $28 for a ToshSock, and it's also difficult to get the good colors in my local yarn store. But I do love her colors.

No, only one on the hexapuff blanket. But there are TONS of videos out there for ANYTHING knitting you want to do. Just go to YouTube and type in Knitting Tutorial in the search and you'll be inundated with excellent ones. Good luck and thanks for finding me!
