Hi Y'all.. I'm Mouse and I come bearing buttons for the site. Feel free to use it but save it on your own server or else I'll send my pack of evil mutant acid spewing zombie mice to chew on your yarn... or I'll just stomp my foot and be really angry with you.. depending on how full my schedule is.
I'm a knitter and spinner - I just bought my first wheel ( a Louet s-10) in May and I'm still more into spinning than knitting right now. Its probably just the fact that it hasn't dropped below 90 degrees here in about 4 months that is doing it. I also have a manual knitting machine that I'm dying to crank out some cool stripey scarves for this winter with - as soon as I figure out what is going wrong with the stupid thing.
At the moment I'm not sure of what you'd call my style beyond "tired mommy"- I sort of gave up on my head to toe goth clothing when I became a mom and just wear whatever I feel like day to day. Living in the South makes a closet full of velvet and high neck blouses ( I love more of a victorian type gothic look.. ) just seem like a recipe for heat stroke - so I usually wait until fall (assuming we're having fall this year.. I'm still waiting) to bring out my 'darker side'. Admittedly I've gotten quite lazy about my wardrobe.. but I'm hoping to remedy that.
My taste in music is mostly gothic & dark wave, 80's, with some celtic and new age ( Loreena McKinnett, Dead Can Dance, Capercaillie) throw in. My husband is a huge Christian Death/Rozz Williams fan and also listens to a lot of German/ industrial type bands (Rammstein, Wumpscut, and Skinny Puppy) so I've ended up liking more of that too.
I'm also completely addicted to hand blended perfumes (Goth Rosary & Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs), striped tights, high boots, and all things purple. Pleased to meet y'all!~
