Those of you who know me well, know I’m a major Jane-ite. I have a knitting blog, so, duh!, it’s a good bet I enjoy knitting. I also love a good cup of tea! What if there was a place that combined all three of my loves? Well, now there is!
One of my favorite all-time online haunts is the Republic of Pemberley (ROP). I love the idea of applying to become a citizen of the Republic, and how polite and civil discussions there are. However, by nature, the group is heavily focused on discussing JA, and not nearly enough knitting goes on! Therefore, in anticipation of the new Masterpiece Theatre productions of all six of JA’s works, I’ve created the Jane Austen Knitting and Tea Society. A gentle society where discussion of all things knitting, JA, or tea-related are welcome! When PBS airs the new productions, I’m hoping for group viewings, reading, and discussing. If this sounds like your “cup of tea” click on & come over!
|Which Jane Austen Character are You? (For Females) Long Quiz!!!
created with QuizFarm.com
|You scored as Emma Woodhouse
Emma is possibly one of the most loyal characters of Austen, always wanting better for those around her and doing all she possibly can to make it happen. Her motives sometimes get in the way of her good intentions and her own opinions can end up ruling her actions, but she has a good heart. She loves to be social and is welcoming to most, unless they are too silly to tolerate. While she sometimes changes her behavior to make others feel comfortable, she knows who she is and is always bettering herself.
