:raises hand: I limit myself to one glass or things get weird and I go to bed thinking about what a great job I did and wake up thinking what the?!

I prefer white wine, I have a fear of red wine and yarn. I have 2 kids (one toddler) and a cat, accidents happen.

If I'm going to have wine, it has to be red and preferably a merlot. There are several fabulous ones. *happy sigh* But if I truly want a good, relaxing evening, I'll have a black russian or two. ^_^

Find me on as Quiara. ^_^

I am, in fact, enjoying an AWESOME sangiovese right now from Niner Wine Estates in California, 2004. It's incredible. Highly recommended.

I've been known to have a nip of Scotch while knitting.

About twice a year, I'll go to the local ABC store, and buy 6 tiny bottles of different liquers to sample.

My hubby always laughs at me when I bring home a small bag full of little bottles. Then he laughs again when it takes me 6 months to finish them. (I usually pour a tiny shot glass full and sip it over the course of an hour, so each bottle is good for two different times.)

I will sometimes get a regular size bottle of Kahlua, or another sweet creamy blend. But, I don't think I can drink them anymore on my low carb diet. I'll have to look up nutrition info online to find out.

I do, when a bottle is opened. I'm the only one that drinks in the household, unless I get a vacu-vin, then there is no point of opening a bottle all to myself. Recently I had a Gray Monk, Pinot Gris 2004. I've got a Selbach Reisling, a Dr. Loosen Reisling. Jackson Triggs Cab Sauvingon and a couple ice wines in my cellar . Hmm there is an ice wine in my fridge :D that awaits to be uncorked. Hmmm...

Dangles, definitely get the vacu-vin! It's not that expensive, and the stoppers last forever!

I'll have a nice glass of merlot or cab, please!

I love having a glass of lovely red Merlot while knitting. Limit is usually one glass, but that's okay since my favourite unique glass is rather large (2 glasses = half a bottle). Again that's actually a good thing since I'm the only drinker in the house so have to finish the bottle before it goes bad. Right? In fact I could go for some wine and knitting right now - but *sigh* I don't think my boss would be too enthusiastic about it!
