Imponderables

Why is feather and fan, one of the prettiest knitting stitches, and one of the easiest to memorize, inevitably one that trips you up over and over?

Why didn't I watch "Friday Night Lights" when it was on the air?

How are glasses that are clean when I take them off at night, and that stay on the nightstand until morning, smear-y when I put them on?

Am I the only one who is completely helpless with a yarn swift?

Is it possible to have too many knitting bags?

How many books can/should you read at a time?  And not get confused, I mean.

Would you be interested in some sort of swap?

Would/Could you give me some ideas on what kind of swap you'd like?

What would be a really nice handknit wedding gift?  Best friend's daughter is getting married, and I'd like to make her something.

  1. FNL is the bomb diggity!
    As for swaps, maybe an X-mas ornament swap?

  2. I haven't done a swap in ages! I've no particular ideas, but I'd likely be interested.

    I knit some nice sachets as gifts for my daughter's attendants -- they were tiny & quite lovely. I upped the gauge and made a larger one as a birthday gift for my sister. An assorted 1/2 dozen or so might make a nice gift.

  3. I'm with you on winding yarn. The swift and ball winder ought to be great and yet I almost always end up with a mess.

  4. How about a table runner for the wedding gift?

  5. I'll be in on the swap! I need it to be on the reasonable side: 20 dollar limit or so.
    Might be fun to do a white elephant/ gold elephant swap. You include a dud knitting tool or buttons or something you don't want anymore and A wonderful new thing for your partner. ????
    I can only read one book at a time.
    AL knitted Christmas stockings for the new bride and groom in our extended family. Heirlooms and such a unique gift. Do they celebrate Christmas?
    Fireman and I were late to the Friday night light party but we loved it.

  6. F&F: I had the same problem the first time I made the Montego Bay scarf. It's a 2-stitch, 2-row pattern -- and I kept screwing it up. Second time, no problem. Go figger.
    FNL: I'm in the same boat.
    Glasses: Yep. But mine are NEVER clean.
    Swift: Kinda like knitting with 5 dpns. It's inherently awkward.
    Knitting bags: I have too many. Don't ask how many that is, I cannot count that high.
    Books: I can only do 2, one audio and one printed, at a time. YMMV.
    Swap: No, thanks. I don't do well with externally imposed deadlines.
    Wedding gift: Can you knit an afghan in the time available?

  7. F&F : my faborite stitch, I've done it a billionty times, and it messes me up every.single.time

    yarn swift: I'm incapable of getting through even the shortest skein without the yarn being wound around the base, the nearest chair leg, and my neck

    Knitting bags: I have too many. I want more.

    Books: best 2 at a time. In reality, there are times when I have a book in process in every room, and two on the nook.

    Swap: a teeny one, maybe.
