Come Inside the Big Tent

Under this big top, questions about indulgences and priorities and preferences!  First in the Center Ring,  Kathy's Monday Meme.
1.  What is the bulkiest yarn with which you have knit?
I've dealt with some fairly bulky chenilles.  And Knit Collage has great bulky yarn.

2.What is the biggest size needle you've worked on?
50.  The project (a cowl) was off the needles almost as soon as it was cast on!

3.Tell me about the WHOLE enchilada.
Shredded steak, green onions, cheese, cilantro pico de gallo, then cheese melted on the top.

4.  Would you rather wear a bulky ring, bulky bracelet, or bulky earrings?
Earrings are out;  I wore earrings that were too bulky too soon after getting my ears pierced the first time, and tore my right earlobe.  With a ring, it would depend on what makes it bulky (material, setting, stone. . .)  I do like a nice bulky bracelet.

5.  Name something oversized that you own and love.
I can't think of anything oversized that's mine.  I have oversized collections of things, but the things themselves are of regular size.

6.  Which is bigger, your number of Ravelry project pages, or the number of patterns you have faved?
Patterns.  Not even close.

7.  What is the biggest vegetable you have grown?
A pumpkin.  Each of my children came home from school with pumpkin seeds more than once!

8.  How large is your stash?
I thought it was embarrassingly big, until I posted a photo of it, and had people tell me they wish they could pare theirs down to that size!

9.  What's the longest vacation you've taken?
A week.

10.  What is the longest you've gone without talking to another human being?
Two or three days.

Next, today's Maker's Question.
What would you save in a fire?
The pets.  (I'm assuming I can only save one thing.)

And our last circus ring:


  1. Agree on the pets.

    And oh that is a fabulous ring!

  2. THat circus ring is amazing !
    OH my gosh KNIT COLlage is amazing! Thanks for the link KIM!

#Chewy Influencer, March

Well, if you're a bit sensitive, you might want to turn away now.

One of my choices to try from Chewy was Fussie Cat dry food:

Since Madeleine is on a restricted diet, only Erin and Riley tried this.  And one, or both, of them developed --- how should I put this --- lower intestinal tract issues.  I don't know which it was (or, again, if it was both) because everyone has free access to every litter box.  Still, things were messy.

I believe this is the first product for the cats that I've had to truly negatively rate.  Sorry, Chewy.

As a Chewy Influencer, I am allowed to choose products to test --- for free --- each month.  There is no financial transaction of any kind.

Chewy Influencer, January, Part One

I have not been following the Influencer blogging rules, and for that I apologize.  I am supposed to post one entry for each product I try.  Here, then, is the first review of 2018.
I must start with a hearty thank you to my FedEx driver.  This was 40 pounds of litter packed along with a case of canned cat food.  That box was very, very, very heavy.
I like this litter.  While it doesn't seem to control odor any better than other litters we have used in this house, it is easier to scoop.  (The "lumps" don't cling to the sides of the litter box.)  It is also helpful that, despite being difficult to move around, the litter comes in a 40 pound bag.  Having three cats, we go through a lot of litter here, and having this much around the house keeps me from having to go buy smaller boxes or bags every few days.
So, thumbs up to Frisco litter.  As part of the Influencer program, I request and receive products to review monthly.  No money is exchanged at all betwee…

Winning Girl

VERA!  You will be getting this week's countdown prize.  If you send me your address, that is.  😄  Send it to handeyecrafts*at*hotmail*dot*com, and your mailbox will soon have a visitor.
You should probably know that Vera's answer was "Napping Girl," which also fits me.  Since socks sort of started this whole thing, I tried to imagine what a pair with each of your answers might look.  
Camille's "Baking Girl" is a girl with oven mitts on pulling cupcakes out of an oven.
Kathy's "Nature Girl," as per her answer, would be a girl with an owl.
Grace's "Sipping Tea Girl" is a girl in a comfy chair by a window, teacup in hand.
Bridget's "Laughing Girl" is a girl with her head thrown back in sheer delight.
Twinnie's "Alpaca Castrating Girl" is. . .
um. . .
well. . .
There's a girl. . .
and, uh . . .

Boy, we all congratulate Vera on her big win, don't we?
