What Would You Say?

What is your favorite handmade purchase?
Oh, my.  This is a very tough one.  Maybe a little hoop embroidery piece made by my cousin's daughter.


Kathy wants to know
*Are you more likely to wear a 
poncho or a shawl?
I'm more likely to wear a shawl, though I like ponchos.  It scarcely ever gets cold enough here for a poncho, though.

*Which brings you more joy, 
Casting on or Casting off?
Casting on.  That's easy.

*Are you more likely to knit a baby a hat or booties?
Honestly, it's about 50/50.  Strictly a mood thing with me.

*Does anyone in your family fall asleep in a chair or do they fall asleep in bed?
Bed.  Even when my children were little, they were unlikely to fall asleep in a chair.  (Car seats exempted, naturally.)

*Would you rather win a hot air balloon ride or a dinner cruise? 
Neither interests me.  I suppose the balloon ride doesn't interest me less than the cruise.

*Do you watch the awful news or do you avoid it?
I'm a bit of a news junkie --- I check headlines lots of times each day, and watch the evening news every night.

Do you go to the movies or wait for them on cable?
Again, this is sort of a difficult question.  There honestly aren't that many movies that can pull me into a theater, and if they can't do that, I'm not going to watch them anywhere.

ETA:  Kathy also asked how we feel about Noro.  I adore it.  If I could only have one yarn the rest of my life, that would be it.

#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?
