As We Bid June Farewell

Kathy gives us some things to ponder.

*Where do you keep your favorite old patterns? 
My paper patterns are in file folder organizers.  All my mother's patterns are in the big cardboard box she used to store them.  

*When was the last time you got to bottle feed a baby?
A couple of years ago at an LYS event.  The mother wasn't getting any time to knit, so I offered to help.

*What knitting will you pick up and enjoy today?
My next Blankapalooza square.

*Can you do a flip turn? 
Don't even know how to swim. . .

*You just won a raffle. 
What's your pick? 
*Craftsy on line class?
*Independent yarn dyers sock yarn?
*mystery yarny gifts in a wrapped box?
Oh, the mystery box!  I'm a sucker for mystery boxes, grab bags --- all that sort of thing.

*You can photograph anything perfectly and show us on your blog tomorrow. 
What will it be?
Ocean waves at a beach. 

* Name a New knit website to check out please-
GnomeAcres.com.  It's technically a yarn site, but they do have a blog and a podcast.

*Name something you only drink in summer-
My beverage choices are the same year-round.

*You are give a new skill
Do you choose
a) talk to the animals
b) talk to the dead
c)talk on the radio and have your own show for a night
The animals.  There are too many people on the other side that I'd want to hear from, and I'd be afraid I'd run out of time.  I think animals would be almost infinitely interesting.


  1. Love you answers Kim!!!! Too many on the other side!

  2. Twinnie, you need to learn how to swim.

  3. I thought I was the only person alive who didn't know how to swim.

  4. I checked out Gnomeacres!! Love it


While They Play Football a Couple of Miles Away. . .

It's two sticks and a piece of string.  You have to stop and realize that occasionally.  And this is a simple slipped-stitch border. ...
