Now I'm Hungry for Ice Cream. Or Frozen Custard.

1. Do you prefer:
frozen custard
hardpack ice cream
soft serve ice cream
Shaved ice 
I've been on a serious frozen custard run for the last couple of months, but, ultimately, I like soft serve.  With hardpack ice cream, and with custard, I moosh it around in the bowl until it's soft.

2. Of all the colors of the rainbow, which is your favorite? 
Purple.  Always purple.

3. How do you keep your sock needles together? 
Because of my ineptitude with double-points, my sock needles are my regular needles.  No special  organization needed.

4. If you could run through a knit shop and pull as much of ONE yarn as you could carry, what would it be?
Noro.  Always Noro.

5.  Are you over shawls?
Not at all.  Some of most gorgeous knitting I've ever seen has been in shawls.  Plus, the range of shapes and patterns is astounding.

6.Do your peonies open with or without ants?
I don't have peonies, but my gardenias are usually aswarm with ants.

7. As a young girl I loved the book Charlotte's Web.  Want to share your favorites?
Black Beauty.  The Bobbsey Twins.  The Snowy Day.

 8.  Is it nothing but boring to you to knit stockinette? 
or do you love it like me?
I don't mind it.  It's great for watching TV or DVDs to.

9.  Are you more likely to get up early in summer or winter?
I've never noticed a difference.

If you are disappointed with the way a yarn pooling  is working up,
do you:
a. Carry on
b. Mix it with a complimentary color
c. overdye it
d. give it away 
Carry on.  I don't mind pooling at all.  In fact, sometimes I get disappointed when there isn't pooling!

Cold Shoulders

There were 589 stitches!  They were the beginning of this: It's the Superior Waves Shawl from Willow Yarns.  This is one of the kits Kathy was asking about the other day.
Speaking of which, here are this week's questions: Sure sign of Springs: bugs.  Has anything bitten you yet? No, though the carpenter bees are back flying around the bench on the front porch. Do you knit for practice?  I don't mean for gauge;  for a stitch pattern? If I have, I don't remember. Have you tried One Touch Latte for your coffee? Not a coffee drinker. Have you seen or tried Persi laundry detergent? I'd never heard of it 'til now. When was the last time you wore one of your own handknits? Over the weekend --- some socks made from Noro.
If the waves shawl weren't keeping me busy enough, I'm also working on 28's Cousin 53.  I'm making it out of yarn that will turn purple when I wear it in the sun. What will they think of next?


Yesterday would have been my mother's 88th birthday.  I don't say that looking for sympathy --- it's just that the arithmetic surprised me.  Then I realized that next year, my husband would have been 70.  That is hard to get my mind around.
The shades-of-blue feather and fan shawl (the 589-stitcher) had to go into the "Maybe Another Day" file.  Somewhere along the way, I lost the pattern stitch and couldn't fix it without frogging way, way back.  It's irritated me to no end, but there really wasn't anything else to do.
Something occurred to me the other day.  If this is already being done, I didn't know, so I'm not trying to steal anyone's thunder.  You know those cake/cocoa/cookie mixes in a jar? Why couldn't that be done with yarn "cakes"?  


I have been awake since 10 AM yesterday.  I have no idea why.  It resulted in lots, lots of knitting getting done overnight.  It has also resulted in my being alternately punchy and goofy.  What a day to have a therapy appointment.  At least I had the good sense to wear pretty boots:
There is all kinds of nervous conversation here about some possible snowflakes falling Friday or Saturday.  I have to go to the grocery store tomorrow anyway;  as long as there are a couple of gallons of milk in stock, things will be good here.
