Summertime, and the Questions are Easy

Via Kathy, as usual on a June Monday.

*My neighbor's trumpet vine is in bloom. 
What's your preferencee? 
Butterflies or Hummingbirds?
We have gorgeous blue and black butterflies here, so I'll go with them.


*What's your preference?
Boxed water or bottled water?
(I just found this boxed water and I am crazy about it)
I'd never heard of boxed water before.  Progressive Chicago, huh?  Bottled, then, for me.

*For next to your skin softness, 
do you prefer 
angora, cashmere, alpaca, or acyrlic?
Alpaca.  Even though this one seems unhappy with my choice:

*Do you have an interchangeable needle set or do you  prefer the individual circs?
I did break down and buy a set of square interchangeables.  Not for the circleness, but for the shape of the needles.

*Do you prefer an alcoholic drink before, during or after your dinner?  
I don't drink often enough to have an answer!

*What cuts into your knitting time more, 
others in your home or your own wanderings on the internet? 
Oh, Internet.  Easy. 

*Would you rather have a snowstorm as in Blizzard, or a heatwave with violent thunderstorms. 
Snow, snow, snow!!  I've been through enough Southern heatwaves.

*You just won a all expenses paid trip to a Fiber Festival.
Would you go alone or try to bring a knit pal along? 
I'd bring someone along, and plan to meet up with friends there.

Thanks again, Kathy, for the fun questions!

  1. AL's thinking about an interchangeable needle set so that prompted my question.
    I LOVE the warmth of Alpaca, but the fibers get up my nose and I start sneezing

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?

Hmmm?

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"?  


Insomnia

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.
