KAH-veezel and KAH-westjuns

Aside from sports and news, I am not a television watcher.  If I get wind of an interesting-sounding program, I'm not above bingeing.  Right now, "Person of Interest" is where it's at.  The premise of the show always intrigued me, and there are worse ways to spend 40+ minutes than watching the excellent acting of Michael Emerson, and looking at Jim Caviezel:

Between that, football, and the Ryder Cup, there was lots of quality TV/knitting time this weekend.  The windows open to a Fall day, football game on television, knitting --- that is definitely a Happy Place for me.

Kathy asks:
*Which did you last wear?
Flannel shirt or Sweatshirt?
Sweatshirt.  I haven't owned a flannel shirt since high school.

*Which chart is easier for you to read?
Fair isle or Cables?
I don't find any chart easy to read, which is why I avoid them like I avoid the plague-causing DPNs.

*Do you prefer a turtleneck or a cowl neck?
Turtleneck.  I can't ever get a cowl neck to lay right.  Plus, turtlenecks show jewelry off better, and are much easier to deal with if one wears a scarf.

*Have you been on a ghost walk?  Where?

*What is the bulk of your stash...
sock yarn? Worsted? Bulky?
I'm guessing sock, but I also have a lot of baby-weight.  Is that consider Fingering, or DK? 

*Have you tried acupuncture?
Would you?
I have, and it was amazing.

*Have you eaten Halloween candy yet this year?
No;  I don't do Halloween.

*Have you seen Christmas decorations yet?
Yes.  And it's wrong, wrong, wrong.

*What's your charity of choice to donate to ?

*You are at the apple orchard,
do you buy 
I'd look at the doughnuts first.  If there weren't any that I wanted, I go to cider.


  1. TOmorrow, Im eating a donut bite. Points or not. I want one bite of a deep fried cinnamon sugar donut. :)

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"?  


Hooray;  baby giraffe has arrived! Next to his parents, he looks almost like a toy, but when you put him next to anything else, you realize his size.  He's already taller than me: 5'9".
There's a naming contest for him.  I submitted "Reveille," as his arrival trumpeted us all awake yesterday.  That came to me as I was tumbling names around in my head.  His sire's name is Oliver, which, backward --- revilo --- brought Reveille to mind.
Babies are also front and center knitting-wise.  Two people in my orbit are expecting --- one having a boy, the other a girl.  I'm going with basics just now --- burp cloths, wash cloths, etc.  There's a little time yet in both pregnancies, so there's time to decide on the fancier things.  This is my first knitwear model, now waiting to be a big brother.  Time does fly.
