[So far, 3 ladies have expressed interest in the swap.  We'd love to have more of you, though.  It won't be a tough one;  in fact, I'm going to send you what you need for the swap's main part.  Please think it over --- I'll announce the details on Wednesday.]


It's Monday, which means it's time for Kathy's Questions!  And for those of you who didn't know, Kathy has a new blog address;  click on her name above to get there.

Here we go.
*Have you ever petted an angora bunny?  It seems like something I should have done, but don't remember a specific instance.
*Do you have any novelty yarn in your stash? Yes, some Habu made of pineapple plants. 
*I’m maintaining my weight but I have to admit I still have to have: Creamer in my coffee and sugar.  Is there something  you simply can’t give on with your food life?  Dr Pepper.
*Do you swim during the winter months? I don't swim at all.  I never learned how.
*What are you having for dinner tonight? Chinese, via delivery.  Pan-fried noodles.
*The weather has been such a gift this November. It is sunny and 50s and that is just unheard of now.   Friends are putting up their Christmas decor.  are you?  No.  I start the day after Thanksgiving.
*Are you a Black Friday Cyber Monday shopper?  Only if I happen to think of something on that day.  I don't have plans or lists or anything.
*Did you cast on this weekend?  I did, also three times.  Two scarves and a cowl. 
*Did you see the Supermoon yet?  Yes!  Stunning. 
*Would you like to recommend a movie?  (must entertaining and light)  "GalaxyQuest" --- really funny.  "Crazy in Alabama."  "The Philadelphia Story."  "Bringing Up Baby."

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"?  


Babes

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.
