Well, Then

In the past few days, I've been showered (to be nice) / bombarded (to be a little harsher) with messages telling me that I should stop the Knitters' Hunk and Knitters' Chick contests.  They are being called "sexist" and "shallow" and "silly."

This is not the next KH / KC post I had planned, but, things are what they are.  Please let me know what you think.  


  1. Well, right now the vote is 100% in favor of continuing. And as soon as someone disagrees with me, it will be 50-50.

  2. I have no problem being "silly". And wanting to knot with/for/near someone doesn't seem shallow or sexist to me. It is nice to come together as a community to have fun. I'm sorry people have been saying these things to you. How surprising.

  3. Sounds to me as if your blog has gotten popular enough to come under attack. The thing to do with those comments is delete them and move on. If someone dislikes the hunk-and-chick things they should just not read them and GO AWAY. Phooey. I like the idea of being fun. Ignore the idiots. And be glad you're so popular that someone wants to bug you!

  4. Please host a poll tomorrow where you ask if we are pro or con annoying commenters.

  5. I'm thinking those folks need to find something constructive to do with their time and let us alone to have fun. Geeze...

  6. Ignore the suckers. They don't need to look if they don't like it.

#Chewy Influencer, March

Well, if you're a bit sensitive, you might want to turn away now.

One of my choices to try from Chewy was Fussie Cat dry food:

Since Madeleine is on a restricted diet, only Erin and Riley tried this.  And one, or both, of them developed --- how should I put this --- lower intestinal tract issues.  I don't know which it was (or, again, if it was both) because everyone has free access to every litter box.  Still, things were messy.

I believe this is the first product for the cats that I've had to truly negatively rate.  Sorry, Chewy.

As a Chewy Influencer, I am allowed to choose products to test --- for free --- each month.  There is no financial transaction of any kind.

Chewy Influencer, January, Part One

I have not been following the Influencer blogging rules, and for that I apologize.  I am supposed to post one entry for each product I try.  Here, then, is the first review of 2018.
I must start with a hearty thank you to my FedEx driver.  This was 40 pounds of litter packed along with a case of canned cat food.  That box was very, very, very heavy.
I like this litter.  While it doesn't seem to control odor any better than other litters we have used in this house, it is easier to scoop.  (The "lumps" don't cling to the sides of the litter box.)  It is also helpful that, despite being difficult to move around, the litter comes in a 40 pound bag.  Having three cats, we go through a lot of litter here, and having this much around the house keeps me from having to go buy smaller boxes or bags every few days.
So, thumbs up to Frisco litter.  As part of the Influencer program, I request and receive products to review monthly.  No money is exchanged at all betwee…

Winning Girl

VERA!  You will be getting this week's countdown prize.  If you send me your address, that is.  😄  Send it to handeyecrafts*at*hotmail*dot*com, and your mailbox will soon have a visitor.
You should probably know that Vera's answer was "Napping Girl," which also fits me.  Since socks sort of started this whole thing, I tried to imagine what a pair with each of your answers might look.  
Camille's "Baking Girl" is a girl with oven mitts on pulling cupcakes out of an oven.
Kathy's "Nature Girl," as per her answer, would be a girl with an owl.
Grace's "Sipping Tea Girl" is a girl in a comfy chair by a window, teacup in hand.
Bridget's "Laughing Girl" is a girl with her head thrown back in sheer delight.
Twinnie's "Alpaca Castrating Girl" is. . .
um. . .
well. . .
There's a girl. . .
and, uh . . .

Boy, we all congratulate Vera on her big win, don't we?
