Most Excellent Questions

*Do you prefer a digital or an analog clock?
Analog.  Digital cameras aren't pretty;  analogs are.
*How good is your sense of direction?  (We are talking about times when you did not have your phone to use as a compass.)
Pretty good.  Like Kathy, I use the sun to determine the compass points.

*What do you like to knit in worsted weight yarn?
Just about anything.  The only weight I don't enjoy working with is lace.

*What was your favorite subject in school?
Social studies.  Big surprise, huh?

*Have you pulled weeds yet?
No.  I'm not a go-outside-and-work-in-the-dirt kind of person.

*Do you figure out who you caught a cold from?

*Are you ripping out anything you knit this weekend?
No.  It was a pretty good weekend of work.

*Do you have your appendix?
I do.

*Do you have your tonsils?
No.  I had them taken out when I was 24.  It caused the worse pain I've ever been in.  Yes, worse than labor.

*What would you name a colorway based on your weather this morning?
Too Lovely For A Monday.

*What would you name a colorway today based on your morning weather?


  1. I love your colorway name. Im imagining bright blue skies, a few white clouds and a yellow sun in the mix. Ouch Tonsils out seems to be a truly painful event for many. I suppose because we normally swallow so often and don't realize it. When you hurt to swallow it must be the worst!!

  2. Totally with you on analog vs. digital clocks based on the visuals.

#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?
