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.

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"?  


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.
