This week, you can win
two skeins of Navajo (Color 04) from Tahki Select, 
one hank of Cascade Heritage sock yarn in color 5632 (dark plum)
you answer this question before week's end:

If a portfolio were made of your finished knitting projects, which would you want on the cover?


  1. My Match & Move Shawl - I love it!!

  2. I would have said my Match & Move too, Vera, but I just finished a Koi Pond shawl and oh my. Terrific colors and never a dull moment. I'm kayT on Ravelry if you want to see it. So, Vera, can I see your M&M on Ravelry?

    1. Oh dear! I don't put anything on Ravelry -- too lazy. I do have a blog ( though, and pictures are there (early May). Heading over to Ravelry to check out your Koi Pond!

  3. Yay Koi Pond! Yes I will agree with that. I'm going to look at the Match & Move now!

  4. I would want it to show a person walking in an autumn woods, wearing a handknit sweater (I haven't knit an adult sweater in a long time but I would make one for the portfolio). Handknit socks would be visible above the person's stylish shoes. The portfolio would be about socks since that's about all I knit lately.

  5. The look for the book
    written at a crawl
    would have to be
    my very next shawl.

    1. Love your little poem Kathy B!!

  6. probably the shawl I designed for Hearts vines and flowers, it is my favorite accomplishment

  7. It would have to be the Colinette mitered square afghan I made about 20 years ago from a kit I impulse-bought in England. It's on my Rav projects page.

  8. Maybe one of my Pixie Dust blankets by Knit Collage since I've done soooo many (a dozen?) and they are sparkly. But I like my Big Stitch Rug(s) a lot. They are better in person than in photo though...

#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?
