Best FO of 2016
Al: Vitamin D sweater, Kathy : Fade To Grey Poncho
Something a family member can name that you knit for them. Al: chevron socks and purple socks given by Kathy… Kathy: Al gave me Tin Can Knit hat cream, Sitka pattern
(Can I just say that when I asked this question to Al, Zach and Fireman they all began shouting answers. Be still my knit mom heart. They recalled things I’ve knit for them! Many things. Aw shucks. )
A holiday yarn gift: Al: Santa gave Al: Crazy Skeins by Stonehedge FiberMIll, Kathy: Al gave me Wandering Wool sock yarn in Azalea colorway. WHEEEEEEE
Presents your pets got for this Holiday season. Al: None . (Oh dear I must send them something from Grammy. ) Al says they got a new scratching post in November and a water fountain . Kathy: Yes! Our cats got Catnip toys and a foil ball . Of course all the Christmas boxes seemed as soon as emptied, the perfect gifts for the cats. OH plus a big silky bag to play in courtesy Amazon.com wrapping division.
Great Tip to share that you learned this year. Al: Learned to put cooking sherry in her soups. She also learned when making latka’s to squeeze the water off it, then let it settle until the starch separates. Then add starch part back to the potatoes and they bind together better. Kathy:Use a color catcher when you wash your knits with red in them! This was a super wonderful tip from one of you!
How did you surprise yourself in 2016? Al: I became a travel nurse in 2016. Kathy: I moved after 33 years of living in our house in Glenview Illinois! I surprised myself with how easily I adapted here .. I love it in the woods.
Name a favorite Book you read in 2016 Al : Favorite books: Night Circus, Attatchments, Sleeping Giants. Kathy: Jen Hatmakers books .
What is the latest you stayed up in 2016? Al: Worked a night shift and stayed up all night. UGH. In Knoxville. (Kathy comments : I can just feel that 0400 fog and brain freeze. It literally hurts at that hour.) Kathy: the night the Cubs WON THE WORLD SERIES we stayed up until about 2 am. It was sooooo fun.
Name a play or concert you went to in 2016 Al: The Oklahoma Christmas Carol and Pentatonix Music Group Concert in December. Kathy: Teresa Caputo and Brit Floyd Concert with Fireman. He loves Brit Floyd. Me? What a weird group …..
A new dish, drink or dessert you found in 2016 ….Al: Smitten Kitchen’s Eggplant parmesan recipe . Kathy: Skinny Girl Margarita …. Available at stores. Mmmmmm. Not really skinny but real good!
