For those who want an occasional Monday Q and A, I’m just wondering……
How do you Hygge?
(I bring a hot water bottle to bed with me, I knit under an electric throw after sundown, I wear my best knit slippers that stay up no matter (Grandmas_Boot_Slippers pdf) and I light candles. I do not go out on ice that is new like the crazy man On Lake Geneva)
Have you ever tried to feed the birds by hand?
(Why yes. I tried Sunday. I have a flinch, scream reaction to birds flying near my head. I . was. so. brave. Me and the chickadees. One came within arms reach . One flew onto the feeder. I may have flinched. I did not scream. I told myself to breathe. No takers from my hand yet.
I’m going to keep trying when the feeder is empty of course. Fireman just laughed and took the picture of me to send to my kids. )
Pets, can be….well messy. What’s your best cleaning advice?
(As seen on TV , Quick and Brite takes even the most disgusting cat vomit out of the carpet. Even an old stain. This stuff’s magic. My friend Sandy gave me some. She swears by it. I do too now!)
Have you emailed a famous person?
(Well, She’s the Empress of Dirt. I’m not sure she’s that famous, but I love her gardening ideas. I emailed her to ask about WINTER Sow methods. She says it works! She has not written about it. I put two more milk jugs out today with Hollyhocks seeds in them.)
Are you making a Hat for the PussyHat project?
(Why yes I am thanks to Meredith blogging about it. I decided to tell my friend Anne, a good nurse buddy also retired now, because she crochets. Well guess what? Not only has she made 5 of them already….she’s GOING To the March in Washington DC on the 21st. So I’m delivering my hat to her and she’s going to pass it out to someone who needs one. I want to see all those amazing women Marching with their pink hats on and I want to be a small part of it)
Did you have to check up on a gift knit to see if got there?
(Yes. Uncharacteristically, Uncle Billy never let me know if he got the socks I knitted and sent to him. I emailed him. “Did you get my surprise?” He DID. He said he was CRAZY for the colorway. His words: Crazy about the colors” )
Would you even think of 17 pairs of socks in 2017?
(I am thinking of it!!! I did not complete 16 in 2016 but I started out with a bang. There is a Ravelry group for 17 in 17. I may join. I LOVE to knit socks. The sock yarn choices are always abundant and within my budget. Fair warning, its a sock year for sure. )
Did you watch the Golden Globes?
(Just a tad. Then Fireman and I watched the amazing BILLY JOEL concerts on axstv. We loved him then, we love him now. )
What’s your quickest/fastest/ knit Stitch type?
(Al thinks stockinette slows her, because it bores her. I think I’m fastest in stockinette in the round. I love S. in the R. ! Ribbing slows me down but I do love a good snug hat rib or sock cuff rib. )
Have you had a recipe fail lately?
(Yes. I made sweet potato chips. They were fine, but way way way too much work. Individually turning each little chip in the oven and babysitting them …Not worth the effort. )
That’s it for today! Enjoy. Join along if you wish. I love to read your answers.
