More on Barrel Racing fun in another post. Sorry for the blur, suffice to say they moved fast and I didn’t want to use a flash and disturb already revved up horses.
HERE WE GO. These questions came, mostly, from you! Thanks. Have fun with it today.

*What’s your favorite spicy food? (Amy again)
*What’s a color you never wear? (Thanks Kim, who always plays Q and A)
*When sock knitters want a bigger needle project, what do you knit? (Thanks Sandy)

*Do you feel you are becoming a better knitter or have your skills leveled off? (lil ol me)
*When’s the last time you broke a needle? (me)
Here’s My answers :
A fear that I conquered: I didn’t fly for many many years. Now I can fly again. I don’t love doing it, but I can. Having said that, I just watched SULLY and it was at times terrifying ……
My favorite spicy food: I love blackened chicken or fish.
One color I never ever wear: Yellow! Oh boy, it turns my skin a sickly color.
A recent big needle project: The Fade to Gray Poncho is knit up on big needles in bulky yarn. The pattern is free on Ravelry. The knitting is very easy. Big needles end up hurting my hands/joints. That’s why I love me some sock yarn and tiny needles.
I haven’t read Shakespeare since High school, but I have gone to a Shakespeare in the park play. Ten years ago. Othello. Heavy….stuff
I am gregarious but at times of the day I want to be solitary. Im very slow to wake up. I am more introverted than you’d imagine. In some circumstances I am actually nervous to meet people.
My favorite cookie recipe is a complete cheat. I like to buy the batter from a place near my old house and just scoop and bake. The whole cookie process is too long for me. The fact that I made our gingerbread house pieces is crazy pants for me. So I admit it, while I love cookies so so much, I don’t love the process. I prefer cookies to all other foods I think. Especially now that I’ve been on Weight Watchers for nearly 2 years. Now all i can think of is cookies, thanks Stef!!!
I do not dip my PB and J. Ive never heard of such a thing. Still learning things about Fireman after many many years!!
I do think that my skills are improving. I’m much more likely to knit a pair of socks that fits well and I could give away. I just conquered kitchener so that’s huge for me. I’m eager to try new sock patterns. For years It was enough just to get the sock in plain vanilla off the needles. Now I’m really enjoying taking them up a notch.
I broke a wooden needle yesterday. I love my wooden double points but they are rather toothpick ish (in zero and 1s and 2s.) I literally bend them, but it keeps my joints happy to knit with wood. So bummer, I broke one yesterday. Good thing they are not very expensive.
Thanks for playing, reading and lurking. See you in the comments today
