Monday Questions, I heart….

 

*What is your favorite fiber or blend to knit or crochet with?

(this is my cotton/lambswool blend.  I like blends the best.  Cotton and silk, merino and nylon, to name a few)

*What is your favorite fiber to wear? (cotton hands down)

dscf0194* Have you seen someone you know personally on television? (last night!  Unexpectedly.  We were watching some of the Westminster agility show and when they showed the judge we were shocked!  Anne Riba judged the 24 inch division and she taught us agility with Huck years ago!  Good for her. and good for the sport)

*Do you have a locket?  Who is in it? (I do.  I have a lock of hair in my locket.  A lock of my mom’s hair….Is that odd? )

*What is your favorite pizza topping?  (sausage…c’mon I’m Hungarian)

*The box of Valentine chocolates is in front of you.  What’s your pick of chocolates? (a dark chocolate cream filled with vanilla!!!)

*Is there a state you haven’t visited that you’d like to visit? (Oklahoma…to see Al)

*What’s the oldest thing in your wardrobe?  (probably a sweater that I knit years ago and now fit in again.)   I’m so glad I didn’t get rid of it. I tend to wear things out and shop very little for clothes.  To a fault.  If it weren’t for holidays and birthdays I probably wouldn’t have new clothes…I have a husband who WISHES I would shop)

*When are you most likely to give up on a knit project?

a)when you decide the pattern was too hard

b) when you decide the pattern was too easy

c) when you make too many mistakes

d) when you realize you cannot knit another stitch with THAT yarn, whatever it is

Finally

*Name one thing you love about your husband/friend/or a family member:

(Fireman : He encourages me to take some risks.  We would never have moved if it had been up to me.  I get so stuck in sameness.  It was a great thing for us to do.

Al: She makes me laugh, all the time.  She GETS my humor.

Zach: He is a fabulous listener.  He gives good advice when I ask for it. )

  4. I’m so glad you are continuing the Q & A’s!!
    1. My favorite fibers are silk and cotton and my favorite yarn is Blue Skies Skinny Cotton.
    2. I love wearing slik or cotton more than anything. I also have a pair of wool crepe slacks that I love to wear because of the sensuous feel of them.
    3. Our fireman son was on TV last week when they showed an apartment fire on the news.
    4. I have a locket my dad gave me on my 13th birthday. It has a picture of mom and dad in it.
    5. Pizza = Italian sausage and jalapenos.
    6. Valentine candy = chocolate and caramel.
    7. I’ve never been to North Dakota and would like to visit there.
    8. Three days ago I wore a 30 year old leopard printed shirt that I wore under a black suit when I worked at Neiman Marcus. It is very diaphanous so this time I wore it over a black tank.
    9. D sort of. Row 9 or 10 is the “kiss of death” for me. If I’m not enjoying the knit by then it’s history.
    10. Bill: Is so loving and takes good care of me. He supports me and takes my side, and always makes me laugh when I am angry.
    Our kids:: Bethany is my daughter and my best friend! Also, it amazes me that the guys really enjoy doing things with me. I go to more movies with son-in-law and my three boys than I do with Bill. I’m a lucky mom!!!

  5. 1. Dunno. I’m not really fussy about paying attention to the label. Just the price tag.
    2. Cotton also. I hate itchy stuff.
    3. Daughter has been on TV a lot with her skating team. The local news is always doing stories about them. She is in this month’s USFSA magazine for the charity work the team does.
    4. I have a tiny baby locket I wore when I was an infant. I don’t think it had anything in it and now that I think about it I don’t know where it is. Hmmmm……
    5. Mushrooms and black olives.
    6. The molasses chew in the Whitmans Sampler.
    7. Oregon. Son lived there for a while and said I would fit right in with all the other old hippies.
    8. I have an old plaid poncho I bought with my first paycheck when I was in high school. I also have my leather fringed jacket from my 60’s hippie days and a tapestry vest.
    9. I usually solider on come high or hell water. I’ve got the closet full of terrible knits to prove it.
    10. The Mister: He stays out of my way. I need space. Lots of space and he is happy to oblige.
    #1 Son: He’s an amazing hands on dad. The Grands love him.
    #2 Son: He’s fearless. He makes huge life changes without batting an eye.
    Daughter: She’s a mean girl with a heart. She gets what she wants. No prisoners taken.
    She’s not like me at all. I am a big wimp.
    Happy Valentine’s Day!
