Monday Q and A March 13, 2017

There are two sets of questions.  If you live in the snowing area/snowstorm area you answer group one.  (the foccacia bread in the above photo was a Weight Watcher recipe that came out great.  Google WW foccacia bread and it will come up. Delish)

If you live in the warmth of our beautiful country, you answer group two.

Group one: SNOW:

  1.  You are snowed in.  What 3 things do you need to have for a storm?
  2. Do you eat corned beef and cabbage?
  3. What is your favorite hat pattern to knit?
  4. Are you wearing wooly handknit socks today? What color?
  5. How do you deal with  your hair drying out in the winter?

Group two: the lucky ones right now.

  1. What is your favorite warm weather yarn?
  2. Do you eat corned beef and cabbage?
  3. How many pairs of sandals do you own?
  4. Do you miss the snow? (cause I’ll send you some!)
  5. How do you deal with humidity and your hair?

My Answers and as you know I’m in group ONE.

  1. I need yarn to knit with, a radio with batteries in case we lose power, and popcorn.  Lately I prefer Boom Chicka.
  2. I do not like corned beef and cabbage.  I do like green cupcakes and green cookies and green frosting on cake.
  3. My favorite hat pattern is Susan B. Anderson’s Modern Rib hat. Easy. Fun. Bound to fit because of the ribbing.
  4. I am .  And they are a pair of orange hand knit socks today!
  5. Help.  I am not dealing well with my dry hair. I think it has to do with needing a water softener in this are due to the well.  I’m going to try a leave in conditioner if I can find one!

  2. You should be able to find leave-in conditioner at your local drugstore or at Target or maybe even at the grocery store.
    1. I don’t knit warm weather patterns, but I’m thinkin’ about it. I guess I would at least need a light scarf or shawl. I have my Hitchhiker right now. I guess fingering weight would be my warm weather yarn.
    2. Yes, I eat corned beef and cabbage. I had bad memories of it when my grandmother used to make it; she’s not a good cook but obviously my mum is. We only eat it 1-2 times a year.
    3. I have one pair, my Madden Girls that are like Birk knock offs and that have been worn to death that the bottom is nearly bald. I plan to treat myself to some real Birkenstocks soon.
    4. We don’t get snow in the east of the Bay Area; we’re not high up enough.
    5. I usually chop off my hair during the summer. This year, I’ll have to figure it out, probably braiding or twisting pieces.

      1. Yes. It’s a micro bob up to my ears now. I’m getting it cut soon; I need shape and texture; I was going to try to grow it one length with bangs, but I need texture as it’s so me. Sweet of you to ask ^__^.

  3. When snowed in, I need electricity, a heat source, and water.
    Yes, I rarely eat corned beef and cabbage.
    i like a Plain Jane hat with a 2×2 rib brim – I can add stripes or stitch details to the body of the hat if I feel the urge.
    Yes, purple stripes are the socks I’m wearing today.
    An oil treatment usually works well on dry hair.

  4. Hi Kathy B! I’m in the line of the snow, so snowy answers are over on my blog. That focaccia bread looks awfully good…I may need to try that recipe.

  5. 1. Batteries, a good book to read (or listen to) and most importantly bottled water (we have a well-ugh).
    2. I don’t est the corned beef but I do cook it for The Mister. We have cabbage, potatoes and carrots boiled together all the time. I even made a soda bread on Friday. The Mister is Irish. Very.
    3. Any simple lined one. One layer of hat is not enough for our cold winds. I get a headache. Two layers does the trick.
    4. Yes. It’s freezing. I have on two pairs of multi colors on top of each other. One sock weight, one thick handspun from a fleece I washed.
    5. Mine never does I am sad to say. Thin, oily and limp. That’s my curse.

  6. What is your favorite warm weather yarn? Anything with cotton or bamboo.
    Do you eat corned beef and cabbage? I have a great recipe for roasted corned beef but I don’t like it boiled.
    How many pairs of sandals do you own? Just a couple, not too useful in the rain!
    Do you miss the snow? (cause I’ll send you some!) Nope, it’s really crazy on our hills when it snows, and you don’t have to shovel rain. ;>)
    How do you deal with humidity and your hair? Not well!

  8. It’s so good to take some time away from the madness and answer your Q & A!!
    1. Cotton, Cotton, Cotton, I can’t get enough of it–all year really!
    2. I never eat corned beef and cabbage. It is way to salty for me!
    3. I have 4 pairs of sandals but I only wear two of them. One pair is for evening so I seldom wear them anymore, and the other pair has a higher heel that is uncomfortable for everyday.
    4. Please send me lot of snow! I miss it terribly!
    5. My hair is curly and I gave up long ago trying to straighten it. I just say, “Come on humidity, do your worst.”

  9. 1. You are snowed in. What 3 things do you need to have for a storm?
    My knitting, my cats, and some sweet treats!
    2. Do you eat corned beef and cabbage?
    I don’t mind a bit of cabbage, but no corned beef, thanks.
    3. What is your favorite hat pattern to knit?
    The one I’m designing right now! (Though I like the Cranberry Bonnet too)
    4. Are you wearing wooly handknit socks today? What color?
    Of course! I’ve got my Johnny Jump Up socks on – nice and spring like in purple, green, yellow and white.
    5. How do you deal with your hair drying out in the winter?
    I don’t really have much of a problem with that – my hair is naturally pretty oily. Though it never hurts to invest in a good conditioner (just to help with the tangles!)

  10. 1. You are snowed in.  What 3 things do you need to have for a storm? Yarn, Blankets and U-tube videos. It’s how I spent most of this winter!
    2 . Do you eat corned beef and cabbage? Yuck! I dislike it intensely but I do like the sweet stuff like you do. Green cookies, cake, ice cream. Yum.
    3. What is your favorite hat pattern to knit? My newest favorite for adults is the “Teresa Hat” that I copied from a machine made hat. It’s really comfortable and warm too.
    4. Are you wearing wooly handknit socks today? What color? Yes. My pink “Hermione’s Everyday” socks.
    5. How do you deal with  your hair drying out in the winter? It doesn’t seem to dry out too much which is surprising considering how dry my skin is.

    Happy Monday!
    Blessings,

  11. 1-cotton/acrylic blend 2 No to corned beef n cabbage 3 I own two pair of dress sandals; crocs only, five pair of crocs that are flip flops and one pair of Keens instead of sneakers-that is my shoe dept! 4 No I do not miss the snow, I look at pictures on tv and shudder! 5 Humidity can be a problem if your hair is longer than 2″ because you will be too warm but using a hair gel of good quality keeps it from being out of control! (hairspray for dry and flyaway in winter!)

  12. Downtown Chicago is all snowed in and it is so much fun!! This is the first time living in lake effect country where I haven’t had to worry about shoveling my way out, driving in it, or worrying about freezing pipes! I would have been mighty disappointed if we went all winter without one decent lake effect snow event. All those winters spent living under feet and feet of snow in upstate NY almost made me dislike snow :o)

    When snowed in I need yarn, a fully loaded (and charged) kindle, and the dogs. So I guess that’s four things :o)

    I love corned beef and cabbage and could eat it year round.

    I have a very basic vanilla hat pattern, but I am getting ready to buy a cabled hat pattern from Brooklyn Tweed/Jared Flood to use my leftover Shelter yarn on.

    I’m not wearing handknit socks…I absolutely cannot stand the feel of handknit socks. I’ve tried all kinds of different wool, some cotton ones. I just can’t do it.

    I have switched to Kerastase shampoo and it REALLY did the trick for my winter hair. I also have some Aveda hair oil that i use VERY sparingly, a little goes a long way. The Kerstase is the best fix though.
