Monday Q and A, August 7th, 2016

unnamed

  • I didn’t go to Stitches Midwest, but my pal Karen did. She saw this creation.   Would you knit and wear this skirt?
  • Have you knitted or crocheted with beads?
  • Do you wear eye shadow?
  • Do you like when men grow their hair long?
  • Where do you get most of your knit/crochet project inspiration from?
  • What color are your toenails painted now?
  • How do you store your knitted/crocheted gifts until you give them?
  • The name of the last lake or river,   you saw or visited is?
  • Elephant ears, lemon whip or shaved ice at the fair?
  • The last adult beverage you drank was a:

 

My answers: 

*while I think some women could wear this skirt and look fabulous, I think it is made for the tall and skinny.  I’m not tall or skinny.   I hope friend Meg knits it and wears it as is the plan. 

*I am starting a beaded purse/bag.  Just stringing the beads was hypnotic.  Look out, I’m going to like this! 

*I haven’t worn eye shadow in a long time, a very long time.  Say 1978?  I simply rub my eyes too much, and am too lazy to wear it.  Fireman just may not know who I was if I put some on!

 

*Yes.  I love clean long hair on men.  If they happen to be Asian or have super straight hair I love it all the more.  In a sleek ponytail.  I’m thinking of who I can nominate for Kim’s Hunks with long hair.  

*Truly, I get most of my inspiration for knitting in yarn shoppes.  I came across the beaded bag today in Needles N Pins and was sure I had to knit it.  I went in looking for a shawl pattern. Jokes on me! 

*Toes in : Im Not a Waitress 

*Doreen at Needles n Pins suggested I wrap my gifts in tissue and put them in a gift box . Stick them in a drawer until I give them.  Easy enough.  I may put some lavender in the drawer too.  She did not suggest plastic bags.  She wanted them to breathe.  

*The last Lake I saw was Silver lake . I passed it today near the town of Millard.  Pretty, quiet lake with lily pads.  

*This is so tough. I love a lemon whip but I love shaved ice.  I’ll say shaved ice 

*The last adult beverage I drank was a mai tai.  Mmmmmmm. 

Have fun with the Q and A.  It has become a fun routine for me.  Thanks for the encouragement Kim, Dee and the rest of you!!!

    I’d knit it if someone else wanted it, but I would NEVER wear it.

    •Have you knitted or crocheted with beads?
    I knit with them a lot. working on the moon and sky shawl by Jem Arrowsmith now. The beads I chose are very subtle and I love it!

    •Do you like when men grow their hair long?
    hmmm usually not, but my great nephew looks incredibly handsome with a ponytail, so I guess it depends.

    blogs, ravelry, my LYS knitting group.

    •What color are your toenails painted now?
    sparkly aqua green

    •How do you store your knitted/crocheted gifts until you give them?
    neatly folded in a box or bag (not plastic) with some lavender. Ya know, if I am all organized. Usually, though, on my needles, racing to finish the knit in time to block, dry and wrap moments before it needs to be given.

    •The name of the last lake or river, you saw or visited is? This morning I saw the Penobscot River, the Orland River, Toddy Pond and Patten Pond on my way to work.

    •Elephant ears, lemon whip or shaved ice at the fair?
    Are elephant ears fried dough? If so, that’s my choice, if they aren’t then shaved ice.

    •The last adult beverage you drank was a:

    so long ago that I don’t recall. Likely a glass of wine, but it was over 15 years ago now, so I can’t say for sure.

  5. I didn’t go to Stitches Midwest, but my pal Karen did. She saw this creation. Would you knit and wear this skirt? – Maybe! It depends on how cold I am. I would probably never knit one for myself, but a knitted skirt would be cute on a little girl.

    Do you wear eye shadow? not usually, no.

    Where do you get most of your knit/crochet project inspiration from? TV. Or, if I’m at work on a conference call!
    What color are your toenails painted now? white… but I need to paint them again! It’s all chipped and gross
    How do you store your knitted/crocheted gifts until you give them? I wrap them and put them on a shelf in the spare room.

  7. 1. Hmm, Even if I had the body to wear that skirt, I would not make it or wear it.

  9. Honestly, the first thing I thought when seeing that skirt was how heavy it must be. . . My mother used to do custom knitting, and one of her customers always wanted skirts. Even when Mama used thin yarn and tiny needles, I couldn’t imagine having to actually wear one of them.

  10. Enjoyed your responses…the wrapping knitted gifts in tissue paper is a great idea;I do keep a bit o’ lavender with my yarns but hadn’t thought about gifts…

  11. Would you knit and wear this skirt? Absolutely not. I don’t think I have ever had the figure for that.
    Have you knitted or crocheted with beads? Not yet.
    Do you wear eye shadow? Not since, um, er, a long time ago.
    Do you like when men grow their hair long? Absolutely. Elder Son’s hair is as long as mine (mid-back).
    Where do you get most of your knit/crochet project inspiration from? Ravelry and blogs. And I get way too much inspiration — it would take me many lifetimes to knit all the things that I want to make.
    What color are your toenails painted now? Not painted. Rotten, uncurable toenail fungus means I do not want to draw attention to them.
    How do you store your knitted/crocheted gifts until you give them? Gifts?
    The name of the last lake or river, you saw or visited is? Antler Lake (it’s right out my window)
    Elephant ears, lemon whip or shaved ice at the fair? None of the above. I did have a large lemonade at our county fair a couple weeks ago. And the year that a lobster roll stand was next our tent was sheer heaven.
    The last adult beverage you drank was a: couple glasses of cab last night.
