  1. Kathy b’s answers :
    *I have not tried a hostess cupcake knock off, but I think they look a thousand times better than the original.
    *I just learned about rolled ice cream. A store is opening in our town. It looks like they are making thin fudge with a scraper on an iced surface.( Kind of.) They pour cream on and add ingredients. It looks very labor intensive. I imagine long lines…and many points! You could google it and see the process.
    *My favorite episode of Modern Family is when Mitch and Cam decide on Lily’s guardianship.
    *Zach gave us a pretty hammock for Christmas. We are trying to figure out where to put it and enjoy it.
    *I have knit outside on vacation a week ago. It is nearly 60 here this morning so I’m rushing to get groceries and hoping for some porch knitting by lunchtime.
    *I guess my go to is Cascade 220. Not sure. Looking for your ideas here!
    *Our Ice maker is very noisy! But I love the ice.
    *It is much easier for me to give others slack. I currently need to give myself a little slack. It takes me a while to settle down and I’m just getting there after the trip. So what? right?
    *I own more than 20 circs. Different styles and brands.
    *I’m so happy the weather is warm today and yesterday. I have more than one sign: the goldfinches are yellowing again, tulip leaves are emerging, and the cats are all shedding…..a lot!

  2. No Hostess Cupcakes or knock offs or rolled ice cream here… perhaps I am missing out on the finer things of life lol

    Yes, we have a hammock and I am jonesing to use it and longing for the days when I can knit outside again!

    I own a plethora of circs… with a strangely high ratio of US sz 8’s…

    My favorite spring sign this week… burgeoning lilac leaves!

  3. My answers are up on my blog —- http://justd2me.blogspot.com

    It was a fun bunch of questions again this time, although I think I missed one (the TV episode). I’m not going back to correct that. I don’t really watch much TV — sports and the news. There is a girl on Jeopardy from the University of Central Florida. Maybe I’ll count HER appearance as my favorite episode. LOL

  4. 1. Never seen them but they look yummy!
    2. That sounds yummy too!
    3. Hmmm……it would have to be the Gilmore Girls. Any episode where Luke and Lorelei realize they are in love. Or maybe Friends when Rachel has the baby.
    4. I had one but it broke. The tree broke too.
    5. At the bank, in the car. It was cold out so I don’t think that really counts.
    6. Wool of the Andes or even Wool Ease. I am a cheapskate when it comes to big projects.
    7. The washer but since it’s downstairs it doesn’t bother me. It drives The Mister crazy though.
    8. Others.
    9.Lots and lots and lots. I really need to organize that mess someday.
    10. The Mayapples which just popped up yesterday. I also like the Jack in the Pulpits.
    Happy Thursday!

  15. I expect I have tried a knock off, because I am a sucker for chocolate cupcakes! Never heard of rolled ice cream. I imagine I would love it.

    I can’t think of a favorite episode… unless it is the NCIS when Tony learns he is a dad…

    No hammock here, but I would love one.

    No knitting outside yet, but give me another month or so!

      1. And again! Maybe I hit reply? Maybe it doesn’t want me to admit the huge number of circs?? Dozens. Size 0 – 17, many sets on the 0 -11 range.

        Oops, I skipped slack. Much easier to cut it for others than myself.

        Spring? I saw Day lilies poking up today, it will be spring soon!
