Thursday Q and A 2020


Face tune skirt

*I will probably never knit this skirt. But I am completely enchanted with it. I want it now. Is there something you adore but doubt you will ever knit?

*I will probably never sky dive. Will you?
*I will probably never go to another high school reunion? Will you?

*I taught myself Tunisian Knitting or is it Crocheting? I did a few rows and stopped. I probably won’t be trying that again soon. Is there something you just tried and thought ….no….I don’t want to to knit this?

*I probably won’t knit another sweater for myself. This is not because I don’t love to , but because I can’t stand the fabric close to my skin. Do you have weird skin triggers? Last night in a long sleeve cotton turtle neck I had to get it OFF me after being fine in it all day. Maybe I should have been a nudist.

*I probably won’t ice fish again. We are already seeing nightly news , night after night, of folks and dogs and coyotes etc going through the ice. Would you go out on the ice?

*I probably won’t do much reading soon. I will be listening to podcasts , however. Some are very good. Some are not. I can tell in the first five minutes if I am going to like it. How long does it take you with a book or a podcast? (Terrible, Thanks For Asking. First one i listened to was about a nurse……….FASCINATING)

*I probably won’t bake another cake again for a long time. I’m just no good at them. We have so many amazing bakeries here. BUT I will make Irish soda bread soon. What Won’t you make/cook/bake again soon?

Have a great day my knit blog pals!

  1. I have yet to listen to new podcasts. Haven’t had time and have been more into K-pop. I do want to listen to one of the Harry Potter ones. There’s one that focuses on the women of the series and another that relates a word to each chapter.

    No way!
    *I will probably never go to another high school reunion? Will you?
    No, I keep in touch all I need to now.

    I’m usually committed but sometimes it just isn’t all I had hoped it to be!
    Do you have weird skin triggers?
    No, as long as it isn’t tight.

  3. * Is there something you adore but doubt you will ever knit?
    A. A swing dress.

    *I will probably never sky dive. Will you?
    A. I won’t say never; I feel like I’d do it!

    *I will probably never go to another high school reunion? Will you?
    A. I’ve never been to one yet. I’m not interested in looking back.

    * Is there something you just tried and thought ….no….I don’t want to to knit this?
    A. That happens often…I lose interest, then pick it back up later!

    * Do you have weird skin triggers?
    A. I can’t stand anything around my neck, especially on the back of my neck.

    * Would you go out on the ice?
    A. No. I would never. Living near Lake Erie, I’ve heard too many horror stories.

    * How long does it take you with a book or a podcast?
    A. I read quickly. If the book is really good, I will stop for a while to make it last longer. I tried podcasts, but did not care for it.

    * What Won’t you make/cook/bake again soon?
    A. I don’t eat a lot of sweets. But I won’t bake pies, period. We have a wonderful pie shop nearby, so why bother?

  4. *Is there something you adore but doubt you will ever knit?
    I haven’t ruled out any knitting yet, but I’m still fairly new to it.

    *I will probably never sky dive. Will you?
    Not a chance. I hate falling.

    *I will probably never go to another high school reunion. Will you?
    Nope. I absolutely hated high school and have no desire to see any of them again (except two good friends I still see when I go down to visit my parents).

    *Is there something you just tried and thought ….no….I don’t want to knit this?
    I did give up on a Sacre Cour shawl because it was waaaay too advanced for me, but I am planning to go back and try again now I know what I’m doing.

    * Do you have weird skin triggers?
    There are certain scratchy fabrics that I can’t even bear to touch, never mind wear next to my skin. My friends always laugh at me when we go clothes shopping and I have to feel everything before I decide if I like it or not.
    On particularly overwhelming days I can’t even stand my own hair touching me. They’re not fun.

    *Would you go out on the ice?
    Probably not, I have a phobia of deep water.

    *How long does it take you with a book or a podcast?
    I can generally tell from the first page of a book whether I will enjoy it or not. Mostly I’ll persevere even if I don’t LOVE it, but I have occasionally just given up on a book.

    *What Won’t you make/cook/bake again soon?
    Proper yeast bread that takes a whole afternoon to do properly. I’m just too busy at the moment!

  5. I probably will attend a high school reunion, but only because I’ve never been to any of my past ones. I do attend my college ones.

    And I probably won’t listen to more podcasts. I went through a phase of listening to them when iPods first came out and they were new, but then the ones I liked ended and I saw no reason to go in search of others when I could just listen to audiobooks instead.

  6. Is there something you adore but doubt you will ever knit? Probably a lace weight colorwork sweater. I love how they look, but I’m not patient.

    I will probably never sky dive. Will you? No. If given the opportunity, I try to avoid peeing my pants.

    I will probably never go to another high school reunion? Will you? No. I went to my 20 year reunion and I only got through it by drinking too much.

    Is there something you just tried and thought ….no….I don’t want to to knit this? Two at a time socks.

    Do you have weird skin triggers? No,I’m lucky to be able to wear wool.

    Would you go out on the ice? I would only if it was very cold and had been in a long time. I probably won’t ice fish, but I will ice skate.

    How long does it take you with a book or a podcast? I read about a book a week. Twice that if I’m into reading. I finish a podcast in one walk.

    What Won’t you make/cook/bake again soon? Anything with apples. Being fructose intolerant makes that hard.

  7. * Is there something you adore but doubt you will ever knit?
    A. Fair isle sweaters. I just don’t enjoy that much colorwork but I think they are beautiful.

    *I will probably never sky dive. Will you?
    A. Nope. I never will. But Mandy has twice! I never would have thought she would do something like that but she wanted to prove something to herself so she did.

    *I will probably never go to another high school reunion? Will you?
    A. No. I went to one and it was one of the most miserable experiences I have ever had. It was my 10 year reunion. I was eight months pregnant with Alex. I’m sure that didn’t help. And now we live so far away I’m not going to go back there just for that.

    * Is there something you just tried and thought ….no….I don’t want to to knit this?
    A. The fair isle sweaters that I mentioned above.

    * Do you have weird skin triggers?
    A. I don’t think so, although I don’t like pure 100% wool next to my skin. Merino sock blends are fine though.

    * Would you go out on the ice?
    A. Nope. I have anxiety about a lot of things and since I don’t swim, water is a big one.

    * How long does it take you with a book or a podcast?
    A. I could read a book in a day if I put my mind to it. Admittedly, I haven’t been reading much lately. I tend to watch YouTube videos while I knit or crochet.

    * What Won’t you make/cook/bake again soon? I can’t think of anything. Tonight I’m making homemade egg noodles with chicken. Since it’s snowing again it sounds like a good winter supper.

    I enjoyed reading everyone’s answers to these questions Kathy. Thank you.
    Blessings, Betsy

    I would love to knit a dress, but I know I never will.
    *I will probably never sky dive. Will you?
    It looks like so much fun, but I know I’d totally chicken out if I ever tried.
    *I will probably never go to another high school reunion? Will you?
    Facebook has pretty much made that moot for my generation (and younger). We’re all more or less still in touch.
    Is there something you just tried and thought ….no….I don’t want to to knit this?
    There have been LOTS!
    Do you have weird skin triggers?
    I can’t stand collars close around the neck. I can wear a choker-style necklace, but not a high collar, it’s weird.
    Would you go out on the ice?
    Nope. Not worth the risk in my view.
    How long does it take you with a book or a podcast?
    If it doesn’t grab me in the first chapter, I give up.
    What won’t you make/cook/bake again soon?
    Anything made with ground turkey… it just always comes out tasting like farts.

  9. I made my first pineapple upside down cake last weekend at the request of my son and it was delicious. Made with a classic Betty Crocker recipe and subbing pineapple juice from the can of pineapple rings for the water in the cake batter.

  10. Is there something you adore but doubt you will ever knit?

    Gloves. Love the idea, but doubt I would ever knit anything that fiddly.

    *I will probably never sky dive. Will you?

    I can say without reservation —————–HELL NO!

    *I will probably never go to another high school reunion? Will you?

    I went to two of Steve’s with him and seriously? B-O-R-I-N-G! No. I did try to reconnect with some high school friends when we first moved back to PA. My thoughts? WHY did I like these people?????

    Would you go out on the ice? Yes, with reservation. I would NOT go out on something like a huge deep lake, but I would love to skate again on the Neshaminy Creek. We used to go for MILES! (And, it’s not deep enough to cause you any issues if you go through. Sadly, we don’t get a prolonged period of cold where the creek freezes hard enough anymore. Global warming anyone????)

    How long does it take you with a book or a podcast? I make a decision pretty quickly. Within the first few minutes I know if a podcast is to my taste.

    What Won’t you make/cook/bake again soon? Breast of veal . . . it was an expensive disaster.

    *I will probably never sky dive. Will you?
    A. I thought at one time I might want to try it but then my good sense kicked in.

    *I will probably never go to another high school reunion? Will you?
    A. Nope. I went to two.. got drug there by my HS best friend.. I was miserable.

    * Is there something you just tried and thought ….no….I don’t want to to knit this?
    A. Socks. LOL!

    * Do you have weird skin triggers?
    A. I don’t like manmade fabric, only cotton.

    * Would you go out on the ice?
    A. Nope.. I’ve seen too many movies with people falling through it.. what a nightmare.

    * How long does it take you with a book or a podcast?
    A. I usually take about a week to finish a book. I haven’t tried podcasts as I don’t need another time-suck in my life.

    * What Won’t you make/cook/bake again soon?
    A. To be honest I am on a healthy eating regimen and baking is not in the cards.

  12. 1. Entrelac. I love how it looks but it gives me a headache just thinking about it.
    2. No sky diving. I won’t even get in a plane.
    3. No high school reunions. I hated the kids I went to school with.
    4. I hate to crochet. I have tried it. I don’t like it.
    5. My neck. I can wear itchy sweaters with a shirt underneath but scarves do me in.
    6. No. I just the saw the video of Michelle Kwan skating on a frozen lake. It gave me chills.
    7. I can tell by the voice. I prefer British or other foreign podcasts and narrators. Something about American
    voices put me off. Weird, I know.
    8. I won’t ever make a full sized anything anymore. I bought itty bitty cake pans and pie tins. I make little ones that
    you can eat at one sitting. No leftover temptations for me.

  13. I don’t bake or knit, so what’s left:
    I’ll never skydive, attend a high school reunion, or ice fish.
    I listen to audiobooks constantly; with my long commute, I can get through a typical 10 hour book in 3 to 4 days. Haven’t tried any podcasts yet.
