Ann Norlings twisted rib hat in celery. Easy peasy and fun. I am an Ann fan are you? I love the way she gives lots of instructions for all differnt sizes. Real bang for your buck. I'm going to have to find more patterns like this. Does anyone else write patterns this way that you know of?

Kathy b: What is something i have knitted, that you recall as good?
Fireman: I dont know. (long pause) Probably your cranberrish sweater.

Interview interrupted as Fireman reads aloud blood doping article he is reading re: cyclist.
Kathy B: Do you think knitters have an expensive hobby?
Fireman: No more than any other.

Kathy B: Have I ever embarassed you, knitting in public.
Fireman: Nah. Just used to it.
Kathy B: Have you ever had a patient who's knitting was all over their home?

Now, do you mind my wanting to stop at knit shops whereever we go?
Fireman: No! As long as it is next to a bike shop.
Kathy B: Do you understand the importance of a swatch?
Fieman: To make sure your measurements are correct right? It is like a practice thing? Right?
Kathy B: Do you read Irisheyes?
Fireman: Yeah. But I cant get on it at work anymore. It comes up blocked.
Kathy B; Have you ever left a comment?
Fireman: ........mmm No. Or have I ? I don't think I have.
Kathy B: Do you the house would be cleaner if I didnt knit?
Fireman: Would you stop it. (Keeps cleaning stovetop and putting dishes away)
Kathy B: Thank you for this insightful interview. Would you like to add anything in closure?
Answer is not appropriate for Jill who reads the blog . Fireman is "Still a guy" as Brad Paisely says.
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
