There are no bad answers contest day #6



Just a few days left to the contest. Today's questions for those playing along are:

#15 How do YOU do a SSK?

#16 Do you pack a lunch for work? If so, what do you pack?

#17 If the person at work in the breakroom is eating a tuna fish sandwich, how do you react?

#18 I've injured my fingers making guacamole, (stitches required) and holding a recent big Bass by the lip. Have you injured an important knitting finger, and if so HOW!


I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

#15 How do YOU do a SSK?
slip 1 as if to purl, slip the next as if to purl, then knit both together

#16 Do you pack a lunch for work? If so, what do you pack?
I work at home....the kitchen is my break room. LOL

#17 If the person at work in the breakroom is eating a tuna fish sandwich, how do you react?
We love tuna sandwiches here at the Casa of Chaos and often eat it for lunch. I do have to some times dole out some breathmints afterwards though :)

#18 I've injured my fingers making guacamole, (stitches required) and holding a recent big Bass by the lip. Have you injured an important knitting finger, and if so HOW!
OUCH!!!!!!! Using very sharp knitting needles, I have poked a hole in my right index finger pad while pushing the needle away while trying to slide stitches to the point of the left needle.

15 How do YOU do a SSK? I knit the stitches together through the back loop (am not a continental knitter)

#16 Do you pack a lunch for work? If so, what do you pack?
No. I am a stay at home mom... so I eat at home.

#17 If the person at work in the breakroom is eating a tuna fish sandwich, how do you react?

YUM! And I'll make sure to get me one also

#18 I've injured my fingers making guacamole, (stitches required) and holding a recent big Bass by the lip. Have you injured an important knitting finger, and if so HOW!

Yes. I slit the top of my index finger while cleaning a meat slicing machine, now 9 years ago. Painful. Couldn't knit for a month

15: I slip as if to knit unless told in the instructions to do otherwise. Is there a right/wrong way?

16: I have salad or soup for lunch, and pack or buy is about 50/50.

17: If there is a tuna sandwich around I'll arm wrestle someone for it!

18: I used to slice fingers while chopping a lot until I got the new handy-dandy food processor.

I love this question-along thing! It's fun to read all the answers.

I slip the first stitch knit-wise, the second stitch purl-wise, and then knit them together through the back loop. Don't remember where I learned that tip.

Eat at home, usually a big salad w/ chicken and cheese on top and a piece of fruit.

Yum, love tuna. I'd probably react be craving tuna and bringing it the next day.

Nnnnooooo, never hurt a knitting finger. You poor dear. Buy your guacamole from now on, and heal up soon!!!
