An interview with AL
My yard yesterday afternoon....in the snow
This is the Lorna's Laces I'd like to pick up next.....
and Now and interview with AL:
*When you hated high school and I told you to bring your knitting with you, what was the reaction of your classmates?
"Probably they thought I was weird." "I don't remember."
However Al has a friend who got engaged to one of her teachers and he remembered that she knit in his class.....
**What is the worst thing you ever knit?"
"That time that I tried to make a baby sweater out of 15 skeins of Koigu and it looked like vomit. It was a Lucinda pattern. I ripped it all out and made a ruffle shawl instead and that looks much better."
***Tell us about your stash::
"I've been trying to reduce my stash which isn't really working. I did use the yarn from the Man sweater for Dad to make a gift scarf and hat for a friend."
****Do you still want to be a Master knitter?
"Maybe. I"m kind of a lazy knitter right now. OMG Paula Deen's mac and cheese has 821 calories per serving and 94 percent of your daily cholesterol ...what should I make in my slow cooker tonight? I think Crock Pot Italian Chicken...." (Al is digressing)
*****What is your favorite kind of yarn?
******When you pick a pattern what do you look for?
"Ummmmm, charts probably. I like charts." (whose child is this?) I like minimal writing and more charts.
"You can write on there that my favorite thing to watch on the Food Channel is 5 Ingredients Fix because Claire is a hottie and everything looks amazing. People better start watching it ...it is on Sundays. IT is way better than Pioneer Woman...sorry Pioneer Woman."
******BACK TO KNITTING:
How often does a patient or their family knit in the ER?
"OH SOMETIMES. Maybe once a week. SOmeone crocheted Terri a hat in one sitting last week. IT was bulky. She was very touched because people in the ER rarely get anything from patients."
********Do you use stitch markers?
"I am obsessed with stitch markers. THey are beautiful and useful. I Do them with every pattern repeat even small ones." (I have some stitch markers to give her now!)
*********IF you owned a yarn shop what would it be named?
"First of all it looks like running a yarn shop is not much fun. Working there was fun though. Okay, it would named: MOTHER OF PURL.
***************What time of day are you most likely to knit?
"Nightime when watching TV"
**********What is on your needles currently?
"The Madigan Cowl Neck Pullover...
swatching for a Lace Shrug from Quince and Company
Cup Cozy for my roommate , for her Coke
**********What blogs do you read?
Irisheyes of course
"I spend too much time on Pinterest"
**************Do you knit in movie theaters?
"Yes, I can probably knit my boring cowl neck watching the Artist...."
Thank you Al for your candid remarks. Keep knitting!
