LOL! I'm going with b,c,b,c,b,c. And I'm going with the picture of Pie as my favorite. does she do it?? I also like the wedding cake topper collection.

You are a hoot. That made me laugh!

I am hoping my swap package is at home when I get there. I'm also hoping that a box of books will be, and maybe my Land's End purchases that it's too hot to wear right now...

So, can Pie still walk, or is her leg permanently stuck there? Fun cake toppers!

I never did do well with a Pop Quiz -- so I'll just pass on this one.

Too many projects on the needles to begin another. Therefore, I made a deal with myself to finish current projects so I can cast on with my swap yarn. I may even throw caution to the wind and cast on anyway. After all, it's not possible to make a binding contract with yourself anyway. Right?

On the subject of cables: losing a needle (ummm, misplacing a needle) is precisely why I do NOT like to knit cables.

I'm sorry. I'm not drinking from a water container that can't be cleaned. That just seems so yucky.

I'm thinking from the style that you wheedled that cake topper from a relative. ;-)

I Can't believe Pie!!
1-C Or the dog will find it and chew it.
2-A But B is interesting.
3-C Super flexible cat.
4-A,B & C But they are worth it.
5-C I'll bet he comes back.
Finally-No problem, don't buy them!

Fun post!!

I'm never very good with tests. I keep second-guessing myself, "A. No, B. No, C..."

I use a spare DPN if I lose my cable needles. Wow! That cat is flexible.

Ha ha ha ha ha ......
I am going with "all of the above" even though it's not listed.

PS: I always use a 6" double pointed needle for cabling. I hate cable needles. I stick it behind my ear when not being used that way I don't drop it but I do find myself wearing it out in public from time to time.

Wow, I like those cake toppers, are they vintage??

I am ready to swap! I will let the appropriate parties know, that things are progressing.

And I have been known to use any pencil, bic pen, laying around if I can't find a spare cable needle or dpn when necessary.

d) use the needless cable method I just learned
a, b, all of the above, c

LOL! Have a good day, Kathy. blessings ~ tanna
