(My Denver Bronco fingerless for my sister, half done. I have the other to knit today.....)
Okay, Here's MY Monday Meme Number 7. Enjoy it! Feel Free to play along if you wish.
#1 Write on the pattern you are using or keep it clean as a whistle?
(I write all over them. If I use it more than once I use a different color ink)
#2 Trick for Keeping track of a plain round or a complicated round?
(I use a photo or a piece of paper that is plain on one side and not on the other. When I'm doing a plain row I flip it to the plain side, when I'm knitting a busy row I flip it to the photo side. Yes I do forget what I'm doing that easily!)
#3 You've decided you cannot stand the yarn you are working with......
you : Carry on. You liked it enough to buy it after all
or Put it in the donation pile, feeling a bit guilty that someone is getting yarn you don't even like. Or return it.
(I'm quick to dump it in the WHY in the World pile. I cannot stand to waste yarn, so it may morph into a pompom someday. There's a certain joy in cutting up bad yarn.....)
#4 What is your current favorite television show to knit during?
(This is a silly question. I'll knit to anything. What I most love to watch, however, for today, is the WESTMINSTER DOG SHOW! I know, I don't even have a dog....but I just love that show. I know it is as political as any other big contest. Why else do all those funny looking poodles win?)
#5 How do you like your coffee?
(I need flavored creamer of any kind in mine. I need sugar too. )
#6 How many pairs of hand knitted socks do you rotate wearing currently?
(I currently have 10 pairs of socks for just me. C'mon it is very cold in Chicago right now. This is SOCK season!)
#7 You are taking a road trip. Do you listen to the local radio stations on the way or your own music?
(Both. We once heard a rodeo being broadcasted on Wyoming's radio station....(shout out to Nancy). It was fascinating to listen to the call, but not as fun as watching on TV)
#8 Do you bring your own grocery bags to the store?
(I almost always forget the ones sitting right in my car for that very purpose)
#9 What wildlife have you seen that is considered rare?
(I saw Fisher cat in Door County. I've seen black bears but they aren't rare. They certainly are exciting....)
#10 Someone just gave your family plane tickets to anywhere in the US for next week. Where will you take them ?
(Yellowstone in the winter would be at the top of my list or San Fransisco if Ellen could play with us while we were there!) Never been to either place.
Happy Monday bloggy pals.
