Today's Meme is inspired by Taiga Hilliard Designs in Super Bulky yarns.
This is the Flame Out shawl.
I fell for the Fire Garnet lace shawl this weekend. I knit it up in twice the time it was supposed to take. It is a great pattern ;I just had to wrap my head around the simple lace chart and then I was good to go.
Tiaga's Bulky patterns inspired this meme.
Here we go:
*1 What is the bulkiest yarn with which you have knitted or crocheted?
(This is kind of cheating. I doubled some Worsted Malabrigo to make the Fire Garnet shawl this weekend.
I just ordered a Super Bulky skein of Madelinetosh ASAP and I intend to WORK it asap )
*2 What is the biggest size needle you've worked?
(I worked the Fire Garnet on 15s)
Tell me about the WHOLE Enchilada...
(My enchiladas need to be chicken with a mole sauce!)
Would you rather wear a bulky bracelet,
bulky earrings or a bulky ring?
(I love bulky earrings)
Name something oversized that you own and love?
(. Fezzik is an oversized Cat. His massiveness is impressive and beautiful )
Which is bigger, The number of Projects on your Ravelry project pages or the number of patterns you have faved?
(This is easy. I have at least 200 patterns in my favorites.
Projects listed on Ravelry for me are less than 80. )
What is the biggest vegetable you have grown?
(One of those monstrous zucchini that you try to give to neighbors.)
How large is your stash?
a) reasonable, I have some new skeins and lots of leftovers
b) Not fair I just came from the Sheep and Wool Festival
c) Lets just say we may have a knitting problem .
(I'm actually an A. I have under a dozen fresh skeins and the rest is leftover in the stash)
What's the longest vacation you have ever taken?
(We went on a road trip with the kids for 12 days)
What is longest you have gone without talking to another human being?
(I was forced to do an overnight 24 hour SOLO in the Boundary Waters when I was 16. I was scared to death camping alone and I only lasted until Sun up. I started yelling for the group counselor to come and get me. They thought a bear had me.
Boy were they upset with me)
