1. Yarn in the mail? Oh look, it's enough Malabrigo to make a heavy winter sweater!
2. Cabana boy, would you please bring me a tall, cold glass of sweet tea. Why yes, that is the same thing I ordered last week, and the week before.
3. Sweet knitter, will you please finish my doubled blanket? I am so bored with it but I can't quit because I have too much yarn invested in it! What? You're going to frog it for me? Hmmmmm....
4. My summer nails are short and oval (as opposed to squared), unpolished but with clear laquer.
Happy summer Kathy!!

Yummy hand-dyed sock yarn – any color will do…it will be a surprise.

*You are knitting poolside.
What are you ordering from the cabana boy?
It has been soooooooooo hot, I think a frozen margarita…or a mojito.

*You are asked to give a 5 minute presentation about any aspect of knitting at all. What is your topic?
The frustrations of setting up my swift and ball winder…only one table in the house where they fit and it always takes me several tries to get the yarn threading properly onto the winder.

*You can ask for a knitter to finish any of your WIP
Which one is it ?
One of the sweaters I’ve been ignoring.

*You take good care of your hands.
Are you nails short or long?
Short and unpolished

Here’s hoping for more moderate temps soon!!

I’d like some angora please!

*
Oh Cabana boy, make mine a Mimosa!

*
Lace – it’s not as hard as you think.

*
I’d like someone to finish my maple leaf shawl… I just can’t find the gumption to pick it back up.
*
I’m a nail biter, so short an unpolished for me. The only time they are done is if I have an event to go to and I go get acrylics put on.

1. My stash enhancement would be smooshy in fingering weight and have some pops of speckled neon.
2. Young man, bring me that mojito pls.
3. Knitting is my yoga.
4. Pls finish my dishcloth.
5. Ever since I took piano lessons in high school, short finger nails are a must; long ones bug me. Since we bought a house, I've been doing my own nails to save money. I used to get a pedicure every 2-3 weeks. I don't paint my fingernails b/c the polish never stays on.

1. Indie dyed sock yarn in lovely brilliant stripes!
2. I second the mojito.
3. Magic Loop Socks for beginners
4. My White Pine Cardi. It's year three for it. All I need to do is the front band nonsense.
5. Short, unpolished because of guitar practice. I just took off my toe polish too and it was an ordeal. What do they make that stuff out of these days that it WON'T come off.
Happy Monday! I hope you enjoyed your weekend.

Thank you Kathy for the sweet comments. I'm lucky to have two fabulous parents who have always watched out for me my whole life. I like how Uncle Tank is mean muggin' the camera. He's tough.

1. Yarn in the mail? Just a couple skeins of gray cashmere for a shawl.
2. I'll have a dirt martini on the rocks with some extra stuffed olives on the side.
3. No projects to finish, so join me in a drink. Just tell the cabana boy your preference.
4. My nails are always short and unpolished.
