Monday Q and A!~

Latest felted stocking. Knit picks wool of the andes by far and away the best yarn for felting these stockings. 


Happy Happy August. Monday. Summer. Day. 

*Do you have a mosquito bite? 

*Have you been to a garage or rummage sale this summer?

*Have you purchased a knit pattern this summer?

*Have you seen someone else knitting in public this summer? 

*Have you knitted with cotton this summer? 

*Have you used Ravelry's road trip planner this summer?

*Have you wished Katherine a Happy Birthday Yet? 

1. Yes on my foot.  
No signs of west nile virus yet. 
Then again I don't know the signs. 
I imagine them though: Fever, yarn delerium, the like. 

2. Yes.  I've been to garage sales and rummage sales. 
Looking for fun art for the new house.

3. Nope. Haven't purchased a pattern yet this summer. 

4.Yes.  Early on I think I saw someone in a doctor's office knitting in the waiting room.  Nothing recently though...

5. No.  I have not touched cotton yarn this summer. 

6. Yes. I love Ravelry's road trip planner. I use it to find yarny shops that happen to appear when I am at the wheel and fireman is taking a break from driving.  Odd....isn't it

7. Yes. ON FB. But I'll wish dear Katherine a Happy Birthday today again.  I wish we'd meet.  She can do a flip turn.
She inspired me to cut off my hair!!

YOU?

1. Mosquito bites? Covered. I talk all about it in tomorrow's post.
2. No. Never go to them. I have too much stuff to adopt other people's junk.
3. No but I've been close. All that handspun from the TdF has to be something someday.
4. Yes. There is a mom at the rink. I've never talked to her because I am on the ice in a lesson and she is gone when I am done. It's a big pink something she is making.
5. No. No road trips in my future. No kitty sitters.
6. HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATHERINE!

1. No mosquito bite *knocks on wood*. I learned when you get one, the protein the mosquito injects into you stops bloodflow which makes the bite itchy. We try the suggested method of running a hot spoon over the bite to help release the proteins.
2. I haven't shopped at a garage sale. I am so curious and my girls want to and want to go the flea market to try to find old LPS toy sets.
3. You bet; I purchased Lacy Loo, Smooth Operator Socks, and Wayfarer Hat.
4. No; I don't see knitters around.
5. Yes, but I didn't knit with the cotton this summer; I crocheted with it for the Summer Spa Swap, #2.
6. No; I didn't know of the Ravelry Road Trip Planner.
7. Hau'oli la hanau, Katherine. May your day be full of sunshine and rainbows.

I'm a day late because of no internet yesterday but hope I can still play! :-)

No mosquito bites. Mosquitos are pretty rare up here.
No garage sales. I have enough "stuff".
Yes. The Random Act of Color" shawl. I usually use free patterns off Ravelry but fell in love with the story behind this shawl and that the proceeds were going to charity.
Note this summer, but I knit everywhere I go.
Yes. 10 dishcloths this week.
Nope.
I don't know who Katherine is, but Happy Birthday Katherine!

LOVE the latest stocking!!! We even have mosquitoes here this summer, or at least something in our yard is biting us. Isn't your birthday coming right up soon?

The Well Fed Wheel said...

Correction! I have knitted with cotton this summer. I knit cotton dish cloths all the time!! Summer, winter, fall....I'm constantly knitting them for everyone and anyone.

Katherine said...

Thanks to all for the birthday wishes! It was a great one. Several readers said they don't know who Katherine is so I invite you to visit The Comfort Zone. Sorry for the shameless advertising in your comments Kathy. Heehee!
