BUT - before we get to that, I wanted to share a couple of links.
I know this is lambswool, and I know it is handknit. I'm also sure it's probably worth every penny (pound, rather), but I would like to know WHO can afford it??? But I see this, and tell myself I REALLY need to get moving on making one with yarn from my stash, as I love these kinds of blankets. Maybe 2017 will be the year ...
And then, for your Christmastime pleasure, here are a few cute ornaments to knit, courtesy of Kate, and they are freebies, so it's a win-win!
OK, on to the business at hand ...
1. Have you ever knit a Christmas ornament?
Yes. I made this a few years back, and want to make more!
And, a few years ago, I knit an Advent Calendar garland, which is a Christmas decoration, if not technically an ornament.
2. Have you ever knit with sparkle yarn?
Not so far, though I have two skeins of sock yarn with stellina in them, so somewhat sparkly knitting is in my future.
3. Did you buy yarn while travelling this year?
Yes! I bought a skein in Mystic Seaport, CT during our New England vacation, and a skein in two different places on two different trips to Baltimore.
4. When's the last time you wore something you knit?
Today. I wore my Silk Kerchief, which is one of my fave accessories when it's cold.
5. Do you remember your dreams?
Sometimes. Usually when they are extremely weird or disturbing.
6. What's the one thing you don't want to run out of?
Spiritually, Christmas cheer. Practically, tea.
7. Deep dish or thin pizza?
Thin-ish. Not real paper thin. The Tim makes a perfect crust. If you are in Chicago though, real deep-dish pizza is mighty tasty.
8. Name a favorite holiday Christmas CD, or album for us oldies.
Kathy herself already mentioned the James Taylor one, so I have two that I'll mention: Just in Time for Christmas, by Nancy LaMott,
and, Christmas with the Cambridge Singers.
9. How do you remind yourself a candle has been lit?
Whenever I have a candle lit, I'm right there. If I leave the room, I automatically blow it out and make sure it's out. Having lived through two house fires, I'm very conscious of it.
10. What's the ring tone on your phone?
I don't have a cell phone, so it's whatever came with the phone we have ...
OK, that's it for today - have a good one!
P.S. to any commenters: Blogger seems to have stopped sending me e-mails of comments, so I can respond. I don't know how or why this happened, but I promise I'm not ignoring you! Hopefully it can be resolved soon. (Is anyone else having this problem, by the way?)
