But I digress.
Kathy had some good questions for us this week, and I decided I should play along. :-)
1. Do you prefer: frozen custard; hardpack ice cream; soft serve ice cream; shaved ice; or, shaved desserts?
I would not say no to any of them. However, my very most fave in the summer is a Rita's Water Ice Gelati.
It consists of a layer of water ice, then a layer of frozen custard, then water ice, then frozen custard ...
2. Of all of the colors of the rainbow, which is your favorite?
Indigo. I have accepted the fact that I am ridiculously drawn to blues.
3. How do you keep your sock needles together?
Because I have strong OCD tendencies, they are kept in their original packaging, or in a fabric roll that I have, or held together with rubber bands.
4. If you could run through a shop and pull as much of ONE yarn as you could carry, what would it be?
Hm. Either sock yarn or rustic, tweedy yarns. The colors/shades would matter more than the brand.
5. Are you over shawls?
No, I really like them. It takes me forever to finish them, so I only have a few. Maybe that is why I'm not tired of them.
6. Do your peonies open with or without ants?
I don't have a peony bush, so I guess they don't open at all for me ...
7. Want to share your favorite books as a child?
To be honest, I didn't read many kids' books as a child. My parents didn't buy them, and I just read what was around the house. But one year for Christmas, I did get Black Beauty and Little Women from a family friend, and I loved them (still do!).
8. Is it nothing but boring to you to knit stockinette?
I don't think I would enjoy only ever knitting stockinette, but I don't mind it as one of the choices. I especially appreciate stockinette projects when I want to watch something on TV.
9. Are you more likely to get up early in summer or winter?
There's really no difference to me. I get up early all of the time, and there may be a difference of a half an hour one way or the other, if that.
10. If you are disappointed with the way a yarn is pooling up, do you: a) carry on, b) mix it with a complimentary color, c) overdye it, d) give it away?
I've never given this a lot of thought, so I guess I just carry on! Once I start knitting, I have to really hate the project or the yarn to intervene at all.
And now, I would love to have a Rita's gelati, and wear a shawl while enjoying it ... :-)
