We haven't done a Q & A in awhile,
so let's jump right into it.
1. When was the last time you went to a yarn store that was new to you?
In January, Vera and I met at a Purls of Wisdom in Phoenixville. It is a beautiful shop and we both came home with some new treasures.
Vera and I ALWAYS have a good time when we get together, but meeting at a yarn shop makes the get-together just a little bit MORE special.
Other than that ..... it would be in October/November. When we visited and then when we moved back here, I had a lot (12) of new yarn stores to explore.
2. Is there a show you can watch over and over?
Not really. I watch mostly the evening news, Jeopardy and sports programming. They don't lend themselves to repeat watching.
3. Do you have a cure for canker sores?
No. I sure wish I did. The best I can do is try to make them a little less painful while they exist. I was hesitant to buy Abreva. It's a bit spendy when you don't know whether it really helps. But, Kim gave it her recommendation. I may have to give it a try next time.
4. When was the last time you forced yourself to get out and walk/run etc... when you really didn't want to.
This morning. I really didn't want to go to the gym. I pulled up my big girl panties and went anyway.
5. If you could sit on the sofa today and knit with anyone, who would it be?
Well, proximity says Vera and Bridget. They live close enough to me that we really CAN get together. But, think about it . . . what if we could get all us bloggers together in one place for a knit day. How fantastic would THAT be?!
6. If you could have one plant/flower/tree flourish this spring/summer, which one would it be.
We moved into this townhouse after the growing season. So, I'm not quite sure what plants we actually have. There is a hydrangea downstairs in the back, but I'm not sure it made it through the winter. I sure would like if it came back and flourished.
7. When was the last time you wore sandals?
Back in Jacksonville, in a raging downpour. By all that is holy, I will NEVER wear a pair of flip flops. I dang near broke my neck --- Public service announcement ....the sole of Clark's flip flops get major-league slippery when wet. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RUN IN THEM!
In other news ....
I have a finish . . . a big finish.
No, I take that back. A HUGE finish.
It's a finish a year in the making.
My Coziest Memory Blanket (a.k.a. Giroux's big blankie) is finished.
I started this in late February or early March of 2017
I know y'all are suprised that Giroux is not laying on it.
He is currently sleeping off a tuna-juice torpor up on the big bed.
While it was laying out drying from it's spa treatment,
he was rolling all over it and sniffing all his favorite squares.
Is it perfect? No, far from it. There were a few squares that felted when it was washed. They pull the squares around them kind of wonky. The crochet edging rolls a little bit in the corners.
I don't care.
It is warm and snuggly.
It is just the right size for a sofa blanket.
Best of all . . . it is finished.
I ♥ it!
