Here are answers to some more probing questions from the SP11 hostesses:
My Visa card. ;^)
2. If you're heading on vacation, do you take knitting with you? If so, how much and what type of project?
Yes, I take knitting on car trips (using dramamine makes this possible) and most other trips as well, unless it might offend a host or something. It does, sometimes. Go figure.
Here's a contender: Horsetail Falls, near Lake Tahoe. This picture is looking away from the falls. Did you kno-tice I was knitting?
4. What is your favorite knitting book at the moment? Do you own it?
I don't have a favorite but I love reading anything in Mason-Dixon Knitting, since the writing is so good, and the authors' voices come through and make them real people.
5. Do you listen to podcasts? Which is your favorite(s)?
Haven't done this yet--I'm still a bit of a tech neophyte. I am hearing more about them so I think I will figure it out--KnitPicks has one, and I know there are many others out there.
Gray. So many shades! Just like life!
I have a great answer (I think!) to this problem and have done it once before. I unraveled the cast on edge and tinked back from the beginning, fixed the mistake, knitted back the first rows and cast off at what was the original cast-on edge.
I wish I could say something truly hilarious like the gynecologist's table or something but really . . . nothing comes to mind.
But Much More Important, and Newsworthy . . .
Here is a picture of Angelina, the Angel Baby, in the sweater I made her. Her mama has been really sweet about the present and also HELPFUL about the ways the sweater wasn't sized quite right. For next time, I know I can make a better-fitting kimono! Meantime, I am still pretty proud of it!! And Pat should be proud of what she made!!! Ain't she sweet!
