Kathy asks questions every Monday. This week I decided to answer.
* What kind of crops do you see in your state? Corn and soybeans, soybeans and corn.
*This has been a question before, but it is a good one: When was the last time you wore a handknit? I wore a pair of handknit socks about a week ago. If you asked me this question anytime between September and May, the answer would be ‘right now’ because I wear handknit socks every day except in summer.
*Have you ever seen the Secret Service in person? No, but Younger Son encountered them at the Republican National Convention in St Paul in 2008.
*Do you know a poem by heart? Not an entire poem, but I can still recite the first dozen or so lines of the Canterbury Tales… in the original Middle English. ‘Whan that Aprille with his shoures soote…’
*What is a rule in your house? Never awaken the Kat™ for anything less than the house being on fire.
*Do you attach a new ball of yarn to your knits at the end of a row or a few inches in? Wherever the old ball runs out, so almost always an inch or more in.
*Have you been stuck behind a cyclist, a tractor or a bus most recently? Tractor. Always a tractor. This is rural America, folks.
*What’s your favorite summer pie? Blueberry. Always blueberry.
*Do you know a clever yarn shop name? Yes. Oh, you wanted to KNOW the name? Darn Knit Anyway in Stillwater, MN.
*Are you still hearing fireworks? Nope, thank FSM.
