An easy knock-off post.

Compassionknit’s ten questions:

*Have you had a hostess cupcake knock off? There are knock offs?

*Have you heard of rolled ice cream?  (Thai origin?) Nope. I live in the hinterlands. The nearest Thai food of any type is a good 50 miles away.

*Do you have a favorite Episode of a favorite Tv show? Well, there was the turkeys-thrown-from-a-helicopter episode of WKRP in Cincinnatti back in the day.

*Do you have a hammock? Nope, but we had one when I was a kid.

*Have you knit outside lately? ::sob::

*What is your go to Dk or aran  weight yarn? Don’t have one, really, although Berocco Vintage DK is quickly becoming my bitch.

*What’s your noisiest appliance? The damned dishwasher. It’s the third [nearly identical] KitchenAid that we have had. I bought the first one 15 years ago because Consumer Reports said it was q-u-i-e-t. And it was. When it died we bought another one, used. It too was quiet. But the third one, also used, can be heard all over the house. Grrr. I blame it on the incomplete installation — I can tip it out of its base cabinet space a good 10˚. And then there is the fan over the stove. When it is on I have to turn the TV up annoyingly loud just to make out the dialogue. ::first world problems::

*Is it easier for you to give yourself some slack or someone else? I tend to give everyone a fair amount of slack, including myself.

*How many circular needles do you own? Too many to count; I have four — 4! — sets of interchangeables, plus a complete assortment of US#0 to US#8 circs with multiple duplicates. I use circs exclusively.

*Name of sign of Spring you are happy to see! ::sob:: (see photo, above)

    The spring is a lie.
    Also, do you follow no planting out till the first full moon in June? It’s the 28th this year. I cry bitter, bitter tears.

    I swear, as God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly…
    (my all-time favorite, too!)
    And in Vermont, we used the first full moon in June, too. Always always always had a killer frost the night of that full moon.

  4. Im so sorry. Snow is getting really depressing. I’m pretending it is gone. IT will be soon. Berroco VIntage Dk is great stuff. Have to agree

    So sorry. I’ve been loving my spring weather here in California. It will be my turn to sob this summer when we haven’t had enough rainfall for the year, though. 😦
