She-Knits #116 April 2012

Well, I missed writing any notes on last months podcast. But- here I am with April's!

She-Knits Mystery #11 Lovely Rita begins April 18th

Simple pattern that is well selling Piper's Journey

Read or rather listened to "The Rest of Her Life" by Laura Moriarty, I liked it - I checked it out on the internet from my library...the greatest thing ever!!

Am currently listening to We need to Talk about Kevin by Lionel Rosenblat - not sure I like it yet

Ok, so I asked, have you ever gone to your knitting guild or a Fiber Festival and heard asomeone speak? Particularly a designer? Who...or is it whom did you hear speak and why did you like the talk...orn ot. Maybe it would be best to only answer positively in here and if you want to tell me about a talk you didn't like private message me in Ravelry ..I'm sheknits.

The newsletter will go out in the next few days announcing the early bird special for She-Knits Mystery #11, Maya - a lace and slip stitch small shawl...more like awesome scarf with cool beading.

1. Do you like to knit designs for small shawls that are more complicated and require good attention, or do you like ones that are less complicated and interesting in shape or color blocking?
2. Do you have a bicycle -- in particular a hybrid, that you love? What is it??
3. What would you do if the situation I described, regarding a friend of one of your child claimed child abuse?

#112 She-Knits talks about jags.

jag 2 (jg)
1. Slang
a. A bout of drinking or drug use.
b. A period of overindulgence in an activity; a spree: a shopping jag; a crying jag. See Synonyms at binge.
2. A small load or portion.

I am talking about b.
I think I live a life full of jags however I am not sure I would call them OVER indulgent as that is a negative connotation. I believe in jags as a way of life!

#109 She-Knits adjusts.

Do you have a young adult child living farrrrr away from you? Did it take you a while to you ever adjust?

Do you take knitting classes at your LYS? If so , what inspires you to take a it a project based class or a technique class...or is it an ongoing weekly skill building class? What have been your positive class experiences, or what has been a bad experience and what would have made it better?

The Royal wedding cost $15,000,000...the Presidential Inaguration was $117,000,000. Is it me or is that ridunkculous?

Next to Normal
is the fantastic musical I recently attended.

Barbara Taylor Bradford's book, Playing the Game narrated by the fabulous Catherine Harvey (have you ever heard her?)
