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?)

#106 She-Knits is definitely NOT feeling it.

Where's my husband, oh, he is not downstairs in his office, he is out of the country....and that is long as it is temporary.

Where's my mojo......I want it back. I guess that is what two rejections in one week will do to a designer gal. Listen to hear the yucky details.

Are you listening to any audio books you are loving? PLEASE let me know, I cant even find a book I like as of late.

Are you loving what you are knitting?

She-Knits Mystery 7, Cynthia is going well! I hope you are part of the fun!

#105 She-Knits asks what's new?

What are you knitting right now? Take a look at it...what drew you to it?
Was it the shape was more modern?
Was it just that the yarn had this pattern with it?
Did you like the particular stitch pattern?
Is it because its a sock...and if its a new sock you are definitely going to knit it.
Really think about it...what drew you to it. I would love to hear
Have you signed up for She-Knits Mystery #7, Cynthia?
Were you 'blizzarded"?
Stay safe and warm~~
