Yarrrrn!

Come on people I need more questions!

My husband is awesome. He got me exactly what I wanted me for my birthday.

I am on a lace weight kick. This is a lovely wool silk blend from Knit Picks called Gloss Lace in the Aegean color. Just look at it shimmer! I am planning on making it into a lacy scarf.


I got three skeins of this amazing alpaca lace weight also from Knit Picks. It is the stream color. I love how amazingly soft this is. I think that I am going to keep it to pet for awhile. Eventually I want to make a shawl out of it, but have not found the perfect pattern for it (suggestions are welcome, just remember I am still new to lace). Why a shawl? I don't know. I have been seeing other knitters make them and they look like they are fun to do.

My really great husband also got me a chart keeper so that I am a lot less likely to get lost when I am knitting a complex pattern. I love that this has snaps which will help keep little hands from moving my markers and the magnets make it easier to quickly put it away. Isn't my husband great? I have no idea how he knew exactly what to get me.

What was the worst or strangest meal you ever cooked?---be honest!
As a newlywed I carefully prepared a goulash recipe. My husband ate it but asked why I had mixed canned peaches in with macaroni, hamburger and tomatoes? Because the magazine photo looked so good??!! Needless to say, that recipe hit the gabage can.

I would ask something but my mind went blank and I started drool when I saw the yarn!

How many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop?

Oh, also, What would you do with a Klondike bar?
