Friday Fun Time

This is totally me. Scary how accurate it is.

What kind of knitting needles are you?

You are interchangeable.Fun, free, and into everything, you've got every eventuality covered and every opportunity just has to be taken. Every fiber is wonderful, and every day is a new beginning. You are good at so many things, it's amazing, but you can easily lose your place and forget to show up. They have row counters for people like you!

So anyway, what have I been doing? Inventory. First, I had to scoot over a very chubby cat.

Then, I did the personal use yarn. This is stuff for gifts and family. We're going to need a better than $20 camera.

Here is yarn marked for 'production'. Things to make that I'd eventually want to sell. These are marketed to people who love hand knits but don't have the time or patience for it.

Finally, after seeing Wendy's sock stash, I had to flash my own. Some of this will be used in my Socks Made Simple class. Some of it is marked for Jaywalkers, while others have been claimed by family members. All of it has not been put into the computer just yet. Bleh. Computer entry isn't difficult, Hubby made me the best computer program to do it with. It's very time consuming, though.

Girl, you gotta lotta yarn! Almost as much as what's in my car!

You do have a nice stash - get it inventoried so you'll remember what you have and won't have to trip over it all the time.

I am afraid to take a picture of my stash. It makes it to real.

I am this kind of knitting needle...

You are pink aluminum.
Retro, straightforward and fun, you love classic things. If they're 99 cents at Goodwill all the better! You are moved by striking colors and tasty morsels, and you like a stitch-n-bitch session in the sun. Just remember, while you're being kitschy cool, don't get too cold. Ice cubes are best kept in your cocktails, baby!

Your cat is VERY furry....have you ever thought about spinning its hair into yarn? Is this a gross idea? My mom thinks it is. Her two cats have the most lovely long fur. I was given a spinning wheel and thought of trying to spin the cats hair. I was being all sneeky, having my dad brush them and put the hair in a shoebox. Alas, my mom found the hairbox, confronted my dad about the "weirdness in the box". He in turn, confessed under pressure. She calls to tell me under no circumstance am I allowed to knit a lace scarf out of her discarded cat hair. She threw out the box, even after I promised I wouldn't give it to her...I just wanted to spin it. What is wrong with mothers of today (not me or you, though)?

Susan said...

Oh now that's some yarn stash! I wonder if I show the pics to mine, will it be inspired to grow??

I love your cat pic. I have one that does that. Especially if I need her to move. She just turns into a belly up pile of mush, impossible to move :-)

Chelle and Maenwyn, I do have a bit of yarn, don't I? Just wait until the next post. In that, I reveal all. (wondering how Chelle knew I tripped over it...)

Camie, spinning pet fur is one thing I'm not going to do. Wet dog. Ick. Not that Claude smells bad, he doesn't, but still. Human hair is the same. High on my ewww factor. Very illogical, since what is wool, alpaca, and angora but hair? Moms are nut, though. My Gran threw out a box of sweet little baby mice my Aunt, Mom, and Uncle collected for pets.

Susan, if a cat can gain five pounds when you try to move them, do they ever get lighter? Wouldn't it be nice to change weight at will?

Carol, isn't that a fun quiz? Did it fit you like it fit me?

Laura - I have ultrasonic vision (and besides, knowing how I trip over mine . . . ah, yeah).
