Hodgepodge Wednesday

1. National Read a Road Map Day falls on April 5th. Would people say you have a good sense of direction? Do you rely on a GPS when you drive somewhere new? When was the last time you used a map? I have a pretty good sense of direction. I own a GPS and love it, but still carry a map with me when I travel. My husband collects maps, so we have oodles. We do all our trip planning on one old map that has a lot of highlights from different trips on it. It is like our scrap book of trips we have taken.

2. What's your favorite cookbook?

That is like asking me which child I like more!

I have a cook book that my mom wrote all of her favoite recipes in. I also have a very old Betty Crocker Red & White cook book. If there was a fire and I could could only grab two, those are the ones I would grab.

3. What painting would you like to "walk into" and experience? Why?

I actually have two:

This one because it just looks like a place where I would love to live. And this one because she looks like someone I would love to have a conversation with.

4. What annoys you more- misspellings or mispronunciations?

Mispronounciations both me more, as I am not that great at spelling.

5. What is something your mother or father considered important?

An education. One of the reasons I am going to college now is because of a promise I made my dad a long time ago.

6. Do you like or dislike schedules?

I am a planner. I like schedules most of the time. If I am on vacation though, I like to be left to my whims and not have anything planned.

7. Let's have some fun with National Poetry Month (that would be April)...write your own ending to this poem-

"Roses are Red

Violets are blue..."

I'm counting my stitches,

Knit one, Purl two.

Incidentally if you'd like to read the history behind that little ditty you'll find it here.

8. Insert your own random thought in this space.

I love knitting with my hand spun yarn! This week I made a wine bottle cozy Whine Cozy and a Sock project bag 100_1184 There is just something magical about taking fluffy fiber and turning it into yarn then making something functional from it.

I knit and crochet also, but spinning fiber into yarn? This is serious! Your creations are lovely.
