2. Which knitting "celebrity" would you most like to meet in person?

3. What knitting book would you like to add to your personal library next?

Question:

1- Learning how to make one (whooo boy that was tough figuring it out lefthanded)

2- I don't think I am to the point of having a knitting celebrity I admire.

3- A book in progress by a left handed knitter I would like when she publishes

4- same answer as question 2

5- Homemade rotisserie spiced cornish game hens, garlic cheddar mashed potatoes, frozen corn and homemade buttermilk dinner rolls (ok, I will fess up, I am over 50, don't work and have no kids at home so I have lots of time to knit and cook, ok? :roflhard: )

1. What new knitting skill or trick have you learned lately?
um, since June - Fair Isle, Entrelac and now beaded lace... i'm terribly ambitious at the moment!

4. If you could visit any LYS in the world, which one would it be?
I don't know of any real stores i'd be dying to visit, but i have a fantasy store in my mind - somewhere up in Yorkshire or maybe Scotland, with a lovely coal fire and wonderful ladies sitting about chatting, drinking tea and knitting. I'd also love to go visit the Handmaiden epicenter to watch her dye those gorgeous skeins.

5. What are you making for dinner tonight?
I'm not - my sister is cooking.. something with veggies and italian sausage... Mmmmm!!! :)

Thanks MrsDesertRain! I ended up making butternut squash soup last because of you, but before I read your recipe. Left out carrots and celery but did garlic, curry, lots of ginger and chicken broth and BUTTERMILK at the end. Pretty darn good. Like your blog btw!

Tracy Ullman. I LOVED her acting and think she would be HILARIOUS to have a knitting conversation with.

I absolutely LOVED Lambikins Hideaway when I was there. The staff was great and the selection was wonderful.

I love love love that store.
