Five Friday Questions
We do this on a parenting board I have been on for years. Someone posts five questions on a Friday morning, topical or not, and everyone answers. So copy and paste the questions and then post your reply! It's a fun way to learn more about people and get new ideas for yourself too.

1. What new knitting skill or trick have you learned lately?

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?

4. If you could visit any LYS in the world, which one would it be?

5. What are you making for dinner tonight?

1. I learned how to do short row shaping for shoulders --> 3 needle bind-off, rather than the 'stepped' decreases. MUCH nicer!!

2. I'd like to meet Nicky Epstein, or (not sure if she's considered celebrity or not) Wendy who has the blog www.knitandtonic.typepad.com/knitandtonic , or Grumperina

3. I'd like the 'Knitting on the Edge' and 'Knitting Over the Edge'

4. Chix!!!

5. Dinner???? Hmmmm, probably waffles or order pizza. I know, exciting!

Friday Five
1. What new knitting skill or trick have you learned lately?
ssk --Slip the first stitch knitwise and slip the second stitch purlwise then knit them together. Amy says it makes the stitches lay flatter.

None, I couldn't care less about celebrities.

3. What knitting book would you like to add to your personal library next?
Yarn Harlot--it's on my birthday wishlist

4. If you could visit any LYS in the world, which one would it be?
The one in my town, so she can stay in business!!

5. What are you making for dinner tonight?
Whatever is in my freezer from Trader Joe's and cooks in five minutes using one pan--I have knitting to do!!

Uh... dunno. I'm pretty shy about meeting people.

June Hiatt's Principles of Knitting.

WEBS.

DH is the cook. I think he was planning to whip up some pesto, but I may suggest going out.

Great idea, gardenmommy!

1. Socks! They're ugly, but hey! Socks!
2. Tracy Ullman
3. I don't own a single knitting book, so I'd have to say VOGUE KNITTING -- The Ultimate Knitting Book
4. I LOVE Edna Hart in Los Angeles.
5. Hmm... not sure. Perhaps my winter squash bisque? (I have the recipe on my blog, if anyone has a hankering for something warm and flavor-filled!)
