Time Once Again for Some Purloining

Once again on this fine Monday, I am purloining a little Monday Q&A from Kathy B at Compassionknit in Wisconsin. Here goes:

*Do you prefer an analog or digital clock?

I prefer a digital clock and the reason is a bit unusual. I used to wear very, very thick glasses (thicker than coke bottles) and then of course, graduated to contact lenses. Hard to believe but it is now 18 years ago since I had Lasik done.

Countdown to What the Fade Mystery KAL

There’s no denying the fact that Andrea Mowry’s patterns are hot, and you can’t just knit one. So as I finish up (trying to at the very least) her Free Your Fade Shawl, I am already prepared for her new pattern, What the Fade? It is a mystery shawl knit along, and not my first time at a mystery KAL rodeo. I have knit many in the past…socks and shawls for the most part.
