Faves & FOs

Someone asked for a closeup of the Shark Fin Hat FO, so here it is on Betty. It's knit from Insubordiknit bulky wool/mohair handspun using her Monster Hat pattern, but sans Monster. It knit up quickly on US9s and is soft as can be. It fits close and is super warm, especially over the ears. I does take a little getting used to all the admiring stares, however; what a hardship. ;)

Shelby and Patty, SP9 hostesses extraordinaire, have posted a list of "favorites" for each participant to fill out. Although my hostess Kerry, isn't part of it (she too is aweseome and is doing her own drawing), I thought I'd put up my responses anyway; thought it might be fun.

List your favorite:

Actor - Johnny Depp, who share's my birthday
Actress - Helen Mirren, with whom I once ate dinner
Animal - elephant and coyote
Band - Ween
Book - Jitterbug Perfume and Desert Solitaire
Bubble Bath - ew!
Candy - dark chocolate, no nuts
Color - redpinkorange
Drink - microbrew beer (e.g., Bear Republic Racer 5) & good coffee
Flower - gladiolus
Food - sushi
Lip Balm - Dr. Bronner's & Sun Dog's Magic Organic
Lotion - Shea Body Lotion from The Body Shop
Movie - Monty Python & The Holy Grail
Place - Siskiyou Wilderness Area, CA
Song - Summertime by George Gershwin
TV Show - Nip/Tuck and Grey's Anatomy
Yarn - Noro Kureyon & Colinette Point 5
Vacation Spot - Kauai, Hawaii

More fodder for my SP9 secret spoiler. What else is going on around Casa Velma? Oh, a 2nd FO: Cole's Watch Cap. It's a 2x2 ribbed beanie in Manos del Uruguay 'lava' colorway, on US7 needles. He's pretty damn cute in it, isn't he? You should see the shots where he let me dress him up in one of my old wigs from Burning Man...

    Well then your birthday must be June 9. But were you born in 1963? I don't think so... It's scary how much I know about Johnny Depp. Oh and Kauai - one of my favorite spots, too.
