Sky, Frog Report, and What American Accent Do You Have?

Bright, sunny, cold Saturday sky on December 9, 2006Just a little whining. . .

It's cold, sunny, and crisp. By crisp, I mean that the forecast given yesterday (temps above freezing) has been revised. The temps may get above freezing tomorrow (Sunday), too late to avoid shoveling if I want to go to church tomorrow morning.

And I do.

So I did.

Frog Report
And a little more whining. . .

For the past two days I've been knitting on Bob's Christmas hat. Five stitches/inch with two strands of yarn held together. Last night, I tried it on his big head, and it was too small.

Before going to bed last night, I frogged the whole thing. I hate frogging something knit with two strands - meaning I'm winding off two separate balls - meaning a tangled mess or two before I'm done.

And that's why there's no knitting news today. Maybe tomorrow.

What American Accent Do You Have?
I loved this quiz. It had me pronouncing words out loud to answer the questions, and the results are right on!

When I go grocery shopping, I take the "pop" bottles back. I'm an "Inland North" gal all the way.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."
