Chat Back for May 22

Answering questions from comments and email.

MomSue84 asked . . .
Just wondering how you like the Simply Socks Yarn Company house yarn and the KP Stroll?

The Simply Socks Yarn Company socks are done and the KP Felici (easily confused with Stroll) socks are about half done.

If life allows, I'll be posting pictures and comments on both yarns next week.

How are the bluebird babies doing?

They're doing great guessing by the amount of food being delivered by the parents.

The weather hasn't been conducive to having the nest box open long enough to take pictures, and now that it's warming up it's too late. I don't open the nest box after 13 days because they're exercising their wings and may jump out.

Hopefully we'll have a late spring nesting with more photo opportunities.

Nancy asked . . .
I was wondering what your brothers name is?

Brother Dave is David G. Monette.

His website is Monette Trumpet

How long did this take you???? (Sprout)

About three weeks total elapsed time. Sprout was a quick, simple knit and the only seaming was the sleeves.

Sweaters without long sleeves seem to finish in half the time of a long sleeved sweater. That can't actually be true, but it seems like it when I'm doing the knitting.

Jean asked . . .
What do you think of this yarn? (Cotlin)

My thoughts on Cotlin yarn are in this post.

To sum up: It's soooo much nicer than knitting with 100% cotton. Feels better, wears better, launders better.
