Chat Back for January 22

Responding to comments left since the last time I did Chat Back.

Mrs. Susan Wike asked . . .
What is a good feeder for cardinals?

Cardinals like their seed on flat, horizontal surfaces. They do not like vertical feeders like tube feeders. Their favorite seed, at least at my house, is black sunflower.

You can pay lots of money for tray type flat feeders, or you can put out a board like we did. The board is the favorite feeder for most of our birds.

Judy S. asked . . .
How many stitches wide is this one? I've been doing 34 and yours looks narrower than that; is it?

Anne's scarf was knit on 26 stitches and is five inches wide. The scarf is a little over five feet long.

Specs on this scarf are here.

NMjewel asked . . .
When you doubled the yarn, did you try to match up the colors or was it serendipitous the whole way?

I went for a random tweedy look. The colors repeats are very short on this yarn and I let them be serendipitous. Some places the colors match up, mostly they don't.
