Info for my secret pals and some excuses for the rest of you...
Since I can't get my butt in gear for sock updates, I've got a couple answers for my secret pals who I hope haven't totally given up on my by now. First, for my Sockret Pal, who asked what my dream storage solution would be for circular needles. I have been racking my brain over this one since you asked, and I'm having a horrible time deciding. I like the hanging ones that have a little pocket to stick each needle in, but I'm afraid that between kids and cats, it wouldn't have a fighting chance (although I could always hide it from them). Maybe a little pocket folder thing (sort of like the Knit Picks needle case) would work? With a pocket for each needle that I could label on the outside with the needle length/size and then the needle would be coiled up inside? I think that regardless of how the needles are stored, the most important thing would be an attached needle gauge since most of my circs don't have size written on them and I can never find my needle sizer when I need it. Hope that helps a little bit!
And now for my SP9, who asked if I reread books I like and how many times I've read my favorite book. I have to confess that I don't reread books very often. I think the book I've reread most often would be "Wicked" by Gregory Maguire, which I've read at least three times and wouldn't mind reading again, now that I'm thinking about it. I tend to like new material when I pick something up to read, especially since I don't get much reading time in these days. Movies, on the other hand, I'll watch over and over. I've seen Groundhog Day probably a hundred times.
I will try my best to get off my butt and post those updates along with a little recap of the Nancy Bush extravaganza I was lucky enough to attend this past weekend. In the meantime, you can stalk Katrina, who was there for all three classes with me but hasn't posted yet either, and Amanda, who was there for the Estonian Traveling Stitches class and has already written up her glowing review. I will confess to having quite the little crush on Nancy. She is just like her books, which is to say absolutely fabulous! I love her. I really do!
