Unwanted comment

Sorry for any inconvience, but I have to turn on the word varification last night. I seem to be getting spam on my blog! Go figure! Six different times. So I apologize for the inconvience of verification when you are so kind to take the time to leave a message.

Next order of business.... I don't know if I mentioned it, but I joined SP6 and I heard from me secret pal today (hello!!) and that was wonderful on this crazy day! But I have not heard from the hostess or do I even know who I will be spoiling! arg! But I will wait until Sunday morning to see if I get a little something in my email box. Keep your fingers crossed! Plus I have lots of questions to answer so I will do that at the end of this post.

My husband and I dropped off our niece's birthday present. She and mother loved the two little ponchos I made. The white one fit better. But both were really cute! I wish I had thought to take the camera so you could see, but it was about 90 degrees today and the ponchos didn't stay on for too long!

My new clerk started today, I gave 4 presentation on Constitution Day (Sept 17)... only 20 more to go, tried to train her in what her duties will be, learned how to use an epi-pen, and taught all my other library classes, etc... I am beat today. Tomorrow will be just as challenging with all this plus Open House at 7pm for the parents. Is the weekend here yet?

Ok here it is the answers to the posted questions:
1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer higher quality and/or natural fibers)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? Or is it all the same to you?
* I use different yarns for different projects. I use acrylics for a lot of charity projects, but I tend to use better quailty for smaller projects and gifts. So no I am not a yarn snob. I wish I could be some days, but not really.

2. Do you spin? Crochet?
* I do crochet. It goes faster for me, but I love knitting more!

9. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)
* I like current alternative bands. I do believe that one thing in our house plays MP3s, and of course our computer.

10. What's your favorite color? Or--do you have a color family/season/palette you prefer? Any colors you just can't stand?
* I like blacks and greys.. Blues are nice, greens too. Dark colors are good too... like burgandy, purple... I am not a fan of pink or pastel colors.
