Friday night polls: Changing things up

Friday Night Question Header

I love to ask questions. I used to think I was going to be a newspaper reporter. And then I was a newspaper reporter. But I didn’t love it like I thought I would and to succeed as a reporter, you need to love it to the depth of your being and I simply did not. But I still ask a lot of questions. That’s why I started the Friday Night Poll. Also, I found a cool widget that allowed me to take polls.

However, polls require me to provide answers. What fun is that? How do I learn anything new if I’m already giving you the answers? To that end, I’m changing things up. I’m still going to ask questions, but ones that are open-ended. Hopefully you guys will head to the comments and share your answers. I’ve created a header and come up with my first open-ended question. It’s a simple one:

What’s on your needles right now and why did you pick that pattern? Let me know in the comments below!

Okay, it’s two questions, but I think you can handle it.

  1. I have a new test knit on my needles right now. I picked that pattern because cardigans are terribly useful, and lately I’ve been digging the layered look. This one is intended to be “drapey” and I’m knitting it with store-bought cotton yarn. It should be nice in all seasons!

  2. A scarf I am knitting to go with a hat (already done) and mittens (next in line) to be part of a “keep you toasty” basket for a silent auction to benefit Safe Sanctuary, an awesome animal rescue in faribault! The butterfly hat pattern is one of my absolute favorites, the scarf pattern because it’s a simple but beautiful pattern and the mittens, well because you need them in a keep you toasty basket

  3. This shawl -http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/papyrifera
    I love the leaves pattern at the start and I’m making it to wear at my wedding because my fiancé and I both love nature, wildlife and our garden.
    Its a lovely pattern to knit!

  4. Therapy… knitting in baby alpaca. I wanted something mindless but not too mindless. Alpaca because it’s soooo cold out.

  5. I’m working with Anne Campbell’s Show-Off Stranded Socks pattern, and while the pattern itself has been a dream to work from, the project itself is one that’s fresh out of UFO time-out because of its terrible, terrible yarn. I just wanna free the needles and see these socks on my feet already!
