Anyone want to try and tie the one poster with 100%, get your answers in by tomorrow at 6:00 – that’s when I’ll print all the comments with all the attempts and the correct answers.

    Well, I obviously did not pay close attention. I totally flunked.

    However, I am wondering what kind of yarn you use and your favorite colors. I’ve never bought yarn before so you better be specific.

    Awwwww!!

    Oh, I’m kidding, but I do love yarn. Mostly lately I’ve been using the “Baby Bernat Yarns” – mostly because they are readily available at Joann’s and Wal Mart. You have to go with what you got, you know?

    But they are really lovely, soft cuddly yarns and they work up very nicely. And they come in really interesting and pretty colors – which is always my first requirement – I love interesting colored yarns – flecks, lately I’m into “flecks” of color.

    Don’t ask me why. I have no clue.

    Kim, since you made this an open book test and anyone was free to do the research, including me, I’ll admit, will you consider giving honorable mention to the person who got the best score WITHOUT RESEARCH?? A second “From memory” winner??

  13. will you consider giving honorable mention to the person who got the best score WITHOUT RESEARCH??

    Sure! There can be a “from memory” winner!

    Hey Kim,

    A Pop Quiz? Of all the dirty, low down, rotten, sneaky, snarky tricks. And you give a deadline of 6PM even though the grading curve has already been shot to shit?

    Can a sister get a break? I was out all day yesterday buying no less than 25 belated birthday, wedding, shower, new baby, graduation, and sorry-you-fell-of-the-wagon greeting cards and gifts since I’ve been watching the trail all summer and fell behind.

    Will there be a make up test or an extra credit assignment?

  15. Will there be a make up test or an extra credit assignment?

    Yes, we’ve talked about that. All those who want to really suck up will be sending me yarn.

    I must congratulate you first for the quantity and depth of questions. Incredible.
    Second I must congratulate your search feature because I’ve been sitting here typing in words and then looking through the blogs for that item.
    I don’t think that I’ll get it all done but it has been fun.

  17. Scottie Rich said

    Love, love, love your blog. Just discovered it about a week ago. Love your personal comments as they are always the same as mine would be if I had your brain. I failed miserably with the test and I thought I watched the trial everyday. I am hooked on you!

  18. Kim said

    I just wrote my final “legal” exam on August 10th….Gonna have to skip this one – Quite impressive though, makes me wonder if I could keep my “honours” standing after writing your in-depth PS Quiz….
    So, where am I shipping this box o’yarn too?

    LOL!
    Have a great weekend everyone…..
