Peacock Plans

You may remember I plan to use the fabrics on the left with the gray grunge jelly roll on the right. Cause I know you have nothing better to do than focus all your attention on my plans!!! OK, so maybe not. Well, I had no idea what I was going to do with these fabs, just knew they would become a something. Knew they HAD to become a something. But what?

Well, I have found that something. A “Not-So” Scrappy Granny Square. I don’t know why, but the colors just scream use me in this block! I am not sure how I will place the fabrics, I am thinking I will change it up and show each color in different spots. All I need to do, to determine their placement, is to take a photo in great light and then change it to mono to show the contrast levels of each fabric. Then I can decide which way to radiate them from the center.

In knitting news, more afghan squares and more baby hats are happening. Maybe I should look back at the other Challenges/Goals I planned to work on in February? Like the cabled wrap-that-will-be-turned-into-a-poncho-instead and the Cameo Flower Shawl that will-continue-on-as-a-shawl? Maybe this weekend. We will have furry guests, so knitting is the best option to keep a watchful eye on the one who is still a puppy-who-doesn’t-know-how-to-do-his-business-outside!

In non choosing-a-quilt-design dilemmas, how should one handle comment responses? I used to email any that had an attached addy, or comment on their blog if not. But then I started responding to the comments on the blog post. And now I feel like I should respond with email. I am so confused! What’s your take on the proper way to handle this. There was even a time I didn’t respond at all, which is just rude. Well, maybe not rude, definitely not rude if that’s how you handle it, but that definitely doesn’t feel right to me. So, help a blogger out here.

OK, I’m done. It’s time to get back to whatever I was doing.

    Good plans all the way around! Isn’t it funny how things just speak to you? I get that with yarn. I’m just not always good about listening.
    The comments are a hard one. I answer mine in the comments particularly if there is a question because I figure someone else might have the same question. I’ll email if the answer is too involved or is a huge tangent. I hope you figure out what works for you.

      Thanks, I hope I can get to this soon before I decide to not do it for whatever reason! Like all those must knits that I never cast on. You can relate? As to comments I guess the easiest is replying on blog, but then I never go back and see if someone has responded to my comments on their blog, so maybe I will think on it a bit more.

        Boy can I relate! I’m forever making plans and changing my mind.

    I try to visit the blogs who comment on mine. But I dont’ expect anything. I know we are all busy. SHaring your post is a gift in and of itself

    love the link – not so scrappy – looks heavenly!! I’m knitting dishcloths and a cowl, easy peasy and oh so comforting.

      It is adorable, isn’t it! I have the it h to cast on another willow cowl, but trying to resist!

    If there is an ettiquite I haven’t spotted it. I repond to comments within my blog, unless they are months late and I never heard of the person making the comment when I assume they are fishing for comments on their own blog. I do think it rude not to respond to comments.

    • chrisknits February 9, 2018 / 10:18 am

      Thanks for offering your thoughts. I guess I just don’t want to appear rude or aloof. But then, I don’t expect replies to comments I make, so maybe I am over thinking it.

    Chris, there is somewhere in the admin for WordPress to set up so that when you reply by email, the reply is added as a response in the comments. That’s what I do. I
