  1. Ooooh!! Fun times:
    1. e, hmmmm… I really don’t know.
    2. b, aaaaaaahhhhhhh!!
    3. c, yay for the internets!
    4. e, congrats on makin’ it thus far, injury free!
    5. a, hmmm… if anyone gets this wrong, I think they should be disqualified!
    6. c, as I’m pretty sure it all depends on the gauge, stitch pattern, and size of article being knit ;-) GOSH I’m so clever ;-)
    7. e, although I’m pretty sure that you end up sleeping on it as well. And I’m sure you have enough yardage to make it over a football field, but the biggers question is, how many times over ;-)
    8. b, I’ll wager… I know the Kromski, the ashford, the country spinner, the drum carder, but how many drop spindles do you have?
    9. a, total guess, but since I’ve never seen any knit appetizers on your ravelry site, I’ll bet on this one since every thing else could easily fit.
    10. a, but I’d love to see b done in a nice cotton candy pink mohair with plenty of yarn-overs and a few strategic sequins ;-) HA!

  2. I’m going to give this a whirl:
    1. c
    2. b
    3. c
    4. d
    5. a (though I think e as well, since you love farm wool)
    6. c
    7. e
    8. c
    9. a
    10. a
