Word for the Day

Here on the creek we like a good cryptic crossword puzzle, primarily The Nation’s puzzle.  It arrives weekly and both households take pencil to paper and exorcise our brain cells to twist and turn the clues into  the words that only the likes of Frank W Lewis can pull out of his hat.  Mr Lewis is 90-something and has been writing the cryptic puzzles for the magazine for decades.  This guy must be a blast at a party.

I love learning a new word or discovering I know an obscure answer.  
For all the knitters out there – here’s my new word from last week’s puzzle.
Etui def: A small, usually ornamental case for holding articles such as needles.  

photo coming soon of my etui – 
var gaJsHost = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://ssl.” : “http://www.”);document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src='” + gaJsHost + “google-analytics.com/ga.js’ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”));
var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker(“UA-xxxxxx-x”);pageTracker._trackPageview();
