Knit 1 Tea 2 Color Swap Questionnaire

Knit 1 Tea 2 Color Swap Questionnaire

  • Do you like loose tea or bags, or both – something you want to try? I've never had loose tea, so would especially love that along with tips from an expert.
  • What is your favorite kind of tea (Brand, flavor, variety, etc)? I'm new to tea, so nothing too strong flavored. I've recently been introduced to Chai Tea made with Soy at Starbucks. Yum.
  • Favorite color in regards to tea or one you would like to try? (black, green, red, and white) (keeping in mind that this is how this swap is set up). Well, I've never had red and it's one of my favorite colors so .....
  • Would you say you were a tea pot kind of person or just a hot water heater kind? I WANT to be a teapot person ... right now, I'm a lowly microwaver of water.
  • What tea accessories would you like but have never purchases for yourself? Truth to be told, I don't own much other than two decorative tea cups and saucers, and a beautiful tea tray. I can use it all! =)
  • How do you prefer to be pampered? (examples: mani/pedi, bubble bath, yummy treat, etc). If I'm pampering myself, I like to kick back, soft music, candles and spend some time reading.
  • If you were a kind of yarn what would you be and why? A multi-textured handspun ... a reflection of all the tugs and twists in my life turned into something beautiful.
  • If you had to knit/crochet baby booties, a fun fur scarf, or a fair isle sweater, which would you choose and why? The crocheted baby booties since it's a fast-results project that is useful yet I can be very creative with the pattern and yarn choices.
  • What other event would make you skip a tea party? (A garden party? A book club meeting? A yoga class? Opening night for a new action thriller? etc?) If I agreed to attend, I would only skip the party for a family emergency that no one else could handle.
  • What treat would you consider essential at your tea party? (Sweet? Salty? Scones? Those petite pastry trays with a couple of all sorts of things? Little crust less sandwiches?) I have a horrible sweet tooth, so petite fours or mini-cupcakes are more my style.
  • When buying yarn for a project how do you choose - do you buy the one called for or do you substitute? I've done both, but prefer to use the yarn a pattern was designed for if at all possible.
  • What do you carry your knitting/crocheting in when on the go? Adorable bags I've received from swaps!
  • Favorite movie to watch while knitting/crocheting? I love chick flicks that I can cry with ..
  • Are you a traditional tea cup kind of person or a mug type of person? Do you care if they match? I want to be a matching tea cup/saucer girlie-girl
  • Favorite childhood birthday party? We didn't really have parties, even though my parents spoiled me rotten with gifts.
  • Favorite type of scone and jam? Cranberry-orange scones, with any seedless jam.
  • If you use candles, what is your favorite scent? Peach or vanilla .. NOT flowery.
  • If you could choose 3 people to have 'tea' with, who would they be and why? (famous or not, living or dead). Mary Engelbreit, Nicky Epstein and YOU (my new friend)
  • You've been invited to a tea party, what 'props' will you wear (formal or casual)? I would LOVE to dress to the nines with lace gloves, a hat or perhaps a lacy handmade shawl.
  • Any allergies/preferences you have or are willing to admit to? Milk over dark chocolate, soy over cream, country over contemporary.
  • Anything we missed that you want your pal to know? I'm very excited to participate, and will learn as much as I can so I can also be a good swapper for my partner in return. In the yarn category, I'd love some SWTC Karaoke #306 for a new felted bag (haven't found any locally), or some Cherry Tree Hill merino. Thanks for reading!

Welcome aboard. Love the answer to your yarn question!

In 2006 I read 76 books, if you need anymore ideas for your list I have got tons of recommendations!

Guess what I am from Oregon too! Portland to be exact.

Happy knitting, swapping and such!
