Knit 1 Tea 2 Color Swap
Knit 1 Tea 2 Color Swap Questionnaire
Do you like loose tea or bags, or both – something you want to try? - Either. I like teabags as they give me the chance to buy smaller quantities and try more types of tea
What is your favorite kind of tea (Brand, flavor, variety, etc)? - I like the English Breakfast & earl Grey kinds of tea. I've always wanted to try the Bush Tea that Mma Precious Ramotswe drinks in The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency books.
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). I'm interested in exploring green
Would you say you were a tea pot kind of person or just a hot water heater kind? Both! On my own I'm a bag in a mug kind of girl, but for two or more...a pot
What tea accessories would you like but have never purchases for yourself? Anything - we're more heavilly weighted towards coffee things here at home
How do you prefer to be pampered? (examples: mani/pedi, bubble bath, yummy treat, etc). Love pedicures and reflexology/aromatherapy. Also love yummy goodies
If you were a kind of yarn what would you be and why? Hmmm... probably alpaca - soft and strong or maybe recycled sari silk - a mix of allsorts with some exotic and some grotty bits thrown in!
If you had to knit/crochet baby booties, a fun fur scarf, or a fair isle sweater, which would you choose and why? The fair isle any day. I love the interplay of colour in fair isle and the sense of making something really special
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?) Garden party - any opportunity to poke around in someone else's borders...
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?) cucumber sandwiches without crusts, warm scones with butter and home made jam, Nigella Lawson's lemoncurd cake
When buying yarn for a project how do you choose - do you buy the one called for or do you substitute? Depends what I like best
What do you carry your knitting/crocheting in when on the go? A small, portable project - like a sock
Favorite movie to watch while knitting/crocheting? You've Got Mail
Are you a traditional tea cup kind of person or a mug type of person? Do you care if they match? Both, but rarely matching
Favorite childhood birthday party? The one where I wore a white lace dress with a blue sash. I was 5, I think.
Favorite type of scone and jam? Fruit scones with just a hint of spice and home made raspberry jam
If you use candles, what is your favorite scent? cinnamon
If you could choose 3 people to have 'tea' with, who would they be and why? (famous or not, living or dead). Mum and Dad, both sadly dead - Dad never got to see my son. Mr Hislop, my Junior School teacher who pushed me to read interesting and challenging books.
You've been invited to a tea party, what 'props' will you wear (formal or casual)? Smart Casual - long skirt with a handknit stole or shawl
Any allergies/preferences you have or are willing to admit to? Nothing
Anything we missed that you want your pal to know?That I appreciate the time and trouble they are putting into this.
