Knit 1 Tea 2 Questionnaire

OK sign ups start August 3, but I have a busy charity bike event this weekend so am posting...

Knit 1 Tea 2 Color Swap Questionnaire
Do you like loose tea or bags, or both – something you want to try?
I like both

What is your favorite kind of tea (Brand, flavor, variety, etc)?
I received some of the Harney tea in a swap package, cinnamon and pomegranate...holy moley just so darned good!!

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).
Hmmmm..I would like to try red as I have had the others

Would you say you were a tea pot kind of person or just a hot water heater kind?
Tea pot when time allows

What tea accessories would you like but have never purchases for yourself?
A tea ball thingie

How do you prefer to be pampered? (examples: mani/pedi, bubble bath, yummy treat, etc).
Ooooohhhh always a bubble bath, then DH gives the most amazing footrubs

If you were a kind of yarn what would you be and why?
I believe I would be a superwash wool, very soft, sturdy long lasting hard wearing and able to clean up nicely.

If you had to knit/crochet baby booties, a fun fur scarf, or a fair isle sweater, which would you choose and why?
Fair Isle sweater....I have done the others many many times. I am knitting Dale ski sweaters now as we are going to the 2010 Olympics

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?)
Believe it or not when I was younger I was invited to a tea party. I had to miss it though as my Mom went into labor with baby number 10 I believe, there are 11 of us. I am number 3 but eldest daughter so had to watch the others...


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?)
Hmmm...teatime in Bermuda always came with a tiered little pastry tray filled with a lovely assortment so I would love to replicate that.

When buying yarn for a project how do you choose - do you buy the one called for or do you substitute?I do both equally...if it is for someone I generally use what is called for...otherwise what I have or like.

What do you carry your knitting/crocheting in when on the go?
Oh scroll down and check out the lovely felted Noni I have. I have a few totes from swaps I use.

Favorite movie to watch while knitting/crocheting?
Nothing sad as I can't see my stitches then, I love war movies, but my all time favorite is Willy Wonka

Are you a traditional tea cup kind of person or a mug type of person? Do you care if they match?Is there anything nicer than many different teacup/saucer sets ona table? I like the teacup and saucer to match but they don't have to match other teacups and saucers.

Favorite childhood birthday party?
Hmmmm....no answer for this one, sorry

Favorite type of scone and jam?
Ooooohhh my, blueberry and blueberry or strawberry jam

If you use candles, what is your favorite scent?
Bakery smells

If you could choose 3 people to have 'tea' with, who would they be and why? (famous or not, living or dead).My Dad, my boys. My Dad passed away in Jan 2005, I miss him. We spent a few years being distant and he didn't get to know DH til the last weeks. My boys, we don't seem to have much kick back and relax time together unless it is a vacation. I would enjoy having tea and conversation with them.

You've been invited to a tea party, what 'props' will you wear (formal or casual)?
Heehee, great question...gloves of course,a brooch at the throat of my blouse, high button shoes, A longish skirt with a petticoat.


Any allergies/preferences you have or are willing to admit to? Not me but nuts in the family, oops family is allergic to nuts


Anything we missed that you want your pal to know? No just have fun...
