Defeat The Winter Doldrums Questionnaire


Here's is my questionnaire for the Defeat The Winter Doldrums dishcloth swap (illustrated with photos courtesy of my star model, Zeus!)! Registration opened today for anyone interested...

1. Do you knit, crochet, or do both? Knit only

2. What types of needles do you enjoy using for making dishcloths? For dishcloths, I usually use bamboo straights. The Peace Fleece needles are always fun to work with!

3. What types of cotton do you enjoy using for making dishcloths? Is there any that you've been wanting to try? The 'ole standby, Sugar 'n Cream, especially now that they're coming out with variations (stripes, twists, etc). I love Debbie Bliss cotton also and Lion Brand is not bad. I'd like to try some organic cottons.

4. What color(s) are your kitchen and bath decorated in (if any)? Bathroom is lilac (pale purple) and kitchen is a sage/minty green color.

5. What are your favorite colors for yarns? Least favorite? I tend to always lean towards fallish colors (think fall leaves in New England), jewel tones and most shades of purple. My least favorite colors would be anything neon!

6. Do you like Winter, or do you count the days until it ends? Both. Fall is my favorite time of year, but I love winter too. I like the pretty show showers, but could do without the major Nor'Easter storms (or having 100 feet of snow dumped on us in one month!). I like the cooler, sweater wearing temps, but could do without the frigid, below zero days. Zeus wants to know when the summer sun is coming so he can lay in it instead of hiding under the blankies...


7. What's your favorite way to brighten your day when you're down in the dumps? Spending time with my furbabies... no matter how bad your day is, you can't help but smile. They give unconditional love 24/7... no matter what! Vegging on the couch with a good great cup of coffee, my knitting and some guilty pleasure tv (think celeb reality shows on VH1 and E) watching is always great too!

8. What is your favorite treat to indulge in and when your down in the dumps? What isn't??? Ice cream (anything peanut butter), chocolate (milk and white), peanut butter cups, chocolate covered gummy bears (don't knock 'em til you try 'em... YUM-O!), Kettle popcorn, swedish fish, gummy berries..... need I go on?

9. Do you drink coffee? Tea? Cocoa? Yes, yes and yes! I drink coffee all day long daily and enjoy most light to medium roasts, breakfast blends & flavors (no decaf though ... what's the point?). I also love tea and have been drinking more of it lately (need to get some of those neat honey spoons). As for cocoa, I'm a New England girl, of course... its a winter staple!

10. If you could take a vacation starting tomorrow and go anywhere for one week and money were no object, where would you go and what would you do? Hawaii!!!!!!! Although, when I finally do get to go there, I don't think a week is long enough. To go all that way, I think its a 2 week minimum vacation, don't you? I want to see all the sites, the volcanoes, the beaches, the sunsets, the locals, the shops... taste all the yummy food, etc.

11. Do you have any allergies or aversions your pal should be aware of? No cigarette smoke please.


I told the big guy we might get some more snow... and he suddendly popped up and ditched the blankie... "Snow? Someone say SNOW? Are ya gonna throw me some snow balls??? huh? huh? are ya, are ya???"
