Knitter's Virtual Vacation Swap Questionnaire

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
1. If you could visit any state in the US, which would it be? Alaska - I've always wanted to go on an Alaskan cruise. My sister and her husband went on one and had a great time - the pictures looked fascinating.
2. If you could visit any country in the world, other than your own, which would it be and why? Ireland. My ancestry is Irish. I love the history, the old castles, and of course the Irish yarn!
3. Have you ever driven across several states/providence/countries? I've driven from Maine to New Jersey many times, across New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in Canada, and across Morocco and Spain many years ago.
4. Have you ever visited someplace you consider exotic? Yes
Where was it? I would have to say Morocco - but it really wasn't a visit as I lived there for two years when my husband was stationed there.

5. What was your favorite "travel" vacation? I think I'd have to say a trip with my husband to Nova Scotia. It was a very relaxed trip with no schedule or deadlines, and the scenery was breathtaking, especially in Cape Breton.
6. Have you ever played tourist in your own home city/state (if international, country)? Oh yes! Explain. My sister is an avid traveler and when she travels, she wants to see everything there is to see. So whenever she visits in Maine, we find someplace we have never been before and 'play tourist'. One of my favorite places to play tourist is just across the bay from me in Bar Harbor.
7. Are you a museum visitor, beach comer or an amusement seeker? A little bit of each.

8. What's your favorite type of yarn? I love them all! I'm really not a yarn snob. I seem to use Cascade, Galway, Noro a lot, but I love to try new and different yarns.
9. What's your least favorite type of yarn? Red Heart Super Saver :)
10. What items do you like to knit/crochet? Mostly, I love to make felted items - bags, hats, slippers, etc. I also knit scarves, socks, washcloths, baby items, shawls (but not lace).
11. What do you pack, knit/crochet wise when you go on vacation? Small projects like socks or washcloths.

12. What other crafts do you do/would like to do other than Knit/Crochet? I've loved crafts all my life - but right now, other than knitting, it's mostly scrapbooking, card making, and some beading.
13. Are you allergic to anything? (Yarn wise or treat wise) Not yarn or treats, but smoke, perfume and cats.
14. What is your favorite color? Blue
Least Favorite? I really like all colors - but if I have to pick one, guess it would be yellow.
15. Sweet or Savory (Treat not personality)? Sweet!!!
16. Anything else we are forgetting to ask that you think your partner desperately needs to know. The best part of any swap is getting to know your pal, so I hope that you will be in touch often. Other than that - have fun!

Not that I'm biased at all...
