Kathy has some good holiday season questions for us this week in her quora, so I thought I'd share my answers. 'Cause, you know, I'd just hate to deprive you ... ;-)
*Can you knit something by heart?
I can knit basic socks by heart, and now, I'm 99% sure I could knit both the Turn A Square Hat and Portfolio Scarf by heart! Though who knows in 6 months, they may be part of the mists in my mind.
*Would you like some yarn for Christmas?
Let's just say I wouldn't be upset. But it's not like I'm currently wishing for any particular yarn, and hoping against hope that someone gifts me with it.
*Did you shovel any snow this December?
No. We've had lots of rain instead of snow.
*Can you make a bow for a package or a gift?
Yes. I love wrapping presents and making bows. They aren't very elaborate, but they are bows ...
*Do you buy used books or new?
Hm. Frankly, I don't buy a lot of books at all, other than maybe the occasional knitting book. Then it's a mix of the two. Most of the time, I'll borrow books from the library.
*Have you seen a living Nativity?
No, and to be honest, I'd really only be interested in the animals anyway.
*Have you ever received home-baked cookies in the mail?
Just the other day, as a matter of fact! A co-worker from long ago, who was originally trained as a pastry chef, has sent us Christmas cookies ever since she moved out of town. We enjoy them, but I'm always a little bit surprised/flummoxxed, since though we were co-workers, we were never particularly close, and she is truly one of the strangest people I have ever met. Having said that, we love getting the package of cookies!
*When was the last time your toes froze and your nose was red?
I honestly can't remember the last time my toes froze. And my nose is always red in cold weather, regardless of temperature or how I'm dressed.
*Did you know that Christmas and Hanukkah are intertwined this year?
Yes, I did. I always check, since I am intrigued every year to find out the dates for Hanukkah.
*Do you love to get a Christmas card?
Yes I do! It's actually part of the reason I started my little holiday project, which has been extended through tomorrow, December 6. (So far we have a small but enthusiastic group.) I love to get mail in the first place, and Christmas and holiday cards make me feel even happier!
Though admittedly, I do not want to see this happen - I told The Tim, I hope Jack the kitten doesn't find a selfie stick somewhere ... ;-)
