Kathy has a set of questions for us today - but in a little bit of a switch, she has questions contributed by others, which is a whole 'nother set of fun. So I decided to play along.
What fear have you conquered?
Hmm. I guess in a sense, public speaking. I still hate doing it, but can manage to accomplish it without making myself sick, while also being fairly coherent.
What's your favorite spicy food?
Oh I love spicy food! What comes to mind immediately are Thai Drunken Noodles. If they are on a menu, I'll always order them.
What's a color you never wear?
Yellow. With my coloring, it's not pretty. Too bad, because I think a soft yellow is such a pretty color. If I do wear it at all, it's as an accessory, and always away from my face.
When sock knitters want a bigger needle project, what do you knit?
Usually hats. The needles are bigger, but not big enough to be painful.
When did you last read Shakespeare?
Probably about ten years ago, before a trip to the Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Ontario, Canada. I've watched Shakespeare more recently, in the series "The Hollow Crown," which we enjoy.
Are you gregarious or solitary?
Solitary. Though I can become gregarious with my family and close friends when the mood strikes.
What is your favorite cookie recipe and why?
I'd have to say basic chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin. Because I nearly always have the ingredients on hand for one or the other of them.
Do you dip your PB and J in milk?
This is the one I find disturbing. NO. I cannot even fathom thinking to do this! (This one is from Kathy's husband, and ... wow.)
Do you feel you are becoming a better knitter or have your skills leveled off?
I think I'm becoming a better knitter, albeit slowly, and in specific ways. There are still a lot of things I don't quite "get" and/or that I need to work on in order to broaden my horizons.
When's the last time you broke a needle?
About two years ago, a tiny sock needle I was using broke when I was trying maneuver stitches in a SSK. Fortnuately, only a bit broke off, so The Tim sanded down the broken end and I can still use it.
What about you? Do any of these questions speak to you? Let me know in the comments, or play along!
