I'm sorry about posting this here - technical issues I cannot deal with (for now).

1. Are you religious? I was raised as Church of Scotland, but now I don’t go to Church, but I do have ”beliefs” and I do pray.
2. How long have you been knitting? Would you consider yourself a Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced? Taught by my Dad to knit when I was 6 years old, used to knit a lot but lapsed for many years. I have only taken up the hobby again in last couple of years. Therefore beginning all over again! A Born Again Knitter.
3. Do you have any other hobbies besides knitting? Making jewellery, all arts and crafts.
4. Favourite colour(s)? Purples – all shades from lavender to dark hues, I like browns, in fact I like everything except White and Yellow.
5. Do you collect anything? Happy memories.
6. Are you allergic to any fibers or animals? Cat fur. I also have an allergy to “harsh wool” next to my skin. My mother used to knit vests when we were kids and I always remember sweating in the vast, hairy, itchy wool and always feeling like you had ’fluff up your nose”.
7. Do you have any pets? Yes, a rabbit named Hoppy –I sneeze a lot when I am around him but can’t bear to part with him – it’s my daughter Hannah’s bunny.
8. Coffee, Tea, or Hot Chocolate?
9. Cookies or Sweets? In my dream world -Both!!! – I have a VERY sweet tooth. Actual,y, either is lovely to have.
10. Do you knit socks? No – last time I knit a pair I was in school and it took me the whole year to finish the project.
11. If not socks then what? (tell us about your favourite knits). In days of old I did knit a few sweaters; now I have NO time! I knit scarves, hats, gloves, fingerless gloves (for the moment!) and blankets for Hannah’s dolls and bears!
12. Do you put up a Christmas tree? If not then what do you do? Yes
13. Favourite holiday treats? Scottish shortbread, chocolates.
14. Favourite holiday smells? Tangerines, cloves, chocolate, food roasting in the oven.
15. Do you celebrate Christmas in a traditional or unconventional way? Please elaborate. Well, we still leave out cookies and milk for SANTA and carrots for Rudolph – don’t know how much longer this will last as Hannah, my daughter is 11 ½ now!!! If we are not going to anyone’s for Xmas things proceed at a very leisurely pace throughout the day with lots, and lots of eating!!
16. What are your favourite holiday traditions? To eat chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. We like to watch the “Wizard of Oz” and I love “The Snowman” where there’s just the story with music and no words and I always cry! Usually play whatever new board games we have on Xmas day.
17. Finish the sentence: “For me Christmas is all about……”spending time at home, relaxing and being thankful for what I have”
18. If you were a Christmas ornament you would be……? A special one? – one that people take out year after year.
19. What was your favourite gift you’ve ever received? Or given? Mm, difficult one – usually whatever hand-made item my daughter made at school. She also bought me some lavender body spray which she knows I love.
20. When do you start your Christmas? July – I try to start buyng in little “bits and pieces”. When I lived in Australia we actually had a Xmas in July event which was absolutely fantastic with music and real Xmas food and presents – the best one ever!
21. Do you send Christmas cards? Do you make them or buy them? Yes, try to make for “special people” and buy the rest.
22. What is your favourite Christmas dish? Well, I like everything – roast potatoes, carrots, sprouts, gravy, roast beef, etc. etc. etc.!! Chocolate anything!
23. Carolers are at your door. What do you do? Be nice to them, Singalong.
24. When do you open presents? Christmas Eve or Christmas morning? If we cannot resist, maybe just open one on Xmas Eve and the rest on Xmas morning. I have been known to carefully unwrap a present from under the tree before Xmas, have a peek and then re-wrap it for Xmas day..tut!..tut!.
25. Do you celebrate with family or friends or both? Usually just Hannah and I if friends are otherwise busy (no family here), oh and Hoppy the rabbit.

WooHoo!! I finally got it up! And just in the (Saint) Nick of time, too! LOL

I've finally posted the questionnaire to my blog. Sorry about the delay. I was out of town and internet access was unexpectedly spotty. But I still made the deadline. That is something.

Shawnee said...
