Do you like loose tea or bags, or both – something you want to try? I like both, though I usually like bagged. I think I use mainly bagged because I cannot find my strainer since we moved and everytime I go to the store, I forget to buy another one.
What is your favorite kind of tea (Brand, flavor, variety, etc)? My favorite tea in the world is any black tea mixed with lavender. But I generally stick to the black teas, especially Earl and Lady Grey, Darjeelings, with the occasional white tea thrown in.
Favorite color in regards to tea or one you would like to try? (black, green, red, and white) (keeping in mind that this is how this swap is set up). Black tea is my favorite
Would you say you were a tea pot kind of person or just a hot water heater kind? Tea Pot, I own a Brown Betty and an Electric Kettle, but some times I get lazy and just throw a bag in a cup
What tea accessories would you like but have never purchases for yourself? A nice strainer, I guess and maybe those fancy sugar cubes
How do you prefer to be pampered? (examples: mani/pedi, bubble bath, yummy treat, etc). I love hand cream and anything that smells of lavender. I am a bit of a lavender fiend
If you were a kind of yarn what would you be and why? Sock yarn, because it is just the coolest
If you had to knit/crochet baby booties, a fun fur scarf, or a fair isle sweater, which would you choose and why? baby booties, because turning a heel makes me feel clever
What other event would make you skip a tea party? (A garden party? A book club meeting? A yoga class? Opening night for a new action thriller? etc?) Probably a knitting class, i am always looking for classes that I can take so I can learn new techniques
What treat would you consider essential at your tea party? (Sweet? Salty? Scones? Those petite pastry trays with a couple of all sorts of things? Little crust less sandwiches?) scones and double devonshire cream and honey
When buying yarn for a project how do you choose - do you buy the one called for or do you substitute? It depends on the project, but I will usually substitute. I like to use what I like and I feel comfortable knitting
What do you carry your knitting/crocheting in when on the go? Of course, I am an avid sock knitter
Favorite movie to watch while knitting/crocheting? I like BBC or Masterpiece theater type dramas. Period pieces mainly
Are you a traditional tea cup kind of person or a mug type of person? Do you care if they match? I don't care if they match, but I do prefer drinking tea from a cup but I am not picky and a mug will suffice
Favorite childhood birthday party? i don't think I ever had one, though for my last birthday, my husband took me to Protea Cottage for Afternoon Tea. I even had a birthday cake in a tea cup!
Favorite type of scone and jam? Regular butter scones and devonshire cream is my favorite
If you use candles, what is your favorite scent? Lavender
If you could choose 3 people to have 'tea' with, who would they be and why? (famous or not, living or dead). Oscar Wilde, Huey P Long, and Thom Hartmann. Because that would be the most literal and interesting tea party ever conceived
You've been invited to a tea party, what 'props' will you wear (formal or casual)? A nice knee length tweed skirt and sensible shoes
Any allergies/preferences you have or are willing to admit to? I have a marked preference for lavender
- Anything we missed that you want your pal to know? I love lavender and I am a sock knitter. We are moving to Alabama this winter and I am in school getting a degree in Education, though my previous degree was in Literature. I love anything that has to do with Professor Snape or Slytherin house, even though I keep getting sorted into Ravenclaw!!! I have three kids, 13, 8, and 1 and a giant black cat called Lucifer, whom I adore. He is the reason I collect anything with a black cat on it, from quilts to sock bags.
