Coffee Swap 2

Hey Hey! Ho Ho! It's off to the tea shop I go!

I joined my first every swap on Tuesday and I'm so excited. It's the "Coffee Swap 2" organized by Knittymama. Although I don't drink coffee, she was generous enough to let a few of us tea drinkers (you know the other caffeine) in. I can't wait to go shopping for my partner and make a new friend. So here are the questions/answers for my partner. I've modified them to suit a tea drinker:

1. Whole loose leaf or bags? I prefer loose leaf tea. It usually has more flavor.

2. Fully-loaded (black) or herbal? No preference

3. Nutty or fruity flavored? No preference

4. How do you drink your tea? Blacks, usually with heavy cream and honey with an equal and or a syrup for added flavor. Herbals, usually just with honey or agave, an equal and maybe a splash of lemon juice.

5. Favorite tea ever? Almond Milk tea and Rose Tea from the ABC company.

6. Are you fussy about your tea or will any old leaf do? I'm not partial to assam, pekoe, rooibos, etc. I just like a good tasting tea.

7. Favorite treats to have with your tea? Shortbread cookies, chocolate or maple scones, english muffins, a good cake (no fruit), anything chocolate with nuts.

8. Anything else about your tea preferences? I prefer tea filters to infusers (probably because I've never had the chance to use an infuser).

9. Yarn/fiber you love? Alpaca or wool blended with silk (especially Rowan's Alpaca Silk), brightly colored mercerized cotton, other soft wools that can be felted. I also love the Amelie by GGH but surprise me!

10. Yarn/fiber you hate? ACKrylic (unless blending with another more dominant fiber), fun furs, anything splitty.

11. What's on your needles? Uhh, see 2 posts down. LOL

12. Favorite colors? Black, purples/lavenders, yellow yellow and more yellow, reds and greens.

13. Allergies? None that I know of.

14. Anything you really love, really don't like, or just need to get off your chest? I can't wait to get started!
