Knitter's Coffee Swap 3

Yeah, I'm in the Knitter's Coffee Swap 3 - it is perfect timing as my others will be over with and I'll be able to shop for yarny goodness at Rhinebeck. It's the last that I'm planning to do before the holidays.

here's my questionnaire....

1. Whole bean or ground?
I prefer whole bean, but don’t currently have a grinder – so until I replace mine it’s all ground.

2. Fully-loaded or decaf?
Fully-loaded, please – I wouldn’t make it through the morning otherwise.

3. Regular or flavored?
I like some flavored – French vanilla or hazelnut – nothing to crazy or fruity please.

4. How do you drink your coffee?
With cream & sugar

5. Favorite coffee ever?
If I had to pick just one – it’s Dunkin Donuts – French vanilla iced coffee – with skim milk and sugar.

6. Are you fussy about your coffee or will any old bean do?
I’m not too fussy – I do like decent coffee – since I think the typical grocery store version tastes burnt and not very rich.

7. Favorite treats to have with your coffee?
Donuts/Bagels – really bad need to cut back on those. Seriously though, I tend to limit coffee to breakfast and sometimes after dinner - - so I’ll drink it with just about anything.

8. Anything else about your coffee preferences?

Not that I can think of --- if you have questions just ask.

9. Yarn/fiber you love?
EVERYTHING – just kidding, but pretty close. I love anything soft, sock yarn is my current addiction, that and tweed – I’m really lusting over tweed. I think it's just that time of year.

10. Yarn/fiber you hate?
Not a big fan of fake acrylics – i.e. feathers, fun fur, etc. It has it’s place, but not really my thing.

11. What's on your needles?
See my Ravelry notebook if you can for the most info (kamcole)…. Pair of monkey socks in Dream in Color, Secret of the Stole out of Plucky Knitter laceweight, Bacardi sweater out of RYC Cashsoft, Interweave read in bed shrug out of GGH.

12. Favorite colors?
Love color – just about all except florescent colors. Really like jewel tones, neutrals, autumn colors (crimson, rich oranges, browns, teals, etc.), Pinks, greens, blues, etc.

13. Allergies?
Only to molds and dusts, nothing to worry about.

14. Anything you really love, really don't like, or just need to get off your chest?
Addicted to knitting books, yarn and Addi-Needles, but what knitter isn’t. LOL

Thanks! I'm really looking forward to the swap.

Perhaps - I can get to a Romantic Knit project - we'll see. I've got to try and finish a variety of things for other people before the holidays let alone something for myself... LOL... though the secret of the stole and the monkey socks are for me... so who knows.
