I got accepted into the third knit & coffee swap! And so here is all the info:
Here are the questions and answers:
1. Whole bean or ground?
Ground. I don’t have a coffee grinder right now.
2. Fully-loaded or decaf?
Fully-loaded! Though I will drink decaf at night (with dessert).
3. Regular or flavored?
Mostly regular. I will try flavored coffees, but usually I find them too oily or something.
4. How do you drink your coffee?
Cream/milk and sugar.
5. Favorite coffee ever?
I got some at Starbucks one time that was from Ethiopia (I think) and that was the best coffee I EVER had. I wrote down the name, but then lost the piece of paper….
6. Are you fussy about your coffee or will any old bean do?
I’m a little bit fussy. I’m not fond of Maxwell House….. But I’m not above reheating it in the microwave (something a true coffee snob would nevah do).
7. Favorite treats to have with your coffee?
Cookies and biscuit-y things. Biscotti are a little too hard on my teeth, though.
8. Anything else about your coffee preferences?
I really like fair trade and organically grown coffee. I can no longer drink huge quantities of coffee like when I was younger, so I’m willing to pay a little more for a smaller amount of really good coffee that helps the growers.
9. Yarn/fiber you love?
Luxury yarns. I am especially into Rowan’s Cashsoft these days, and I’ve always wanted to try Noro’s Silk Garden.
10. Yarn/fiber you hate?
All acrylic cheap-o yarn. Scratchy wools.
11. What’s on your needles?
Hemlock ring lap robe, 3 pairs of mittens and a poncho
12. Favorite colors?
Blues and purples
I hate the smell of cigarette smoke, and I cannot tolerate mint.
14. Anything you really love, really don’t like, or just need to get off your chest?
I wish everyone would get over themselves and and sing! :o) I wish cashmere yarn were $2/50 g.
