Knitters Virtual Vacation Swap Questionnaire

1. If you could visit any state in the US, which would it be and why?

Florida. Palm trees, warm breezes and I miss living there.

2. If you could visit any country in the world, other than your own, which would it be and why?

Russia. I studied Soviet Political Systems and Russian history as an undergrad and am fascinated.

3. Have you ever driven across several states/providence/countries? Yes. Virginia to Missouri, Virginia to Maine and Virginia to Florida.

4. Have you ever visited someplace you consider exotic? Where was it? Malta. It's a small island nation in the Mediterranean. One day I hope to return.

5. What was your favorite "travel" vacation? Why?

That one is hard to choose but last year my family went to Maine for a week to stay at our neighbors' summer home and loved it. Maine is captivating. One day we hope to return and really explore it.

6. Have you ever played tourist in your own home city/state (if international, country)? Explain.

Not for a long time. I've lived here 19 of the last 22 years and prefer to stay away from the tourists.

Definitely a beach comber.

acrylic. yuck.

When I go to the beach next week I'm taking sock stuff. Socks are my latest obsession.

I paint glass and sew. This summer I am making curtains for my house.

13. Are you allergic to anything? (Yarn wise or treat wise)


14. What is your favorite color? Least Favorite?

Red. Red should be considered a neutral. I'm not too crazy about purple.

15. Sweet or Savory (Treat not personality)? both!

16. Anything else we are forgetting to ask that you think your partner desperately needs to know?

I can't think of anything.

I love in your about me you wrote "Mom to Thing one and Thing two." I sometimes say that about my girls

I have never "met" anyone who has been to Malta and I know travelers. That is different. I hope you were there for a happy occasion.
