UK Swap Questionnaire..the rest of it!

Part Two: Your Favourites
What is your favourite colour?

Hmmm, difficult. I love greens, mainly lighter, brighter ones also pinks, more muted ones. I also love blues, soft ones and purples but not really lilac. I suppose I love mid tone gentle hues of most colours.

What is your least favourite colour?

I'm not keen on orange or wine/burgundy colours, or too strong colours. Not keen on yellow, although I do love a creamy yellow.

What scents/smells do you like? What don’t you like?

I love vanilla and cinnamony smells, warm cosy wintery smells. The smell of sweet baking. Also fresh citrusy smells. I'm not keen on flowery smells, although I do like rose.

How do you like to pamper yourself? (bubble bath, hand creams, massage, manicure)

Yea, any of those!!! I love to be stroked and pampered... the more cream the better! Especially my hands and feet!

What goodies to you like to eat? (chocolate, biscuits, sweets,crisps etc)
Yea, any of those too!!!!! I'm a Taurean, so pampering and eating and loving nice things are my core essence!!!! I love Cadburys the most, and cheese knik knax which you can only get in South African shops are my top faves! I don't like dark chocolate at all or Turkish delight, or wafery things.

Do you prefer tea or coffee while you knit? Any particular kind?

I don't really drink tea and coffee. Sometimes a nice skinny decaff cappuccino or a straight hot chocolate.

Do you listen to/watch anything while you knit? (TVshow-Along, movies, music, podcasts, audiobooks)
I normally watch tv or I knit in the garden.

Part Three: About you, Living & Past-times
If you were a specific kind of yarn, which brand and kind of yarn would you be (and why)?
I would be alpaca. I'm soft and I love to be touched but if you stretch me too far I become nasty! I also come in a range of lovely colours!!! And in a variety of thicknesses!!!

Where do you live in the UK? (General idea not address)

Have you always lived here, or did you grow up somewhere else?
I grew up in South Africa. In Amanzimtoti.

What is your favourite place in the UK?
Apart from my garden on a sunny day, I would say anywhere that involved the beach, hot sun, comfy sun beds and a good book.

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I'd like to visit the Cook Islands in the South Pacific.

What other hobbies do you have?
Gardening, reading, cooking, writing, exercise, cars

Part Four: The Theme

I love this picture. It's my garden and I love the feeling of it, and the colours, greens, pinks and purples and the blue (that you can't see) that is shining above all of this and making it grow. I planted my garden too from a bare patch of earth and I love the feeling of knowing that everything growing in it is because I put it there. Apart from the bloody willow tree that self seeded itself and I can't get rid of!!

Final Part:
Any allergies/preferences (fiber-wise or treat-wise)?

I am proper (!)vegetarian, so nothing edible wise made from animal or fish products. But I do knit with animal fibres.
Anything we missed that you’d like your partner to know?
I'll let you know!!!

I did not know you were raised in S.Africa!

And a vegetarian! :o) At least you are not completely hardcore and still knit with animal fibers.

My husband says that 'Toti is very close to where he grew up, on the Durban Berea. Love your alpaca yarn description.
