Here are the questions she sent me:
1. What is your favorite food? (I'm asking everyone this because I find it very interesting).
If we are talking going out to restaurants type food then I would have to say British Indian food, but not too spicy - I find if it is burning my mouth then I can't taste it. Salt Lake Indian food is OK too, very tasty but in a different way. If we are talking preparing at home food then you can't beat a Sunday roast with roast potatoes, yorkshire pud etc. If we are talking about special treats then dark chocolate would be highest on a list of mostly chocolate favourites.
2. What is the most disgusting thing you've ever eaten?
If you were to ask my sons this question they would any say any vegetable, but especially mushrooms they hate vegetables. I don't know that I have ever eaten anything that would be generally considered as particularly disgusting, like Bear Grylls eating termites or snake straight from the desert or jungle on one of his survival adventures. I remember in year 4 or 5 (3rd or 4th grade) at school for months we were made to eat potatoes that tasted really bad because they had been accidentally sprayed with some horrible chemical - we were never told what it was but it was vile and I am sure not good for us. As far as I know no one seems to have suffered any long term effects, thank goodness.
3. What is your very favorite knitting object (knitting by yourself or someone else) and why?
At the moment my favourite thing that I have made is Lucy's Wedding stole, a) because it was for such a special occasion b) because I designed it and it actually turned out really well. My favourite thing that someone else has made is the scarf Lucy made for me last year. Despite not having knitted for long she was totally undaunted by the lacy pattern and she chose gorgeous Noro yarn in great colours.
4. Who taught you to knit? How old were you?
My paternal Grandmother taught me to knit when I was 7. I used to spend a week with my grandparents every summer and we used to do loads of crafty things together. Those weeks are some of my most precious childhood memories.
5. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
I have been lucky enough to visit quite a few different countries in my life, but of the places I haven't been to I would most like to visit Japan because I love oriental design and because it is so completely different culturally from anywhere else.
I hope you like my answers!
