My answers:

I can knit socks by heart if they are plain vanilla!  This is because I ‘d say over 50% of my knitting life has been socks.  And I’m not stoppin now!

Of course Id like yarn for Christmas!
Who comes up with these questions? Oh yeah, me

I shoveled Wisconsin snow yesterday.  And let me just say Lake Geneva snowflakes are much better than Illinois snowflakes.

I cannot make a package bow for the life of me.

I like to buy used books.

I saw a Living Nativity in our town’s night parade on Saturday.  Mary bundle that baby up, it needed a hat!

Yes, my sister sent us homebaked cookies one year.  Too bad she doesnt read the blog. It was one of the funnest gifts ever. I’m sending her some gingerbread and I’m packing it in Coconut shreds.

My toes were freezing at the Night Parade Saturday.  Note to self, clogs are not warm enough up here.  Buy boots.

Yes, I love when holidays collide.

Yes, I Love to bring in the mail in December and see everyone’s lovely cards and photos.

  8. A very fun post…I may “borrow” a few questions…to answer: nope, I cannot knit by heart; yes, I’ve worn a red nose and antlers when I was a working librarian for a pre-school storytime and when I was in 5th grade, I was Mary in our Christmas play…not outside but in a nativity scene…
    Cheers~
