Secret Pal-laloooza

Thank you Secret Pal!!!

This lovely face mask, yummy tea medley and cute-as-a-button pincushion follow a copy of the fabulous "One Skein." How spoiled am I?

To make this an all-Secret Pal, all the time post, here's my answers to the pal hostess questions:

1. What is your favorite season?

Not summer. Definitely not summer.

I love the fall. September and October rock. Yesterday, I stood in front of my closet and looked longingly at all the sweaters I can't even think of pulling out until then (we're on our 6th day in a row of 100-plus degrees).

2. Where is or would be your favorite place in the world to take a vacation?

I love to travel, so it's hard to pick a favorite. I really, really liked my recent trip to Kyoto, Japan. But I also really loved my trip last weekend into the Sawtooth Mountains.

3. If you could have any job in the world and not worry about finances (everything would be taken care of), which means you'd be doing something you actually like, what would it be?

Isn't this the million dollar question? I didn't know what I wanted to be when I grew up when I was a kid and I still don't.

So I'm going to say the healthy thing: Journalist (which is what I do to pay the bills now).

4. What is your favorite project to knit or crochet?

Hmmmm. Hard to decide. I like socks (interesting but small). I also like to make sweaters. The monotony is soothing.

I also enjoy making washcloths, and after reading my new Mason-Dixon book, blankets may even make the list.

I just like to make stuff.

5. What is your favorite food - whether it be a main dish, dessert, snack, whatever?

Does espresso count as food?

If not, cheese.

6. What is your favorite way to relax and unwind?

You mean besides knitting? I love, love to read. I love to watch movies. And I love to hike. There's nothing that recharges me more than spending six hours on a dusty trail with gorgeous vistas.
