Oh a loverly mug please
7.Describe your perfect cup, not just the coffee, but how would you enjoy it?

I love buttercream yellow, sage, eggplant, rich jewel tones and also greens. Probably won't find bright pinks, purples or neon colors

Can't say that I have any I detest. There are just certain ones for certain projects. Right now I am trying to add more 40" circulars to my collection as I am doing more and more Magic Loop.
6.Are there any sort of knitting notions that you do not need?
No really, I can use about anything, because I am always misplacing things.
7.You walk into a yarn store with just enough money for two skeins of yarn.. what do you buy?

Not yet.. it's trying though..

Sunshine, opening the windows, hanging out the laundry, flowers coming up.. opening up the lake cottage.
4.Gorgeous day tomorrow, sunny 65 degrees, how do you spend your day?
I open up the windows and wash the bedding and hang it outside to dry, start messing around in my garden, refill the bird feeders and sit on my swing and drink coffee and knit!!
5.The day after that is cooler and rainy. How does that affect your mood and what do you do?
I am glad I got done what I did on the nice day... Then I tackle my craft room which is a mess and get some order to my yarn.. then I knit with some coffee while I look out at my birdfeeders.
