Good Mail Day Swap: Surviving the Holidays

Good Mail Day Swap: Surviving the Holidays

MH and I took this pic when we were playing tourist in Boston after Rhinebeck. Such fun! On to the questions... (warning, I sure did get chatty)

Which holidays do you celebrate, if any?
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years! Any excuse to celebrate :)

What is your favorite holiday tradition?
My mom (and now I, this is why I learned to knit) makes handknit Christmas stockings for every kid in our family starting with my older cousin. Stocking stuffers are the best thing in my family, so many fun small things, and I always saved my stocking for the very last. Inevitably Santa bought more things than would fit in the stockings. Now, I'm having the most fun stuffing my little guy's stocking. We also collect ornaments each year and I love ornaments, decorations, candles, etc. that we pull out of the boxes from year to year.

For New Year's, are you a party animal or quiet night at home type?
Generally, we have a party (with all the kiddos) at our house. But, this year my Dad will be in town and has offered to keep the kid, so we might actually be party animals this year.

What drives you banana hammocks about the holidays? Tempting foods? Relatives? Shopping?
I'm probably one of those annoying people who loves everything about them. This year I am trying to not be so focused on the presents and focus more on spending time with the people I love. I'm also trying to teach the kiddo about giving, so we'll be adopting an angel to buy for and that sort of thing.

What's your "comfort" when getting "through" the holiday season? Crafting? Eating? Drinking? :o)
Baking and knitting! We do a lot of baking throughout the holidays, cookies of all kinds and chocolate dipped pretzels, etc. And, of course, the knitting can go with me anywhere so that's always helpful!

Holiday foods you like
I love turkey, dressing and cranberry sauce. I also like pumpkin pie but only with a ton of whipped cream.

Holiday foods you despise
I'm not big on pecan pie or on sweet potatoes made with marshmallows (don't know if that's a common holiday food or just in my family) :)

Foods you can't eat (allergies, etc.)
None, I am super lucky to be able to eat it all!

Favorite yarn(s)?
Let's see, I live in Houston, so I tend to gravitate toward blends that aren't too warm. I also like to make things for the kid in more easy care yarns. So, lately, I've been working with berocco vintage and comfort. But, really, I just love yarn. There aren't really any yarns I don't like other than fuzzy novelties and mohair.

Crafty pursuits - knit, crochet, spin, sew, quilt, any of these or others?
Um, all of the above. Dang, that's a bit nuts. Out of knit and crochet, I'm better at knitting but crocheting more and more to improve my skills. I spindle spin and sew and quilt as well. I went to the quilt show last week and all of the sudden have the embroidery bug, so there will be some of that, as well coming up!

Hobbies/pursuits/proclivities/passions (other than the aforementioned crafty ones, obviously)
I'm pretty sure my hobbies are all crafty. Oh, and I still consider myself a cyclist even though I don't ride as often anymore. The husband homebrews and I can, so there's that, too.

What do you do in life? (job, career, school, family, etc.)
I work for Ravelry as the Hostess with the Mostest and have a 3 year old son and a miniature schnauzer named T-bone.

Random favorites -- books, movies, tv, genres, ice cream flavors, time of day, etc.
I have a kindle and like to read, right now I'm finally reading the Sookie Stackhouse books (only on book 2). I regularly watch greys anatomy, crappy reality television, football and whatever the kiddo is watching. We just canceled cable so rely on Netflix and iTunes for extra tv. I like rich saturated colors, tend to gravitate toward teals and blues with the occasional pink, green and orange thrown in. I definitely have a sweet tooth and love chocolate (mostly milk over dark, but either one is fine) but I also like salty snacks. My favorite ice cream flavor is mocha almond fudge or Jeni's goat cheese & cherries.

crossing the delaware of handturkeys

as a family thanksgiving project my cousin had the idea for everyone to make hand turkeys, where you trace your hand then decorate it as if it were a turkey. every member in the family made one, or one was made for them if they weren't home, then they were strung up in my aunt's kitchen.
