How do you feel about knitted stuff?
I liked knitted stuff. I like all of it, but I am really impressed by the fancy stuff.
What types of things do you like to wear?
I'm into beer. How 'bout you?
I like beer as well. I do not like IPAs. I dark beer. I don't really drink alcohol otherwise.
How do you feel about caramel?
Salt or no?
With chocolate or without?
Yes. Yes to all of it.
Would you be interested in home made food items?
- garlic dill pickles
- blackberry jam
- dried honey crisp apples
- applesauce (with or without red hots)
- elderberry syrup (with honey and apple cider vinegar - great for immune boosting)
- honey from our bees
- rose petal liquor (made with our own rose petals and everclear but diluted down a bit so it doesn't knock you over)
- baked goods of your choice, what do you like or dislike?
I don't like applesauce but all the rest of it sounds good!
Would you be interested in project bags/pouches? I usually make flat bottom round pouches with a pocket inside and a drawstring. Possibility of embroidery if we still have the huge commercial machine.
Could be fun!
And to go along with the previous knitting question...
Are you allergic to any fiber or do you know what kind of yarn you prefer? (merino, merino cashmere, merino cashmere silk, 100% silk, 100% cashmere, merino nylon, BFL, BFL silk, etc. Or do you like acrylic?)
No allergies that I know of. I prefer softer when it comes to stuff that touches my skin.
Would you want a quilted pot holder?
Do you have any prefered flavour of shortbread?
I didn't know it came in flavors!
What are you interested in from the recent BPAL and BPTP updates? (Lilith, Lunacy, etc.)

No, my cats eat all of my house plants.
Speaking of snarky, who's a fan of The Mincing Mockingbird?
I've never heard of them before. A quick Googling tells me that the magnets and stuff are hilarious though.
Do you decorate for Halloween all year? If not, what level of decor do you have for Halloween?
I have a couple things that I keep out all year. I don't have a ton of decorations up until this year I lived in a pretty small house.
Indoor/outdoor Halloween decorations? What do you do, and what would you prefer to receive?
What's your preferred Halloween decor style: classic/traditional (skulls, pumpkins, bats), kitchsy/cute, retro, elegant/Victorian, horror/macabre?
Cute, elegant, harvesty type stuff
What's your candy preference?
In my house. Haha, I have a bit of a sweet tooth. I like all chocolate except white. I like haribo gummies. I like interesting flavors and types of treats I might not have tried before.

I like pumpkin!
Is there anything you would like to get from Japan?
I was going to say everything, but then I remembered that Japan can get really weird.
Would you object to re-using of clean mailing materials?
Is there anything you'd particularly like to get from the UK?
I'd love stuff from the UK, but I'm drawing blank of specifics. Cadbury chocolate, since they took away the real stuff in the US.
I love socks. I've always been interested in sock dreams, but I have wide calves so I haven't made the plunge yet.
Anyone a nail polish fan? What colored interest you?
I'm not huge into it, but I do have some around and I usually buy Zoya when I do. I'd love some autumnal colors!
Would you like some hair falls? I can make a single (ponytail) or double (for pigtails). Short, long, types of yarns, ribbons? Extra things (buttons, beads, wire wraps? Colors/color combinations? Stuff to avoid?
They are neat looking, but not for me, I think.
Do you have an Etsy wish list, and if so, what's your user name there?
I do, I haven't put anything on it in a while though. SadariEvenstar there as well.
Tokyo Milk? Yea or Nay?
Never heard of them. I will google them later and take a look.
would you like notebooks or journals? Utilitarian or fancy? Lined or blank? Tell me of your stationery lustings.
I like them. I prefer unlined, my hand writing is large and messy. Pretty paper is always fun.
If you are ok with knitted things, what colors do you like?
If striping, what two (or more) colors together?
If you want yarn, what colors do you want?
--- A color palette would be lovely if you use Pinterest. Or just want to post palette photos in your blog.
I like dark reds, warm browns. Soft greens and blues. No neon.
Are you interested in fabric? Again, what colors, what themes, etc.
No thank you.
What are your tea and/or coffee preferences? Loose leaf / whole bean or bagged / ground? Do you have a favorite type? Flavor? Retailer?
No coffee, at all. Not even coffee flavored candy. I really don't like coffee.
I drink lots of tea. I prefer loose. I mostly drink black teas or flavored black teas, but I like green and white as well. I love a good oolong or jasmine tea. I dislike rooibos and herbal teas. I also don't like hibiscus and rosehips. Chai is good.
If you could receive one handmade item - everything from knitted or crocheted gloves and scarves to sewn bags to fanart or original art, what would you prefer?
Art would be amazing. I don't have much hanging on my walls.
What are your favorite fandoms, if any?
Harry Potter, Dr.Who, LOTR, a bunch of embarrassing animes that you are welcome to ask me about,
Skincare- do you use a particular routine? What products would you absolutely not use?
Cetaphil in the shower, Alba Botanica Hawaiian, Aloe & Green Tea Oil-Free Moisturizer. My skin is pretty tempermental so I try to leave it alone. I don't even wear makeup.
Paintbox soapworks hot process. Cocoa pink shampoo/conditioner
BPTP products? Pre-owned okay?
Hair gloss is good. I don't use much bath oil. I use a lot of atmos. Preowned is fine.
Essential oils and aromatherapy oils- yay, or nay?
Twilight Alchemy Lab oils?
Never tried them, but I would like to.
Authors - Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter. Heard of them? Love them, hate them, or eh?
Never heard of them.
Knitted things. Specifically scarves/cowls and shawls.....grabby hands or not? Favorite colors? Are you allergic or sensitive to any textiles, ie wools, cashmere, nylon, metallic threads, mohair, alpaca? Knitted washcloths? For the kitchen or for the bath? And again, colors??
Scarves and shawls would be amazing. I don't really know much about textiles. I like things soft. Wash clothes would probably not get used.
Candles or wax melts/wax tarts?
I like candles but allergies prevent me from using them most of the time. I've never tried wax melts.
The second part of the Haus of Gloi update is live tomorrow (the 25th)- is there anything you're interested in?
I've never tried them. I'd be open to trying them though.
I'm going to the NY Renaissance Faire tomorrow- anything you'd like me to look for?
I've only been to a Ren Faire once and I'm not really sure what kinds of things you would find there.
