#1 Fingerless or Mittens or Gloves?
I love the idea of a nice warm pair of mittens, but I actually prefer to wear gloves - just more practical for me. But when it comes to the knitting... fingerless. And fingerless are great for over air conditioned offices in the summer. I hate it when my hands freeze when I'm trying to work.
#2 A favorite hand lotion:
Lubriderm. I suffer from serious winter skin (though it's not so bad now with the electric baseboards), so a good lotion is a must. I'd love to get something scented, but I also have sensitive skin, so no pretty scents for me.
#3 When is the last time you wore rubber gloves?
When I used to pierce ears in my job at Claire's (about 15 years ago). I should wear them for dyeing yarn, but I absolutely hate wearing gloves (unless it's cold out and they are knitted). I am very tactile, and if I can't feel things, it drives me batty.
#4 Do you put on makeup with tools or your fingers?
I don't wear alot of make-up - just mascara and eye shadow. I have a couple of eye shadow tins that don't have brushes, so I use fingers for those ones. I also have some cream eye shadows, and I find they go on best with fingers.
#5 Bar soap or liquid or foam?
Liquid soap in the kitchen (because it's hands only), but for the bath, it's bar. Again, because of my sensitivity, I have to be very careful. It's usually Dove unscented, but the lovely Araignee gifted me some of her beautiful handmade soaps... and happily, they don't bother my skin a bit!
#6 Where do you keep hand sanitizer?
I've never really bothered with hand sanitizer. Dave has some because he deals with icky, cootie-filled kids... but that's about the extent of our use.
#7 Someone whose hand you wish you could hold again?
A couple of old cats...Kobi (a Tuxie boy with even more catitude than Tux) and Monkey (the sweetest little orange tabby-girl who ever lived) Both have been gone for a long time, (Kobi 12 years, Monkey, about 15) but I still miss them.
#8 Favorite pattern for the hands:
So hard to pick just one.... here are a few
