Monday Meme on Wednesday

Another  meme from Kathy B

#1 Write on the pattern you are using or keep it clean as a whistle?
If I need to, I write on them. Most of my patterns are electronic versions, so I can just print out a new one whenever I want. My book patterns I keep clean though.
#2 Trick for Keeping track of a plain round or a complicated round?
For colourwork, I find highlighting as I go helps a lot.
#3 You've decided you cannot stand the yarn you are working with...... you: Carry on.  You liked it enough to buy it after all or Put it in the donation pile, feeling a bit guilty that someone is getting yarn you don't even like.  Or return it. 
If I really don't like a yarn, I try to find someone else who will enjoy it. Just because I don't like it doesn't mean it's bad - just not to my taste. It will always suit someone else.
#4 What is your current favorite television show to knit during?  I have to knit to things I've seen already. If it's new, I don't want to miss anything. Lately I've been rewatching Game of Thrones and The Last Kingdom.
#5 How do you like your coffee?
In the garbage. I hate coffee.
#6 How many pairs of hand knitted socks do you rotate wearing currently?   At last count, my sock drawer was around 35 pairs, though it's definitely been added to since then - I'm probably close to 40.
 #7 You are taking a road trip.  Do you listen to the local radio stations on the way or your own music?  Sadly, the local radio stations. My car CD player stopped working early last year. The radio stations are good around here so it's not too bad, but once I get out of range... it's really a crap shoot.
#8 Do you bring your own grocery bags to the store?   I really like the idea of bringing my own bags. I even bought several of the heavy duty reusable ones years ago... but now they are all filled with yarn. Besides, the grocery store ones are great for collecting cat poop.
#9 What wildlife have you seen that is considered rare? In the wild? I've seen a Golden Eagle. I was driving to my grandparents and he was just chillin' on the side of the road. 
When I was about 12 years old, I went to Girl Guide camp and they had an exotic animal show come. I got to go on stage and cuddle with a three-month old tiger. One of my best childhood memories.
#10 Someone just gave your family plane tickets to anywhere in the US for next week.  Where will you take them ?   Oooh -that's a tough decisions. Somewhere warm... maybe go visit Dee in Florida... I'd really like to go on one of her alligator hikes!

And now... a word from our sponsor
 "Spring comes tomorrow..... right?"

Love that kitty in the snow photo! I know our poor outdoor kitties have had enough of it too.

Snow covered Rocky Road, my favourite flavour!

Love your answers thank you for sharing. I like what you said about how the yarn could be right for someone else, or something else. It really depends on what you didn't like about it, doesn't it. You almost broke my heart over the coffee (not really), but you like Game of Thrones and Dee and have beautiful cats so what's not to love? I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one that has yarn in reusable grocery bags. hehe.
