Please join in.  The definition of a MEME is that it catches on....did you know?

My answers: 
I love to buy online. I think it is The thrill of waiting for it in the mail and the huge options.

Button placement and sewing them on....dread it. 

Pompom for the kids.  It just makes it so dang cute.

Electric blanket for the afternoon knitting when My bones are chilled through in this old house.

Travel: I love taking the tour.  Fireman does not.
It is a money thing for him.  I think our wild horse tour in the OBX convinced him of the value however.  

2016 Vacation plans: in the works

My outdoor photos are always ten times better than my indoor photos.

Cowl over scarf everytime.   Unless it is a Seamans scarf it is just too bulky.  For warmth, however, I'd pick the scarf over the cowl.

No LYS so almost all yarn shopping is done online
Weaving ends is a dreaded activity
Definitely NO pom pons
Down blanket - so cozy
I love to explore on my own whenever I can
Outdoor photos are much easier to take
Cowls are preferred over scarves - easier to manage and harder to lose

Awww, that little one is a cutie. I wanna squeeze her baby chubb cheeks. Your sister did a great job on that hat.
1. Because I am not the CFO here, I've cut down on yarn spending in which I only buy at STITCHES and during my birthday month. So I guess I'll have to say in-store.
2. I'm gonna choose button placement because I am horrible at resewing on buttons on my shirts and coats.
3. Pompoms are a MUST.
4. Down.
5. I can only say discovering on our own for now as we've only traveled CA local and not across the pond yet.
6. Oh boy, that hasn't even passed from our lips yet.
7. I tend to take photos outdoors now that we've moved b/c the scenery is more interesting.
8. I think scarf b/c I'd wear my Christmas gift scarf from my bro almost every day when we were in SF and in the house, I wear my infinity scarves all the time. My neck's sensitive and I get a stiff neck easily.

1. I'm an online junkie too. I used to be a mail order junkie back in the day.
2. I'm heming and hawing about sewing the buttons on Son's cardi right now. Hate the idea.
3. Love pom poms.
4. No electric, no down-ah choo. An Ikea duvet that is filled with polyester batting.
5. On my own.
6. No plans.
7. Outdoors
8. Cowl. I never know what to do with a scarf.

I love real stores and if I love a wool then I buy online only after seeing it in person. We have no plans as of yet for a vacation but to visit our daughter. I LOVE house tours and my husband HATES them. I try to get one a year in :)

I love to shop online, don't mind weaving in ends at all. Wouldn't take a tour and travel always includes going to visit family.
