SP 10 Questionairre

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?
I love merino, alpaca and cashmere. I do not care for any wool that is scratchy or most acrylic (particularly the squeaky kind).
2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?
I keep my needles in a zippered case that a set of sheets came in. Its stylish, really.
3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced?
I have been knitting for three years. I am self taught although I have taken some classes since learning. I would consider myself to be intermediate.
4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?
Yes, I have an Amazon wishlist.
5. What's your favorite scent?
I love citrus scents. Orange or Lemon.
6. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favorite candy?
Yes. I love milk chocolate (does that count as a favorite candy).
7. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Do you spin?
I don't really do any other crafts, although my sister spins and I get to play with the yarn she makes.
8. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)
I listen to just about any kind of music, but I don't care much for rap. I can play MP3s on my computer and my son has an Ipod that I can borrow when I want (plus he listens to a lot of the same type of music I do). By any kind of music I mean I have the range from Gregorian Chants to Garange Band to Classical to Alternative to Big Hair Bands.
9. What's your favorite color(s)? Any colors you just can't stand?
I love blues, purples and reds. The only color I can't stand is yellow or anything with a yellow cast to it.

Actively, a lace scarf, sweater for my son, three scarves, husband's sweater, hat and stole for my sister.
14. Do you like to receive handmade gifts?
Yes, very much.
15. Do you prefer straight or circular needles? Bamboo, aluminum, plastic?

16. Do you own a yarn winder and/or swift?
Yes both.
