SP14 Questionnaire

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like? I love alpaca or alpaca blends, or pretty much any wool, cotton, bamboo, and I like to experiment with some of the weirder fibers. I'm not a big fan of acrylic but I do use it occasionally for things that I might need to wash.

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in? I have a needle case and a makeshift container for hooks.

3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced? I first learned to knit quite a while ago, maybe 5 or 6 years ago from a friend who was luckily also left-handed. I would consider myself to be advanced just because I've been able to complete big projects and little ones.

4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list? Yes! Right here.

5. What's your favorite scent? I love anything citrus.

6. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favorite candy? I have a huge sweet tooth. If I have to pick a favorite, which is hard because I've never met a candy I didn't like, I guess I'd pick Starburst.

7. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Do you spin? I do spin but I am just a beginner and use a spindle. I also sew and like to draw and paint and make scrapbook type stuff.

8. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD) Yes I can play MP3s, and my favorite bands are Muse, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Most of the music I like is indie or alternative.

9. What's your favorite color(s)? Any colors you just can't stand? I like bright colors, my favorite right now would have to be anything in the blue family. I'm not a big fan of neutrals.

10. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets? I have a dog, two cats, and a bunny, who are my roomies.

11. Do you wear scarves, hats, mittens or ponchos? Yes to the first three.

12. What is/are your favorite item/s to knit? I LOVE socks. I lose patience with big projects sometimes.

13. What are you knitting right now? Right now I am finishing a granny square throw to brighten up my couch/living room.

14. Do you like to receive handmade gifts? Yes.

15. Do you prefer straight or circular needles? Bamboo, aluminum, plastic? I think I have straight and circular needles in most sizes but I like bamboo the most. However I usually use aluminum because they're easier to find around here. I guess I don't have a preference between straight or circular.

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

17. How old is your oldest UFO? I try to unwind things after a few years of not wanting to finish them.. but there probably is something at least a few years old.

18. What is your favorite holiday? What winter holiday do you observe? Christmas is probably my favorite with Halloween in a close second.

19. Is there anything that you collect? Anything with swallows (as in birds) especially jewelry or clothing.

20. Any books, yarns, needles or patterns out there you are dying to get your hands on? What knitting magazine subscriptions do you have? I don't get any magazines at the moment. There are a few knitting books on my Amazon wishlist that I have been wanting.

21. Are there any new techniques you'd like to learn? I would like to learn how to make more clothing because I've only made a few items, a cardigan, a vest, and a big shrug so far.

22. Are you a sock knitter? What are your foot measurements? I am a sock knitter. My feet are a size 8.5, are 9 inches long and of normal width.

23. When is your birthday? Feb 20th.

24. Are you on Ravelry? If so, what's your ID? blasehurri
