SP10 Questionnaire!!

Once again, I'm hostessing and participating in SP! I hope these answers help my pal! If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask!

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?
I love all things natural and soft! Acrylic has its place, but I don't use it often.

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?
my straights are in a roll that my SP7 made for me, my circs are in a zipper bag that my SP8 gave me, and my dpns are in another zipper bag my SP8 gave me. The ones that don't fit are in a drawer. And my KnitPicks Options are in their case.

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 when I was 5, and every so often would pick it up. After I had my daughter, I started up again and haven't put the needles down since!! I think I'm intermediate, but not afraid to try anything!

4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?
I do! It's on the side bar.

5. What's your favorite scent?
lavendar, vanilla, and other florals. I really don't like musky scents.

6. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favorite candy?
Yup!! I love milk chocolates, and orange chocolates, Twizzlers, starburst and sweet tarts are also faves of mine.

7. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Do you spin?
I scrapbook, stamp cards, make beaded jewelry, quilt, spin, am getting into dyeing yarn, and I love photography

8. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)
I have an ibook and an ipod, so I'm good with MP3s!

9. What's your favorite color(s)? Any colors you just can't stand?
Purple and blue are my 2 faves. Then comes green, pink and reds. I really don't like bright yellow or orange. But I love a lighter yellow together with blue or purple.

10. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets?
Married, with a 3 year old daughter, and 2 cats.

11. Do you wear scarves, hats, mittens or ponchos?
scarves, hats and mittens I use constantly! I don't have any ponchos.

socks, and things for my 3 year old daughter

13. What are you knitting right now?
