Secret Pal 11 Questionere

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?

I love alpaca and wool, some cottons, and silk.  Basically anything natural.  I'm not a big fan of acryllic, but if it's blended with something I love it, but I can't stand mohair, it makes me break out.

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?

I use a vase, but I'd like something a bit more organized,  I could make it myself, but honestly, I'm lazy.

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 about 8 years.  My Dad taught me to knit because I was in a play where I needed to knit on stage.  I'd say I'm an intermediate knitter, working on becoming advanced.

4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?

I don't but maybe I should work on that...

5. What's your favorite scent?

Lavender and rose, sometimes I'm a girly girl, but I also really like deep musky smells like Amor Amor by Cacheral.

6. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favorite candy?

Not so much a sweet tooth, but I'd say my favorite candy is Resees Cups.

7. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Do you spin?

I'm a big sewer, I'm learning to spin, now that I'm back from Canada I'm going to fix up my wheel.  But I also do lots of do it yourself stuff, I can't even think of them all.

8. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)

I like punk, jazz, blues, swing, ska, rockabilly, psychobilly, and some hard rock and metal.  And yes I'm all over the MP3s.

9. What's your favorite color(s)? Any colors you just can't stand?

My favorites are black, red, purple, and green, I wouldn't say there are any colors I just can't stand.

10. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets?

I have 1 dog, and maybe getting 2 more if my parents move, but we'll see.  I live with 4 roommates for now, until I move to Chicago, at which point I have no idea what my situation will me.

11. Do you wear scarves, hats, mittens or ponchos?

I wear hats and scarves, I want to wear more mittens but I think that will have to wait until I move to Chicago.

I love to knit sweaters, and wierd small things.

Right now I'm working on a blanket and a sweater and who knows what else.
