SP10 bandwagon

7 02 2007

I just had to do it this time around.  It was a blast the first time and since I told myself I would limit yarn purchases to $20 a month, it works with SP10 because I just take that $20 and spend it on someone else.  😀


1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?
 I love natural fibers and sock yarns.  Sock yarn is my friend.  😀  I’d prefer no acrylic yarn (because I’m practically swimming in the stuff already).

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?
 Circulars are stored in the containers they came in.  My sock DPNS are in a little tubey thing I got for SP8, and everything else is in those generic needle holders.

3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced?
 3 years knitting, completely self taught.  I condsider myself intermediate to advanced.

4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?
 I have one on Kaboodle, and I like to add yarn and roving when I get bored.  😀

5. What’s your favorite scent?
 No real favorite.  I love tropical kinda things, don’t like the real flowery stuff.

6. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favorite candy?
 Love chocolate… who doesn’t?

7. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Do you spin?
 I spin, and crochet. I want to learn to quilt, sew and weave but I don’t have room for those hobbies.  lol.

8. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)
 Country music. Of course Mp3s work!

9. What’s your favorite color(s)? Any colors you just can’t stand?
 It changes depending on my mood and the weather. Nothing I hate though. I love variety.  Reds, pinks, and purples will always be my favs but I love the bright burn your eyes out neons too.

10. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets?
 College student, living with parents.  I have a boyfriend, two cats, fish…

11. Do you wear scarves, hats, mittens or ponchos?
 Yes, no (but I really need one), again… no (but I’m knitting a pair as fast as I can), and ponchos=no way.. they’re just not my style.

12. What is/are your favorite item/s to knit?
 Socks… lace…

13. What are you knitting right now?
 Socks… lace… mittens

14. Do you like to receive handmade gifts?

15. Do you prefer straight or circular needles? Bamboo, aluminum, plastic?
 circular, metal needles.  😀

16. Do you own a yarn winder and/or swift?
 Yes to the winder, no to the swift

17. How old is your oldest UFO?
 maybe last summer? Not too old.

18. What is your favorite holiday?

19. Is there anything that you collect?
 nope.. just yarn.  😀

20. Any books, yarns, needles or patterns out there you are dying to get your hands on? What knitting magazine subscriptions do you have?
 As far as books, and yarn, that’s all on my kaboodle list (it’s always growing). I subscribe to Interweave Knits.  I just let two other magazines expire cause they were too basic.

21. Are there any new techniques you’d like to learn?
 Not really.

22. Are you a sock knitter? What are your foot measurements?
 8.5 inches long, 9.5 inches around.

23. When is your birthday?
