1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer higher quality and/or natural fibers)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? Yes, I'm quite quickly becoming a yarn snob. (and I said it would NEVER happen to me!)
2. Do you spin? Crochet? Neither, But I have all the trappings (hooks, instructions) to learn crochet once I put my mind to it.
3. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in? I use a clear, plastic envelope, which works OK. I should get a proper needle holder, but most of them are too long since I mostly use the 10" needles.
4. How long have you been knitting? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced? I guess I am probably only "intermediate beginner". There are MANY skills I need to learn: cables, intarsia, fair isle....
5. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list? Yes: Amazon Wish List
6. What's your favorite scent? (for candles, bath products etc.) Orange or citrus. Fruity or food-like scents - NOTHING FLORAL
7. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favorite candy? I sure do have a sweet tooth - but I can only eat Sugar Free!
8. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? I like painting, I'm working on some painted knitting needles now. It's not going too well though - lol! I also make my own stitch markers.
9. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD) Mostly oldies and 80s metal - yes, all MP3 compatible.
10. What's your favorite color? Or--do you have a color family/season/palette you prefer? Any colors you just can't stand? Blues/Greens and Pinks/Oranges are faves, also red. I'm not too big on neutrals.
11. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets? I live alone and still like it quite a bit! No pets :(
12. Do you wear scarves, hats, mittens or ponchos? Yes, yes, yes, and NO (to the poncho!!)
13. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? I don't have a favorite, as long as it's natural.
14. What fibers do you absolutely *not* like? Acrylic (most of them anyway) I find I don't like anything with bits and pieces hanging hanging off or sticking out.
15. What is/are your current knitting obsession/s? Don't really have a specific obsession
