Falling For Ewe Autumn Yarn Swap Questionnaire

Yes, it's that time again......another swap is in the works:

  1. Do you knit or crochet? Right now, I knit only.
  2. How long have you been at your craft? Less than one year
  3. Do you spin? NOPE
  4. Are there any other crafts that you participate in? I do enjoy scrapbooking, but find that I only get a chance to do it every couple of months. I’d rather be fondling my yarn stash!
  5. What are your favorite yarns/fibers? I love sock yarns….BFL and Bamboo blends are some of my favorites.
  6. What are your LEAST favorite yarns/fibers? I can’t handle mohairs, acrylics or scratchy wools……they make me breakout in hives (I have a hypersensitivity)
  7. Are there any types/brands of yarn that you are dying to work with but haven’t gotten a chance? POSH yarn….Three Irish Girls….Wollmeise…Alchemy
  8. What are your favorite types of projects to knit/crochet? I’ll consider anything. I have plans for lots of scarves, hats and fingerless gloves and mittens. Socks too….
  9. What are you currently working on? After lots of practice swatches, I am finally casting on my FIRST project—a pair of fingerless mittens. Anything you plan to start this autumn? I am planning a new scarf in a fall colorway.
  10. What are your favorite colors to work with? I’m a tropical color person…..I love turquoise, purple, blue-green, pinks, red, corals and neutrals like chocolate brown and charcoal grey.
  11. What colors do you NOT enjoy? I don’t like BRIGHT yellow, and I stay away from really pale pastels (as they wash me out, and make me look ill).
  12. Are their any knitting/crochet techniques that you would like to learn? I haven’t figured out increases & decreases yet, so that would be next on my agenda.
  13. Are you a sock knitter? Yes What are your foot measurements? I wear a size 10 shoe.
  14. Do you have a yarn winder and/or a swift? Neither, but would love either
  15. Where/how to you keep you needles/hooks? Right now I have a STUFFED to the gills folder to keep them in check, but I’ve outgrown it. I am collecting more circulars now, so I would like to get a separate way to organize these.
  16. Do you collect anything? Mary Englebreit, Bumblebees & Ladybugs….I also collect Tinkerbell items (mostly Christmas ornaments) and Vintage Hawaiian art & travel prints.
  17. What is your favorite type of music? It’s very varied, just about anything (but Rap music) Are you MP3 ready? Yes, I use iTunes.
