COLORSWAP QUESTIONAIRE ANSWERED
I just realized after looking at Juli's blog, that I had not answered the questionaire for Ranee's Colorswap. Well, here are my answers!
1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer high-end/natural fibers)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? Or is it all the same to you? I am not a yarn snob, though I love the natural fibers. I use Red Heart in afghans and Lion Brand in various projects, too. I'm easy going and pretty much love everything except "ITCHY!" :)
2. Do you spin? Crochet? I do not spin yet, though I'd like to learn. Crochet is my first love. And I taught myself to knit back in 1998.
3. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? I love anything to do with paper and ephemera, origami, card-making, scrapbooking...Plus anything to do with threads and yarn such as sewing, cross-stitching, in addition to crocheting and knitting.
4. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? My favorite yarns to work with are soft yarns...anything soft! I love to work with cotton, too.
5. What fibers do you absolutely *not* like? Hmmm...can't think of any fibers I don't like. As long as it's not stiff, hard or itchy, I like it all!
6. What is/are your current knitting obsession/s? I have no knitting obsessions though I would like to learn to cable and also lace knitting.
7. What is/are your favorite item/s to knit? I enjoy knitting the simple things right now, scarves, dishcloths...I am intimidated at the thought of knitting a sweater.
8. What are you knitting right now? Nada

11. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list? Yes.
12. Do you have any allergies? (smoke, pets, fibers, perfume, etc.) No allergies, but prefer not to receive anything with smoke infused in it. Pet hair I can handle as long as it's not very obvious.
