secret pals 4 questions

from looking around at the people doing secret pals 4, i noticed that the little questionnaire floating around would be very helpful when trying to send your pal stuff. so i answered all the questions to help my pal, wherever they are.

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?

kind of - i think cheap acrylic yarn definitely has its place, but if i'm making something special for someone, then i want nice yarn to show off all the hours i put into making the piece.

2. Do you spin? Crochet?

i learned how to crochet way before i learned how to knit, and i've never spun anything.

3. Do you have any allergies? (smoke, pets, fibers, perfume, etc.)

no. except for mosquito bites.

4. How long have you been knitting?

since October. my aunt re-taught me while she was visiting from Ireland.

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

yes, but i need to update it.

6. What's your favorite scent? (for candles, bath products etc.)

orange. i like all fruity scents. and most other scents, but those are my favorite.

7. Do you have a sweet tooth?

yes. i like milk chocolate the most and dark chocolate the least, and pretty much everything in between.

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

i like making cat furniture, and hope to learn to sew soon (as soon as i buy myself a sewing machine) and i like making soap and bath products.

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

i can play MP3s, and i have a very diverse taste in music.

10. What's your favorite color? Or--do you have a color family/season/palette you prefer?

13. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with?

i love lamb's pride. and i like fun novelty yarns, i don't care that they're not cool anymore.

14. What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?
