I snagged this from another blog. I'm sure you care to know these things :)A FEW THINGS ABOUT ME
Are you a yarn snob? Nope. I don't care how much a yarn costs. As long as it feels nice to knit with it's mine.
Do you spin? Crochet? No to spinning; yes to crochet. I learned to crochet before knit. Self taught - says it all.
How long have you been knitting? 4 years? I tried to make Cosmo a sweater and it was awful; but helped me learn to knit and purl.
What other crafts do you like to do? Everything. I love to make things. You name it and i either have or would like to try it!
What are your favorite yarns to knit with? Malabrigo. Sundara. Noro.
What are your favorite needles to knit with? Addi lace turbos. Any size they come in. Then Knitpicks but they don't have all the sizes I like.
What's your favorite knitting gadget? I love to just touch the yarn and put it away. Swift is great; yarn is better.
What fibers do you absolutely NOT like? I never really knew the difference, but know I have a hard time with acrylic. Even cotton is difficult sometimes.
What are your favorite items to knit? Right now it's shawls. And baby sweaters. I don't have as much time to knit so I like the down and dirty easy projects.
What are you knitting right now? 2 shawls: traveling woman and ishbel. Also a baby sweater that just needs edging. I have some socks too that have been sitting around forever.
What do you think about ponchos? I have a few I don't wear so I wouldn't knit one. They are cute but not practical in Ohio. It's either too cold to wear one as a "jacket" or too warm.
Do you prefer straight or circular needles? Definitely circular!
Are you a sock knitter? Of course! Even though I don't like socks I like to knit them. I only have one pair for me that I've knit, and only wear them when it's REALLY cold out!
How did you learn to knit? All by myself. I got a book and worked through the kinks.
What is--and how old is--your oldest UFO (unfinished Object)? I hate UFOs. I only really like one project at a time. I would like to finish Ishbel because it's been around for awhile...
