When did you learn to knit? Who taught you?
My great-grandmother taught me a million years ago, but I didn't stick to it for very long. i recently retaught my self and have been knitting for a little over a year.
What was your very first completed object? Your most recent?
My very first completed project was Bubby from Knitty. Most recent was a few fuzzy scarves for family members. (See further down on blog.)
What was the very first thing you sent to the frog pond? (pulled out and started over) Your most recent?
About 85% of my projects started get frogged. (Either partially or totally.)
What is currently on the needles for you?
I am working on a fuzzy scarf for my mother-in-law, a pair of cabled knee-highs in wool-ease, the cover cardi from Creative Knitting, and I have to finish sewing up a pair of booties for my cousin's new baby.
What types of needles do you enjoy working with? What have you tried and hated?
I really like circular needles. I have a tendancy to misplace one needle out of a pair. The only circs that i really did not like were the Boye needles. The cable would never unwind and the join was funky.
Have you knit dishcloths before?
Yes. I have knit the ballband dishcloth and the star shaped washcloth from Mason-Dixon Knitting.
What was your favorite one?
The star shaped. The bobbles on each tip ended up odd...
Do you use homemade dishcloths or face cloths yourself, or give them as gifts, or both?
Only for myself, so far!
What are your favorite and least favorite scents? (For your body, such as soap/lotion/etc)
Please nothing frou-frou!
What are your favorite colors?
Right now I am into melon, apple green, robin-egg blue, etc...I found a great dish towel with the colors on it. I will post a pic soon! Any happy colors will work!
What colors (if any) are your bathroom and kitchen decorated in?
Kitchen still has 70's decor (rental), bathroom is white and apple green.
What other hobbies and crafts do you enjoy?
Chocolate: Dark? White? Milk? Ew?
Any chocolate is fabulous! Not a huge fan of white.
Do you like salty treats? What kinds?
Hmmm...popcorn, chips, snack mix, trail mix, etc.
If you could go anywhere in the world for one day and spend the day any way you wanted, where would you go and what would you do?
I would adore going to Scotland. I am part scottish and have never been! As for what I would do? Anything!
Do you have any allergies? (Yarns, foods, etc. that might impact what your pal can send)
