SP 11 Questionaire

Hooray for SP 11!! I know I'm late in posting this, but better late than never :) Life just carries you away sometimes.

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? Handspun yarn is my TOTAL weakness right now...cant't get enough of it :) I'm also addicted to sock yarn :) I love superwash and superwash blends.
What fibers do you absolutely *not* like? Squeeky acrylic :( It will always have a special place in my heart, because that's what I learned with as a child, but it doesn't have a place in my knitting basket anymore:)

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in? A cardboard box...gasp!

3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? I started knitting when I was 7- my grandma taught me how- yay grandma! I put it down when I discovered boys and didn't pick it back up until a few years ago when I came to my senses!
Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced? I'm intermediate, I do believe. There are still a few things that elude me...

4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list? Not anymore. I think I'll create one though...

5. What's your favorite scent? I love spicy and I also love fruity. I'm not into heavy florals, but a light one can be nice. I also love Cookie/Food scented candles.

6. Do you have a sweet tooth? I have a sweet tooth, but not for chocolate. I like hard candy- sour balls, lollypops, etc.

7. Favorite candy? See above :)

8.What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? I really don't have alot of time for other crafts right now, with a toddler running around! I do like to sew, though and do cross stitch

11. Any colors you just can't stand? I'm not a fan of yellow.

12. What is your family situation? I am a single mom, with a toddler- he's two and a half. I work full time from home, to be able to keep him out of daycare, and pick-up work on the weekends to supplement the income. I'm tired alot lately, but it's worth it :)

13. Do you have any pets? I have one kitty- an old siamese cat named Sam.
