Another Swap! Swap Q&A

Ok, here we go again! I so loved the swap I took part in last time that I have been scouring the Ravelry Swap Section ever since waiting for a similar swap to come about. And just the other day I saw that the very same moderators had decided to throw another one! Same deal, three months, three packages, one super secret swappee and one super secret swapper. This is going to be fun!

Anyways, here are the answers to the Swap Questionnaire:

Do you knit or crochet, or both? How long have you been at the craft?


I can do both but I prefer knitting, I crochet typically only for embellishments and such. I have been knitting since I was about 9 or 10, so about 10ish years.

Do you spin?


I do spin, I have a drop spindle right now and plan on getting a wheel when I a) have more moolah and b) am more permanently established somewhere.


What yarns/fibers are your favorites?


I don't think I have a favorite, I try and use a little bit of everything so that I can try as many different varieties of fiber as I can.


What yarns/fibers do you not like?


I'm not a huge fan of chenille...but that's about it.


What yarns/fibers would you like to try but haven’t?


I haven't yet gotten to try many luxury fibers (cashmere, etc) or vegetable and plant fibers, I'd like to try some of those if given the chance.


What are your favorite colors? Colors that you don’t like?


Yellow is my ultimate favorite color and while I love all the colors of the rainbow, I tend to stay away from pink.


What are your favorite types of projects to knit/crochet?


Again, don't really have a favorite, I do a little bit of everything; hats, scarves, sweaters, pullovers, cardigans, booties, slippers, socks, bags, the list goes on.


What are you currently working on?


Right this very moment? I am knitting up a Tee and writing the pattern for it. I also have Cabled by Hinke on needles and am always knitting up various beanies.


What is your favorite FO? (Please post a picture if you have one.)

Again with these favorites, I don't really have any! I am quite proud of this beanie I made for my honey though, and he wears it all the time which means he likes it :)


Are there any techniques that you want to learn?


I'm always up for learning new stitches and techniques. I've tried to learn how to double-knit and for whatever reason it hasn't clicked yet, but I'm working on it.


Do you have a yarn winder and/or swift?


I don't have either, sadly. As with the spinning wheel though, these will have to wait till I have more moolah and a permanent establishment.


How do you store your needles/hooks?


I store my straight needles in a needle case from lenabrowndesigns and my circular needles are currently well organized (sarcasm) in one large plastic ziplock bag.


Do you collect anything?


Not "officially" but I do have a rather large amount of elephant paraphernalia and my tea cabinet is always overflowing.


Do you like sweets?


Sweets are quite possibly my lifeblood. I have one tooth in my mouth and it is definitely a sweet tooth (ok, ok, so I have more, but my sweet tooth is the biggest one).


What are your favorite scents?


I burn a lot of incense and its mostly sandalwood, patchouli and similar scents.


Are you having a birthday during this swap?


That depends on when this swap "technically" starts. My birthday is in early September.


Do you have any online wish lists? (Amazon, Loopy Ewe, etc.) Please include a link for your pal.


I have a Wist you're welcome to visit but I surely need to update it some. Other than that, my favorites on my Etsy profile I suppose


What is your living situation (Are you married? Do you have kids, pets, or both?)


I currently live in a itty bitty apartment with my boyfriend, Matt, my hamster, Delilah, and a homeless cat, Punumbra.


Are you allergic to anything?


Not allergic to anything as far as I know.


Is there anything else that you would like your pal to know?


Umm...I'm a Junior at New Mexico Tech, majoring in Management? Is that important?

I just tried double-knitting recently too. It hasn't clicked with me yet, either. I need another Knit Picks Harmony circular in size 3, I think. Trying to do it with cheap aluminum straights was not working out very well for me.
