Secret Pal 4 Questionnaire

forgive me, I'm not very good at questionnaires, maybe that's why i avoid doing those memes.

1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer high- and/natural fibers)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? Or is it all the same to you?
I'm not a yarn snob. I adore high end fibers, but I also use lion brand for projects. I am fine with acrylic as long as it's soft and cuddly.

2. Do you spin? Crochet?
I spin on an Ashford Traditional Wheel.

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

I don't like smoke, and I'm allergic to pollen... so I guess it's best if I don't have yarn that's been rolling around in a bed of flowers :-P

4. How long have you been knitting?
2 years, but I've really gotten going this past year.

5. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?
yes. It's at

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

7. Do you have a sweet tooth?

8. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do?
Sew, make cards, origami, make jewelry

9. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)
indie bands. some of my favs are Death Cab for Cutie, Postal Service, The Tragically Hip, Beulah, Mates of State, The New Pornographers, and The Shins.
so if it sounds along those lines, I'll probably like it.

10. What's your favorite color? Or--do you have a color family/season/palette you prefer?
That's really hard... It depends on my mood. Right now, I'm loving bright colors (must be a winter thing) as they cheer me up so much. But I also like muted colors. I wear a lot of blue, but I'm also one of those that thinks that orange is underused in everything. Basically, I like all colors.

11. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets?
I live with my boyfriend and a kitty named Asha and a guinea pig named Mesquite (skeeter)

in dream two, I work at home and hold another part time job while I concentrate on making crafts and selling yarn and clothes and accessories.
