SP9 Questionnaire

Wow - almost that time again! I had such spoiling and being spoiled that I want to do it again. Not surprisingly, most of my answers have stayed the same.

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like? Love alpaca, alpaca blends, wool that is soft. Don’t like harsh feel or colors, the usual curse of acrylics, though the newer microfiber yarns look interesting.

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in? Needle case for straight needles, DPNs and circs are in their packages in a basket.

3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced? My mother taught me to knit when I was nine, and I’ve been knitting for almost 35 years. I’m an intermediate knitter, as I haven’t tried Fair Isle, or intarsia, or entrelac.

4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list? Amazon wish list is up to date.

5. What's your favorite scent? (for candles, bath products, etc.) Lavender
