Secret Pal 10 Questionnaire

I have joined Secret Pal 10,
Here are my answers to the questionnaire

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?

I realy can’t stand Chenille and I am not keen on some acrylics, it depends on the type of yarn really.

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?

I have a needle bag that I keep everything in.

3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced?

I would say i am intermediate, there’s always more to learn. I taught myself to knit when I was 7, I did a lot of knitting until I had my second child and then I just didn’t have the time until now, now my 3rd and 4th (who are twins) have grown a bit.

4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?

I do, here

I’m not much of a sweet eater, I do like some chocolates.

7. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Do you spin?

I used to weave but I don’t have the space anymore, I’ve just taught myself how to crochet, but I’m still only a beginner. I also make cards, sketch and a bit of sewing too.

8. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)

Yes my computer does play MP3s, I’m quite open minded when it comes to music, I listen to traditional and classic music to heavy metal. I’m not keen on Jazz, or D&B.

9. What’s your favorite color(s)? Any colors you just can’t stand?

I like all colours, I love deep colours, red, dark blue, a really dark green, I’m not keen on really bright colours.
