Since I heard from my SP, I thought I shoudl get my questionaire up.
1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?

A. I mostly use my Denise's which have a case
3. How long have you been knitting? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced?
A. I have been knitting for 10 years. I am intermediate/advanced.
4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?
5. What's your favorite scent? (for candles, bath products etc.)
A. My favorite perfume is Fresh Index Apricot Fig (to give a concept); I love lavender, plumeria, I love this hand lotion I put on because it smells like cleaning fluid, so obviously my scent pallatte is not that refined.
6. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favorite candy?

A. I like alternative, jazz (not smooth jazz or the the kind I have to think about), big band, 80s. Yes.
9. What's your favorite color? Or--do you have a color family/season/palette you prefer? Any colors you just can't stand?
A. OK so now I am thinking I am getting into this retro thing going... I like chartreuse, teals, brown combos... or chocolate and pink, but ofcourse Im always happy with greens and burgundies or blues/greens... in other words anything but yellow an orange... unless it's a tangerine
10. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets?

11. Do you wear scarves, hats, mittens or ponchos?
A. In theory I want to wear scarves, but I never seem to. I feel like I am 30 years too old to wear mittens. Not really a poncho girl... but HATS... I LOVE HATS! I would wear a hat constantly if I could. I love hats.
12. What is/are your favorite item/s to knit?
A. Anything that I can finish. I am going to start Jaywalkers soon to see what the trouble is about.
13. What are you knitting right now?
