Secret Pal Survey

1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer high- and/natural fibers)?
I personally prefer wool. I enjoy expensive brands but Lion Brand has some good stuff. I do not like acrylics at all.

2. Do you spin? Crochet?
Yes, I spin and crochet. But I don't crochet that well. I'm a new spinner and I'm completely hooked on it.

3. Do you have any allergies? (smoke, pets, fibers, perfume, etc.)
I can't stand the smell of smoke- I have a super sniffer that can smell it a mile away.
Perfumes give me headaches.

4. How long have you been knitting?
About 4 years, I think.

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

6. What's your favorite scent? (for candles, bath products etc.)
pomegranate, apple, vanilla, Sage

7. Do you have a sweet tooth?
Dark Chocolate- yummy yummy
And I like fruity candies- like jolly ranchers and laffy taffy

8. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do?
I like paper crafts like origami and bookmaking.

9. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)
I?m not a big music person, I listen to NPR mostly.

10. What's your favorite color? Or--do you have a color family/season/palette you prefer?
I love purples, greens and oranges (sometimes all together).

11. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets?
I am married with two beautiful kids, boy- 4 and girl-6. I'm a stay-at-home mom. No pets.

12. What are your life dreams? (really stretching it here, I know)
Hmm... my life dream that's a hard one. I would like my family to stay just the way it is forever, my kids stay young, I stay at home and take care of them and my husband takes care of all of us. Or the kids could grow-up and me and my husband could travel. (I'm flexible)

13. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with?
Noro brand is my favorite, I think it's the colors more than anything.

I really just dabble in everything. I like complicated cables. Right now I am knitting a lot of socks.

That was fun to read your survey. Its always surprising to see what we have in common with someone else and what is surprisingly different also.
