After a respite from the secret pal thing, cause I was on the move, I have signed up for SP9. Here is the questionnaire:
1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?
I like most things soft. There is not a whole lot a don’t like.
2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?
Sorry to say it, but a plastic ziploc bag.
3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced?
I started knitting when I was probably 9 or 10 years old. One summer my mom taught my sister and I. I have been knitting since, with a short break during college and medical school. I picked it back up about 2 to three years ago. I feel like I could follow any pattern that you could through my way, but am so busy and big projects take so long, that I haven’t done a whole lot of big things lately. And I have never ventured into pattern making. Don’t know if I am up for that.
4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?
5. What’s your favorite scent? (for candles, bath products, etc.)
I don’t really have a favorite, but am not a huge fan of fruity scented things. I also like subtle scents and nothing overpowering.
6. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favorite candy?
I have a BIG sweet tooth. And my favorite is Dove dark chocolate.
7. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Do you spin?
I have done a little of everything. I can crochet. I have done some beading. And some scrapbooking. But my favorite is knitting.
8. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)
I can play MP3s. I like just about everything. I am not a big rap fan, or hard core. But I guess I like just about everything else.
9. What’s your favorite color(s)? Any colors you just can’t stand?
Can’t say what the favorite color is. Depends on my mood. And nothing really that I can’t stand.

I am single, with two cats.
11. Do you wear scarves, hats, mittens or ponchos?
