SP11 Questionaire

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?
I love cotton yarns, since thats the only thing that will suit the humid weather here in Malaysia. Yarns that are soft/baby soft and not scratchy or hairy cos they'll just give me the itches. But I wouldn't mind soft wool like merino, or cotton wool blend. I don't like acrylic yarns, eyelash, anything that's furry furry...

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?
Right now they are in an expandable file, unsorted hehe.

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 early last year, me buddy
Rain tought me the basics. Haven't knitted anything that I can actually wear out though. I would consider myself and intermediate knitter.

4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?
Yep I do it's at the side bar.

5. What's your favorite scent?
I love love love lavender. Don't like citrus-y ones. Otherwise I'm okay with anything.

6. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favorite candy?
D-d-dark chocolate! But I'll settle for any good chocolate.

7. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Do you spin?
I also crochet but not that often. Knitting is the most crafty thing that I've done so far. I can't even draw to save my life. And nope I don't spin.

8. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)
I like pop rock songs and also adult alternative. Yep my laptop can play MP3.

9. What's your favorite color(s)? Any colors you just can't stand?
My fav would be purple!!! I also love dark colours like blue, red, ocean green. I don't like anything that's bright/fluorescent. Don't like pinks, oranges, lime green.

10. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets?
Currently in the midst of moving and I don't have any pets.

11. Do you wear scarves, hats, mittens or ponchos?
Weather over here is not cold enough for me to scarves or mittens. I never look good in hats tho.

Funky tank tops. Shawls as gifts for others.

13. What are you knitting right now?
Currently not knitting anything =( I'm horrible at adjusting gauges!

14. Do you like to receive handmade gifts?
Not really, but okay....

15. Do you prefer straight or circular needles? Bamboo, aluminum, plastic?
I prefer circular needles. Currently I have 24" ones only. Would love to own circulars that are long enough to do magic loop and to make sweaters. The best I've tried is Addi needles and it's aluminium. I don't really enjoy knitting with bamboo especially if the ends are not smooth and they ruin the yarn.

16. Do you own a yarn winder and/or swift?
Unfortunately no....Still require an extra pair of hands to help me wind the yarn.

Patterns - Orangina by Stephanie Japel
Sadly I don't subscribe to any knitting magazines
