I signed up for yet another swap/exchange. These are fun! I have to post the questionnaire on my blog, so here goes.

1. What's your favourite type of yarn?
SOFT! (angora, silk, cotton, linen, chenille, superwash wool, bamboo)
2. What's your least favourite type of yarn?
SCRATCHY! (mohair, Lopi, shetland wool, rayon chenille, acrylic)
3. What's the first thing you do when you visit a new yarn shop?
Touch all the sock yarn, then go to the sale section and feel the yarn there.
4. What other crafts do you do / would like to do?
quilting, dyeing fabric & yarn, crochet, hmmmmmmm...fiber art in general
5. What magazines do you currently subscribe to? Too many!

6. Put this type of magazine in order of preference:
Knitting / Garden / Food / Home / Crochet / Other Craft / Fashion (Isn't knitting fashion?) / Celebrity Gossip
7. What items do you like to knit / crochet?
Socks, felted bags, slippers, sweaters, hats, scarves
8. Are you allergic to anything?
Mohair, yak hair, perfume, cigarette smoke, dust and mold.
9. What do you like to* smell of?
(*This is not a typo. The question is: What do you like to smell of)
lavender, vanilla or chocolate? I can't smell, so definitely not perfume, especially after I figured out I was allergic to it.
10. What's your favourite way to relax?
knitting or reading (or both together!)
11. You're stood in front of a Victorian style sweetshop, an Italian cafe, an old fashioned bakery and a dainty tea room. Where do you go first?
Wow, that's a hard one. I think the Italian cafe.
12. What do you come out with?
A mocha and an almond biscotti dipped in chocolate, plus a cannoli for later.
13. Where do you go next?
The yarn store of course! Unless I have to go to another one of the sweet shops. I'd choose the bakery next, or's just too hard.
14. Any other words of wisdom for your pal?
Have fun, enjoy life, knit socks, and drink wisely
