Here are the answers to the Knitter's Scavenger Swap

1) Do you knit, crochet or both? How long have you been doing it?
Both but I am better at knitting. I have been knitting for many many many years. OOPs I may be aging myself here. I can only do basic crochet like granny squares definitely nothing with any shaping involved.

2) What is on your needles/hook right now?
A lace shawl, a scarf, a pair of socks and another pair of socks and and and and. How many items should I list? HEE HEE

3) What is the most frequently used tool in your knitting bag?
I just think the best answer is my knitting notion bag I keep in my knitting bag as it holds all the needed extra items for a project needed when knitting and my swim fins for swimming laps in the frog pond.

4) What are your 3 favorite yarns (fiber type or brand)?
Usually it is yarns I can’t afford (such Tilly Thomas the yarn with “things” in it) and yarns from the indie dyers (especially sock yarns) and those yarns that are not locally available. I also like wool both the kind that can be felted and the kind that can’t be felted.
What are your 3 least favorite? Phentex the kind the slippers were knit with in the 60’s and some of the acrylics and anything scratchy. I have definitely become a yarn snob.

5) What is your favorite color?
Pink and then blues, red, purples and I do like black, white and some greens. Browns, oranges, lime green and bright yellows are most definitely not on my fave list. They are okay if they are with other yarns thought.

6) If you had a 5 minute shopping spree in your LYS, how would you plan your attack?
Can we pick which LYS in which city we would like to raid? Can we have a helper? I also would need to know what kind of cart I could use. I would probably preplan after checking out the shop layout really really well. so I could do the most damage possible

7) What is your favorite FO and why? (post a pic if you have it!)
Usually it is the one just completed.

8) What are your favorite things to knit/crochet?
Socks, bags, and now lace shawls

9) Do you collect anything?
Yes, yarn, knitting and cooking magazines, knitting books, did I mention yarn?, cats, angels, fairies, tassels, Americana, cobalt blue items, yarn, and fabric which is on hold until I can sew and quilt again. Oh I like to collect yarn especially sock yarns.

10) What are your five favorite things (not necessarily knitting related)? They are not all just things.
Solara my feline fur toddler, my friends, my computer, yarn and books, my computer, TV and music

11) Are you on Ravelry?
What is your ID?

12) Do you drink tea/coffee/cocoa?

13) Favorite Sweets?
HMMMM YUMMY!!! I have a bad sweet tooth and am a cookie monster. I love chocolate, dark chocolate, Jelly Belly’s, cookies, and cake, ice cream

14) Any allergies?
Only wasps but I abhor black licorice

15) Do you have pets? kids?
Yes one feline fur toddler Solara
