Sock-It-To-Me Questionnaire

What are your foot measurements? (Please give shoe size, length and circumference.)
I wear a size 9 1/2 US women's shoe, and my foot is 10 inches long and 10 inches around. Big feet ... sorry!

How long have you been knitting? How would you rate your experience? (Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced.)
I have been knitting for almost 2 years. I would rate my experience as an adventurous intermediate.

What is your favorite color? Your least favorite color?
My favorite colors are the colors of water - blue, green, grey and any combination. I really don't have a least favorite color I like all colors.

Do you have a favorite fiber? What type?
For socks, superwash is key! I normally use regular wool superwash, but I just got some Tofutsies to try out.

Do you have any allergies to certain fibers?
Nope, unless you count cat fur ...

Do you have an Amazon, or other type of, wishlist? (If so, provide the link.)

What techniques, if any, would you like to learn?
I would like to learn fair isle, and work more on intarsia.

Do you have a sweet tooth? What are your favorite snacks?
Chocolate! The darker, the better ... of course, it is really hot right now, so that is not very practical for shipping.

What is your family situation? (Children, Husband, Pets...etc.)
I live with my boyfriend, Mike, and have 2 grown children. He has 2 teenaged sons that we spend time with on the weekend.

Do you prefer straight or circular needles? Metal, plastic or wood?
Yes. *grin* For socks, DPNs, for everything else, it depends on what I am knitting.

Besides socks, what are your favorite items to knit?
Baby items for charity.

Is there a pattern, (sock or otherwise), that you are dying to try?
I love socks with an interesting texture. There isn't a specific pattern I am looking for, but I always keep an eye out for different socks.

Do you like to read? What are you reading currently?
I do like to read, but I haven't been reading very much lately. The only reading I have been doing lately is knitting patterns, lol!

Do you collect music? (On an iPod or MP3 player.)
I don't have an iPod, but I can play MP3s on my CD player.

What kind of music do you listen to?
I like Blues and Jazz - especially BB King and Diana Krall. I listen to lots of different music, just about everything except heavy metal.

Is there anything you collect?
I collect ladybugs.

What are your hobbies, aside from knitting?
Sewing, counted cross stitch, needle tatting, crochet, quilting.

Are you participating in any other swaps or knit alongs?
Ummm ... a couple ... see the sidebar

Do you have a favorite scent?
Vanilla (yes, I am boring that way)

When is your birthday? (You don't have to add the year if you don't want to, LOL.)
Last Friday :) I was 43 years old.
