More Secret Pal Info....

Here are my answers to the questions recently send via email:

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with?
I like Cascade 220 and funky novelty yarns. This comes from my recent obsession with all things felted, and I am a sucker for interesting color and texture. But I've also been loving Debbie Bliss Cashmerino lately.

2. What is/are your current knitting obsession/s?
I've been knitting novelty scarves lately. Mostly because it is portable and quick.

3. What is/are your favorite item/s to knit?
I like knitting small objects. Things that can be finished rather quickly. I really like knitting (and felting) bags.

4. What are you knitting right now?
Currently I'm knitting a Bottoms Up Bucket Hat in 100% lime green cotton (I hate cotton these days), a plain black poncho (to see if I can pull off the poncho look), and a ballerina wrap sweater for my nieces in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino(and potentially for all 4 of the flowergirls in my November wedding).

5. Do you prefer straight or circular needles?
Circular.

6. How did you learn to knit?
I taught myself using the book "I Can't Believe I'm Knitting" purchased on a whim at Wal-Mart. Who would have thought that it would actually stick?

7. How old is your oldest UFO?
I have a pair of socks (well actually just half a sock) that I started a year and a half ago. I guess I was all socked out at the time, and never got back to them.

I've finished another Crystal Palace scarf. Pictures to come later today.... hopefully.
