The Questionnaire

1) Do you knit, crochet or both? How long have you been doing it?  Both, but I really only crochet now when I have to.  So primarily a knitter.  For around 4 years.
2) What is on your needles/hook right now?  Socks, Fibertrends clogs, dishclothes, a vest, cardigan, pullover, gauntlets.  I have trouble focusing on one project at a time ;-))

4) What are your 3 favorite yarns (fiber type or brand)? What are your 3 least favorite?  I love soft yarns like merino, soft mohair, Artyarns.  I don’t like ANYTHING scratchy.
5) What is your favorite color? Can’t pick just one… jewel tones are my fav

Hello world!

Me, a blog, HA!  I need one though for swaps sometimes and it could be fun to let friends know what’s going on in my world, so here goes.  I’m a fiber addict – knitting, spinning, weaving(just started) and quilting are my choices.  Occasionally some crochet.  I learned to crochet in the 6th grade, Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Cloyd taught several of us girls how to do it.  Knitting, I learned from a dear friend about 4 years ago.  After my first lesson, I left her house sweating bullets and her sweet (grown daughter) said she didn’t think I liked it.  I swore I wouldn’t let it beat me though and here I am today knitting every day.  I also scrapbook and am addicted to the internet, I love a husband and son and 6 dogs, 2 cats and a sun conure.  Let’s see where this goes, shall we??
