Dog Days of Summer Questionaire

  1. Do you knit, or crochet, or do both? How long have you been knitting\crocheting? I'm a knitter. I learned to knit in October 2006 when I took a class at my LYS. I've been hooked ever since. I've been wanting to learn to crochet. I found a website(Crafty Daisies) that's hosting a 12 week tutorial on crocheting. I've been busy learning entrelac knitting so I'm only on lesson #1.
  2. Have you knit dishcloths or dishtowels before? When I learned to knit, I made a garter stitch dishcloth. I'm a member of the Monthly Dishcloth KAL over at Yahoo Groups. Dishcloths are a way to try on a small scale new stitches or a pattern that I'll use for a larger item.
  3. What are your favorite cotton yarns? Is there a cotton or linen you’ve been dying to try but have not? I like Sugar'n Cream , Peaches & Creme, Plymouth's Fantasy Naturale and Tatamy Tweed.
  4. Are there any cotton yarns you don’t enjoy knitting with? No
  5. What type of needle do you prefer using? (Metal/Wood/Plastic) The yarn I'm using determines what type of needles that I use. I love my bamboo straights and my Addi Turbo Circs.
  6. What other projects do you enjoy knitting or crocheting? I'm a socknitter and whenever I get a chance I try to recruit others to socknitting. ;-)
  7. Do you have other hobbies or enjoy other kinds of crafting? I like reading, Texas hold'em poker, scrabble, sewing, and gardening.
  8. What kind of treats do you like? Chocolate? Candies? Nuts? I 'm a chocoholic. I like trail mix.

  12. Do you have any kids (human or pet variety!)? No kids(human or pet variety)..... at this time

  14. Please share 3 tidbits about yourself that you think your pal and other swappers might find odd or interesting. a) I have a butterfly tattoo on my right shoulder blade. b) I'm new to blogging. c) I've never gone to any of my high school reunions.....I'm 39 years old so there's a few that I've missed.

I'm trying to finish up a couple more Greensburg squares and finish one of the baby jackets, then I am going to plunge into the exciting world of sock-knitting!

I've missed right at as many reunions as you have too! ;)
