Secret Pal 6 Questionnaire!

I'm so sorry, whoever you are, my Secret Pal!!! I wanted to get this up before now, but life has been determined to get in my way...So here's the info, and I hope you find something here you can use! (((hugs)))

1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer higher quality and/or natural fibers)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? Or is it all the same to you?
Not really. I’m allergic to most wool – tho’ have just started using Merino from Knitpicks and I love it! (It’s not making me itch)…Alpaca is fine, silk, cotton, and I use Lion Homespun and dishcloth cotton, too…not a fan of Red Heart, but Caron's Simply Soft works well in lots of things. I enjoy Fun Fur stuff, too! Except for most wools, anything is fine as long as it's SOFT.

2. Do you spin? Crochet? No to spinning, and used to crochet but can’t anymore (my hands won’t let me.)

3. Do you have any allergies? SMOKE, most perfumes.
