Socret-Pal Questionnaire

Okay - here's mine! I'm so excited! ooohhh...I got MY Spoilee and am emailing today! Hope my Spoiler can use this info - but if not, let me know!

The basics: How long have you been knitting? A lifetime! Since I was a teenager.

Do you consider yourself a beginning sock knitter, an intermediate, or have you been doing this so long you could probably knit a pair in your sleep? Beginner for sure – only on my 3rd pair of toe-up socks.

The measurements: While your pal may ask for some additional info to ensure a great fit, please provide your shoe size, or any other fitting related info you think is pertinent. (fiber related) My shoe size is a women’s 6. (USA) Ask if you need more info. I can tell you how I knit mine...

Favorites: What colors do you love? Purples, all shades of blue, pinks/fushias, chocolate browns, emerald greens, black.

Do you prefer solids or variegated? either

What fibers do you most love to knit with? Merino, superwash wool (for socks).

Who do you consider your favorite yarn vendors? I buy from Knitpicks and elann as well as various sellers on ebay – I love Koigu, CTH, and Roxanne's Zen Yarn Garden. I haven’t tried Claudia or Fleece Artist, but they’re on my list.

What projects (other than socks, of course*S*) do you most enjoy knitting? Lace SHAWLS & scarves!

(fiber related) Dislikes: What fibers can you not stand to knit with? Not fond of acrylic tho’ I do use it for charity knitting.

To wear? What colors would you never wear? Yellow, orange, rust, greens that go to the yellow side (lime, chartreuse, avocado).

The Tools:
Plastic or Metal? Really try not to – but the Knitpicks dpns are intriguing.
Bamboo or wood? YES.

Circs or Straights? Circs.
DPNs or Magic Loop? I use DPNs but am interested in learning to knit with 2 circs.

Are there any knitting accessories you don't have in your collection but would like? Embellish-Knit I-cord maker!

The Extras: Do you have a wish list? Yes.
If so, please share the link! On the sidebar of my blog….
Do you like sweet, sour or salty? (or all of the above? *S*) Sweet, salty

Do you have any allergies your pal should know about? SMOKE – since I quit I can’t stand it.
Favorite scents? Lavender & chamomile (think Target!) and rose
Scents you can't stand? Strong perfumes
Do you collect anything (other than yarn and knitting toys of course)? Cats (not the real ones…tho’ I know you might be fooled by my blog!) and vintage sewing items

When is your birthday? (month and day is fine!) July 11
Do you spin? Nope
Dye your own yarn? Nope
Your favorite author/band/vacation spot, anything you think will help your pal know you better... My “favorite author” is hard to pin-point, tho’ I’m addicted to knit books. Love Michael Buble’, Mozart. New England. Maine Coast.

Now I am your NEW sockret pal, since some people can't seem to send packages when they are supposed to. So sorry to hear about you not getting anything so far, I will be remedying that in the next week or two. Looking forward to getting to "know" you.

Your new Sockret Pal
(who I promise will send a package very soon)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
