My Secret Pal Questionarie:

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?I do some charity knitting and for that I always use the cheaper yarns, but for myself, family and friends tend to use better stuff.

2. Do you spin? Crochet?A beginning spinner with a relatively new wheel, I am loving designing my own yarn.
Have lost interest in crochet after a granny square faze way too many years ago.

3. Do you have any allergies? (smoke, pets, fibers, perfume, etc.)
Some scents give me fits.

4. How long have you been knitting?
More years that a lot of people have been alive.

5. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?
Yes! It’s under Theresa Robinett.

6. What's your favorite scent? (for candles, bath products etc.)
Adore freesia.

7. Do you have a sweet tooth?
Yes, wish it would fall out.

8. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do?
I collect beads and have made jewelry for years. Also make puppets (work related)

9. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)
Like all kinds of music, but in order to get all the reading done I find that most of my time is spent listening to books on my I-pod.

10. What's your favorite color? Or--do you have a color family/season/palette you prefer? Any colors you just can't stand?
I’m a “Spring” and anything with a blue base works for me--purple and pinks are my favorites though.

11. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets?
I have been divorced for years and now that the kids are grown, it’s just me and the dog (a great springer spaniel named Dooley).

12. What are your life dreams? (really stretching it here, I know)
To have as much fun as possible, to see as much of the world as I can, and to hopefully do a bit of good along the way.

13. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with?
I love wool and wool/silk/etc. blends with interesting color variations.

14. What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?
Have yet to meet one I don’t like.

15. What is/are your current knitting obsession/s?
This list is just too long--but since my daughter is expecting my first grandchild, I guess baby items.

16. What is/are your favorite item/s to knit?
I tend to prefer projects that are more involved—sweaters, shawls, etc.

17. What are you knitting right now?
One baby blanket, one sweater, one handbag that will be felted and a pair of socks are on my needles now.

18. What do you think about ponchos?
I basically like the idea, but have yet to find one that suits me—it maybe that this is something that has just passed me by.

19. Do you prefer straight or circular needles?
No preference.

20. Bamboo, aluminum, plastic?
All good.

21. Are you a sock knitter?

23. How old is your oldest UFO?
2 years.

24. What is your favorite animated character or a favorite animal/bird?
Love dogs.

It’s a toss up between Halloween and Christmas.

Pop-up books.

27. What knitting magazine subscriptions do you have?
Cast-on, Interweave knits and Spin-off

28. Any books out there you are dying to get your hands on?

29. Any patterns you have been coveting, but haven't bought for one reason or another??
I love the Just One More Rows patterns after doing the short row bag and want to get Crystal Cove, Half Moon Bay and Lighting Lace.

Size eight shoe. Love anything soft and warm with a bit of color.
