I can't wait to participate in this swap! I know it's going to be a great one :)
Here are the my answers to all the questions!
Do you knit or crochet? How long have you been at your craft?
I knit and crochet. I don't crochet very much and definately prefer to knit.
Do you spin? What type of spinning?
No spinning for me!
What are your favorite yarns/fibers? What are your least favorite yarns/fibers?
I LOVE Malabrigo! I also love sock yarn in genernal. I've worked with Jitterbug, Lorna's Laces, and Tofutises so far and I have really liked them. I guess I perfer wool blends. I haven't ventured out to try many other things yet..
What are your favorite colors? What are your least favorite colors?
I love the colors of a peacock. The deep teal, bright green, and a little purple thrown in the mix. My favorite color is green. It seems to look the best on my skin color. I would say I'm not a big fan of red. Thats the only color I don't particularly care for.
Are there any yarns/brands that you are dying to work with but never have?
I am open to working with everything! I would love to try some Socks that Rock!!
What is/are your favorite types of projects to knit/crochet?
I am on a HUGE sock knitting kick right now. They have become my favorite because they go really fast! I also just completed a great shrug and that was a great fast knit as well. So I like fast knits I guess :)
