SP10 Questionnaire

Whoo Hoo!! I joined both Secret Pal 10 and the Spring round of secret pals at Crochetville!!!! As you can tell---I love secret pals. It's just so much fun being mysterious..Tehe..

Here is my SP10 Questionnaire
1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like? I like most yarns but my favorite is TLC Essentials. About the only yarn that I don't like is fun fur. I am jsut learning to knit and haven't tried any of the yummy yarns yet.

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in? I have a sewing organizer that sits on my end table and it holds my hooks, scissors, pendant cutters, tape measure, and everything that I need.

3. How long have you been crocheting & how did you learn? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced?
I have been crocheting for 26 years now. My grandmother taught me at a family Christmas get together. I would consider myself to be advanced.

I just took my first learn to knit class. I can knit and purl but that's it so far. So I am definately a beginner in knitting.

8. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD) I really like anything from the 70s, 80, 90s and now. My computer will play MP3s.

9. What's your favorite color(s)? Any colors you just can't stand? My favorite colors are earthy colors. I also love deep purples and deep blues. Can't think of any colors that I don't like.
