Secret Pal 11 Questionnaire

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?

I love the silk mix yarns I´ve been knitting with lately! They do have kind of a restricted range of usage though, and I don´t need that many shawls. Variegated yarns for socks is another favourite, preferably with a bit of nylon or similar in it. And I love NORO yarn!

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?

Actually, that´s a main headache these days. I store them in a hand-sewn pouch, but it´s absolutely not right for my circulars or my DPNs.

3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced?

I guess I was about 3 years old the first time, my grandmother taught me. My first sweater was knitted around 11 I think. At least it was finished about age 11. Now, I still hunt down my mom to help me with steeking or other tricky business. Like finishing boring arms LOL! I guess I´m an advanced knitter, I have still to find a project I couldn´t do.

4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?


5. What’s your favorite scent?

Fresh clean scents. I don´t really use a lot of perfumed creams, scented candles etc.

6. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favorite candy?

I´m not really into sweet stuff or candy...

7. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Do you spin?

Gardening!! My blog has a link to my garden blog in Norwegian.

8. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)

I´m not much of a music listener either :) Maybe some jazzy, folky type music? I have an IPOD.

9. What’s your favorite color(s)? Any colors you just can’t stand?

I love colours, love love love.
I try to stay away from oranges, yellows, browns.

10. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets?

No pet, but a husband and a 4-year old son

11. Do you wear scarves, hats, mittens or ponchos?

Yes, no ponchos though. They make me look huge! And I have a rather big head...

12. What is/are your favorite item/s to knit?

Sock, sweaters, scarfs and mittens. Etc?

13. What are you knitting right now?

Two pairs of socks, a shawl, another shawl. And I´m getting my act together to knit Eunny Jangs latest creation, the Autumn Rose sweater

14. Do you like to receive handmade gifts?
