Scavernger Hunt Questionaire

1) Do you knit, crochet or both? How long have you been doing it?

Now Both. My grandma taught me to crochet when I was little, which my mother reinforced. Grandma provided many gifts over the years that I still cherish.

Two years ago I read "A Good Yarn" and "A Shop on Blossom Street" by Debbie McComber and I HAD to learn to knit socks. Two years later I am an avid knitter who's other love (quilting) has dropped by the wayside.

2) What is on your needles/hook right now?

EZ Baby Surprise Jacket - currently just one thing as I completed all "hanging out" projects for Xmas and haven't had a chance to refill the bags/needles with projects. One of the top things on my to do list.

3) What is the most frequently used tool in your knitting bag?

Tape Measure.

4) What are your 3 favorite yarns (fiber type or brand)? What are your 3 least favorite?

Favs - Wool ! - Blue Moon Fiber Arts - Soft! ???? I really haven't used much else to "Love" it

Wow... fav FO... I can't think of anything that just GRABS me, but I love my socks.

8) What are your favorite things to knit/crochet?

Socks and "quick knits" I like the feeling of satisfaction of finishing a project. I have not knit a sweater cause it takes to long (ok, yet). And what's better than hand-knit socks?

9) Do you collect anything?

Not much, I don't like to dust. I have the entire collection of Jude Deveraux books & August Moon Collectibles.

Hi Karrie! Fun to learn more about you! I'll copy that pattern and send it to you. It came from a book--EZ's The Opinionated Knitter. Happy Wednesday!
