Getting to Know you Contest Questionnaire:
1.) How long have you been knitting?
With needles for about 3 years, but I learned when I was 8 but never really picked it up til 3 years ago.
2.) How long have you been knitting socks?
Socks...my favorite. I have been knitting them for about 3 years. When I took the class 3 years ago to refresh me on the ins and outs of knitting, the shop owner told me to wait to knit socks. I was stubborn and I had my mind set so I taught myself that very same weekend.
3.) What do you do with a problem like Maria?
Hmmm....let the kiddos have at it.
4.) What is your all time favorite sock yarn?
Yarntini and Louet
5.) Toe Up or Cuff Down?
Cuff down...always ;)
6.) What's your favorite color (this week or for all time)? Do you have a color family/season/palette you prefer? Any colors you just can't stand?
Man, this one is a tough one. My wonderboy asks me about my favorite color all the time but to tell you the truth I don't really have a favorite. I like blues and purples and pinks but I will only wear them if I feel in the mood. Most of the time, I wear blacks.
7.) Do you have a pet(s)?
I have my little Betta fish Jumpy--the kids named him Jumpy.
8.) Babies: Oven Roasted or Barbecued?
I love babies. I love to hold them and cuddle with them. I love to feed them (not nurse them, just bottle feed them). I love to be near them. I would have 100 of them if I could....but they grow up and start talking back LOL
9.) Besides socks what is your favorite type of thing to knit?
I like small projects, preferably for babies.

Moonlight Path from Bed Bath and Beyond

Right now, I am digging Jesse McCartney--I'm Leaving
12.) How many pairs of socks have you hand knit?
About 25....and counting!
13.) What's your favorite treat? Salty or Sweet?
My favorite treat: rice pudding. I prefer salty stuff though.
14.) What was the most interesting thing you smelled yesterday. Not good or bad necessarily, just the thing that stuck out most so that you actually took notice of it.
The most interesting thing....hmmm, the chlorine from the pool. The smell stuck to all of us for the entire day.
15.) Needles - DPN's: Wooden, metal or plastic?
DPNS--loooooove the Crystal Palace 6" dpns. My ultimate favorite ones.
16.) What is your favorite sock pattern that you've knit? What do you recommend?
My favorite ones were the latest ones I made but I cannot show them to you. Cookie A will be releasing it soon though ;).
17.) The last Question: If you were stuck on a deserted island who would you want with you, what knitting would you want with you and would you ever want to leave?
I would take my family: my two little children and my husband. Knitting: I would take cotton yarn and needles that would work for it to make my family clothes. If we were happy with whatever was around: food and entertainment, I wouldn't leave. However if leaving would provide a better future I would leave so they could have a better life.
