KSKS Questionnaire

What are your favorite colors? I like most colors, actually! I'm not a big pastel person, though. I gravitate toward autumnal shades, but I'm open to just about anything.

Are you a new sock knitter? How long have you been knitting socks? I'm not really a new sock knitter - I tackled socks fairly soon after I learned to knit. That being said, I've only been knitting for less than a year.

Do you prefer solid or multicolored yarn? I like both. I only have one solid (orange), everything else I've bought is multi/variegated - so I'm open to whatever you'd like to send!

What fibers do you prefer in sock yarn? wool - superwash is great, but not a requirement

Where do you usually knit socks? everywhere

How do you usually carry/store small projects? Ziploc bags

What are your favorite sock knitting patterns? Jaywalker, Pomatomus, the Sock Bug hard to pick!

What are your favorite sock knitting techniques? not sure...I like top-down, toe-up, using dpn's, using magic loop...

What new techniques would you like to try? don't know

Do you prefer circulars or dpns for sock knitting? I like them both!

What are some of your favorite yarns? I'm not that picky, LOL! I DO NOT like Sockotta and I'm not all that excited about Cascade Fixation either.

What yarn do you totally covet? Socks That Rock and Lorna's Laces

Any pattern you would love to make if money and time were no object? doesn't really apply...if I want to do it badly enough, I'd do it!

Favorite kind of needles (brand, materials, straights or circs, etc)? I do love Addi Turbos (already have sz 1 and 2). Most of my dpns are Clover brand, which is fine, but I do have some Inox dpns and the short Bryspuns. I'd love to have some Lantern Moon needles!

If you were a specific kind of yarn, which brand and kind of yarn would you be? I'd most likely be Socks That Rock.

Do you have a favorite candy or mail-able snack? I love chocolate, but it's not great for mailing in the summer! I do love Starbursts. Surprise me! Just no coconut, please!

What’s your favorite animal? I love most animals - no particular favorites!

Do you have pets? What are their species/names/ages? I have a dog, Maggie. She's a Schipperke mix, age: almost 8.

If you were a color what color would you be? orange! if not orange, then green.

Describe your favorite shirt (yours or someone else’s).. ???

What is your most inspiring image, flower, or object in nature? the Calla lily

Tell me the best quote you’ve ever heard or read. "There is some crap, up with which, I will not put."
