Sock It To Me Again Questionaire

Dear SITMA Partner,
Here are the answers to my questions. You left a comment asking me to email you, however I don't have your email either. :) You can email me at jessica DOT p AT mx3 DOT com
  1. How long have you been knitting? Do you consider yourself beginner, intermediate, advanced? I've been knitting for several years, I really don't remember when I started exactly. I would say I'm an intermediate knitter. There really isn't any knitting that I won't try.
  2. How long have you been knitting socks? I've only been knitting socks since last April. I'm not sure what took me so long! I started out with a lace sock and have gone from there.
  3. What are your favorite fibers to work with? wool, alpaca, silk - anything soft really.
  4. What is your favorite color? I love blues, greens, reds...
  5. What are your current WIPs (works in progress)? I'm working on Snowflake fingerless gloves, a recycled silk scarf and a lattice cabled hat. I also have a baby hat that is in time out right now for having the wrong gauge.
  6. Name your favorite yarns, (brand, fibers, colors, etc.). I am totally in love with Pagewood Farms fingering weight yarn right now. It's beautiful and comes in a huge skein. I also really like Lorna's Laces. I'm open to any colorway... I'm in a bit of a blue/red color rut so I'm open to change. Edited to add - I am currently in love with Rowan yarns. Not necessarily their patterns but I love love love their yarns.
  7. What are some yarns/fibers that you stay away from. I stay away from dark colors if I'm the one doing the knitting. My eyes go kind of crazy knitting with dark colors. That being said, I wear a lot of black and brown.
  8. What is your family situation? (Married, kids, pets?) I have a husband, 2 little girls and a cat.
  9. Name some of your hobbies. Knitting, reading, knitting, baking
  10. Name some of your favorite movies? I love chick flicks because I rarely get to watch them. It's kid movies or action/adventure most of the time at our house. :)
  11. Do you like to read? Yes! Right now I'm reading "Eat Pray Love." My little sister has gotten me to read almost all the books her book club has read.
  12. Do you collect anything? Willow Tree Angels. My 3 year old names them after the people in our family.
  13. Do you own an iPod or mp3 player? nope. But Hint hint I think that would be a great gift!
  14. What are your favorite type of knitting needles? I like wooden needles for socks and lace, but Addie turbos for thicker yarns.
  15. What knitting notion could you not live without? Stitch markers and measuring tape. I never have uninterrupted knitting time so I need all the help I can get.
  16. Who are some of your favorite designers? Cookie A. I think Cat Bordhi thinks in some loopy backwards wonderful way. Seriously, how does she come up with some of that stuff?
  17. Do you subscribe to any magazines? (Knitting or otherwise.) No, but I've started intermittently buying Interweave Knit
  18. When is your birthday? 9/11/77
  19. Do you have a "wishlist", (on Ravelry, Froogle, or Amazon)? Not yet. I didn't realize Ravelry had a wishlist function yet. Must check that out.
  20. Do you have a Ravelry ID? knittingupnorth
  21. If you had a sheep, what would you name it? $Money$

FYI...It's my month for book club and I ended up picking Veil of Roses by Laura Fitzgerald. It's out on loan right now but if people are done with it by christmas you can borrow it! I couldn't decide between that and Eat, Pray, Love!

How cute that your daughter names your Willow Angels after members of your family!! And I know we've talked about this before, but it's so cool that your birthday is the day before mine :) Thanks for sharing!
