My knitting obsession

1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer higher quality and/or natural fibres)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? Or is it all the same to you?
I will knit anything. The cheaper the better, then it doesn’t matter if it fucks up.

2. Do you spin? Crochet?
No chance.

3. Do you have any allergies? (Smoke, pets, fibres, perfume, etc.)
Mayonnaise makes my skin go red.

4. How long have you been knitting?
Only a few months.

5. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?
Yes of course.

6. What’s your favourite scent? (for candles, bath products etc.)
Vanilla, ylang ylang, dragon’s blood, lemon, cinnamon, clove. In that order.

7. Do you have a sweet tooth?
All of ‘em.

8. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do?
I love making anything.

9. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s?
I have eclectic musical taste. Classical to hard house, jazz, big band, bubblegum, drum ‘n’ bass, but indie is my true love.

10. What’s your favourite colour? Or–do you have a colour family/season/palette you prefer? Any colours you just can’t stand?
I love all colours, but I love brown more than most at the moment. I also have a navy blue scarf that goes nicely with a brown pinstripe blazer.

11. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets?
Living with partner, lots of plants.

To be as happy as possible and make lots of things.

13. What is/are your favourite yarn/s to knit with?

Scarves, they’re quick and satisfying.

A mohair scarf for my sister.

18. What do you think about ponchos?
I like them, I think they’re good. I need more practice before I attempt one though.

20. Bamboo, aluminium, plastic?
Metal, or plastic. Never tried bamboo.

Not yet.
