My One Skein swap pal emailed me! i was so excited when i got the email-It's official i am in a Swap! Of course i emailed back right away and answered some swap Q's. Here are my answers.

1. Which yarn is most like your personality (you can be specific or general with your answer- brand, type, color, fiber, whatever)?
...i can't think of a shy yarn LOL i guess i would have to say a magic stripe yarn because you have to work with it and get to know the yarn before it reveals to you what its like.

2. What is your favorite color yarn to knit/crochet with?
I like bright happy colors, pinks purples, turquoise, i would have to say most of my stuff has been in bright colors or dark pinks/magenta colors.

3. Have you ever used variegated, or magic, yarns?
i made a water bottle holder for my mom's birthday in a variegated yarn by Art Yarns. It had purples and pinks in it.

4. Do you tend to favor certain fibers when choosing yarns?
No i wouldn't say i have, a lot of the projects i have made have been for babies so i use a really soft acrylic yarn called Caron Simply Soft. but i have tried to use a lot of different stuff.

5. Do you prefer to work with center-pull or traditionally wound balls of yarn?
I have never-used a center-pull so i have no preference but as long as i can use the yarn i wouldn't mind how it was wound up :)

6. Have you ever worked with organic yarns or are you interested in trying them?
No i haven't used any but my LYS had this soy yarn that was soo soft and sooo expensive but i am sure it must be a dream to knit with and make a really great final product.

7. How many and what projects have you made in the last year?
i would guess about 20 but they have all been smaller quick knits.

8. Will you be knitting any gifts this year?
Yep, i did some for Easter and i want to make some for Christmas (i have plans to start early LOL i am sure you have heard that before) and i am doing a baby shower gift for my friend.

9. What is your favorite one skein project?
I love the cupcakes in the book and in another book i have Weekend Knitting they have flower washcloths that i love to make.

10. How much yarn do you have in your stash and how do you store it?
I have an 18 gallon tote full of yarn and other wooden basket chest that is about 3/4 the size of the tote. Not to bad i think if i added anymore storage for yarn my husband would be like What is going on??

11. Do you have a yarn in your stash that you love so much you can never use it or part with it? No i dont have one of those yet my problem is just not knowing what to use it for.

12. Do you knit less or differently in the summer?
yea i would say a little less in the summer because i am outside more playing.

13. Do you belong to any knitting groups (online or offline)?
No there aren't any in my area. i really really wish there were i have even thought about starting my own but i wouldn't know where to begin but i am on the One Skein knit along and the Sexy Knitters Club
