What is your favorite fiber?
Anything soft. I'm not super-familiar with different fibers yet, so really anything that feels nice.
What fibers do you not like?
I'm starting to understand why 100% acrylic just isn't as special as some of these others. Looking back, I wish I'd known more about yarn before I made a whole blanket out of acrylic yarn. So, anything that is rough, itchy, and/or un-natural is not really my thing.
Are you allergic to anything, knitting or non-knitting related?
Pollen, dust, and (to some mild extent) pets. But I have a cat and my roommate has a dog. I promise it isn't severe or anything.
Are there any yarn types you don't like? (eyelash, etc)
Anything having to do with lace and/or that is white. I like colors and I don't do lace... I'm just not interested in it.
What weight yarn do you prefer?
I don't think I have a preference, but so far I have only knitted with worsted and bought some sock/fingering yarn that I have yet to try. (I hope I love it, though, because I really want to make cute socks!) I would LOVE to try some bulky or super-bulky, but I have to stop buying yarn for the moment and work on the projects that I have already started.
Is there a weight yarn you don't like?
Again, probably anything that looks like it is for lace. Everything else I feel like I can find a use for.
What do you like to knit? (sock, scarves, hats, afghans, etc.)
I like practial things mostly. I've done scaves and blankets and I want to try socks (badly) and maybe gloves, too. I personally don't like wearing hats, so I can't see doing those. When I get very brave I might do a sweater, but I would also have to find a pattern that I really love, first.
What knitting accessories do you like or use a lot? Not like or not use?
I don't think I really have a lot of gadjets yet. I did buy a row-counter, but found that I really dislike the extra weight on a straight needle. I have not tried the kind that you pin to the piece, though. I just started working with circulars (I bought sizes 1, 2, and 8 so that I could do socks and basic things with worsted-weight yarn) and I am really liking those because they travel SO much easier.
What non-knitting things do you like?
I ride my bike outside for exercise and I really love that! I'm also addicted to a whole list of TV shows (Lost, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Dexter, Hereos, Weeds, House M.D., I think there's more...). I LOVE sushi and chocolate, but not chocolate with coconut or nuts and dark chocolate or chocolate with caramel is extra yummy!
Lilac, Bath and Body Works Cucumber Melon or Honeysuckle (not really sure if they make either of those anymore)... anything really except vanilla (I know, I'm weird :P) and spicy scents (which I am pretty particular about).
Purple has been a biggie for me for a while now, but I like all colors, so long as they are muted and not pastel. I also prefer earth-tones (blue, green, brown, etc.) and can't usually find anything to do with orange and yellow (neither of which I really like all that well).
Chocolate! (See above.) Also, anything fruity (strawberry, grape, watermelon, etc.) with the exception of lemon and banana (gross flavors for candy, in my opinion).
Do you collect anything?
I do collect stuffed animals, but it is a very space-hogging thing to collect and I've basically stopped buying them. I can still appreciate a very nice teddy bear (the $40 ones that are super-soft), but it isn't something I really indulge in anymore. One day, I hope to have a curio cabinet to put all of them in. Also, I like unusual/local jewelery that doesn't look like what you find in department stores. For example, I have a black coral necklace that my parents bought me from the Cayman Islands, and some special celtic-inspired pieces I bought for myself in the UK.
Anything else you like that is not listed here?
I have a cat, Ellie, who is my furry baby--whether she likes it or not. I spoil her and love her to pieces.
