Your favorite colors? I LIKE RED, DEEP DARK RED. I LIKE ORANGE AND YELLOW TOO.
Preferred yarn weight (Fingering, Sport, DK, maybe even Worsted)? FOR CLOTHING (SWEATERS, HATS,SCARVES) I LIKE WORSTED TO CHUNKY, BUT FOR SOCKS, I AM THINKING FINGERING TO SPORT IS BEST.
Do you prefer solid or multicolored yarn? I LIKE MOSTLY ONE COLOR, WITH A BIT OF VARYING SHADES OF THE SAME TONE, LIKE HEATHERING OR GRADING LIKE DEEP BLUE TO LIGHT BLUE.
If your buddy is able to do so, would you like a variegated,
self-striping, or self-patterning yarn? STRIPING IS COOL, AND SO IS ANYTHING ELSE THAT MY DYE BUDDY COOKS UP!
Would you be interested in a wool blend sock yarn (nylon, tencel, silk,
acrylic, alpaca, etc.)? LOVE TENCEL BLENDS, ANYTHING WITH A LITTLE STRETCH IS FINE, LIKE COTTON WITH NYLON, OR WOOL. MACHINE WASHABLE WOULD BE JUST AWESOME.
Imagine the perfect colorway. What would you name it? HRM, HARD TO SAY. HAVE BABY BOOKS ON THE BRAIN, SO PROBABLY - THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR OR GOODNIGHT MOON.
What was the biggest appeal to you for joining this dye-along? I WAS ALWAYS CURIOUS ABOUT WHAT COLORWAYS I COULD CREATE BUT DISMISSED IT AS TOO MUCH MESS AND PREPARATION. THEN THIS SWAP CAME AROUND AND I REALIZED THAT IF I DIDN'T JOIN, I WOULD NEVER TRY IT!
Have you dyed yarn/fiber before? NO
Do you spin? NO
Have you knit socks before? UMM, ONE...BUT THE FIRST OF MANY TO COME HOPEFULLY.
Do you use sock yarn for just socks or in other patterns too? I MAY TRY A BIT OF LACE WITH THE SOCK YARN FOR A SCARF OR SHAWL.
What are some of your favorite yarns? I LOVE MY STASH. I HAVE SOME ROWAN WOOL COTTON THAT I CAN'T WAIT TO USE AND SOME NORO LILY.
What yarn do you totally covet? SOCKS THAT ROCK RUBY MERINO/TENCEL SEDUCTION
Favorite patterns? DEBBIE BLISS for kids, and I am partial to things knit in the round.
Any pattern you would love to make if money and time were no object? Maybe one of the coats from Debbie Bliss Book 6, or something from Naturally Noro Jane Ellison. I have a cardigan/coat obsession that I don't quite understand since it's usually nice weather out here in California. Maybe one of those ridiculously expensive Colinette AbFab afghans.
Favorite kind of needles (brand, materials, straights or circs, etc)? Circs! I use INOX (PRYM) or Addis.
If you were a specific kind of yarn, which brand and kind of yarn would
you be? Something machine washable and practical, but with a little bit of color and fluffiness, like Knitpicks Crayon, but stretchier.
Do you have a favorite candy or mail-able snack? I like tea in foil packs :) I'm a crazy tea drinker, like 10 cups a day.
What’s your favorite animal? my dog Buddy.
Do you have pets? What are their species/names/ages? Buddy is maybe 5 or 6 (not sure, the rescue didn't know) and he is half lab, half german shepherd.
If you were a color what color would you be? sunshine yellow.
Describe your favorite shirt (yours or someone else’s).. something that doesn't wrinkle, but still breathes.
What is your most inspiring image, flower, or object in nature? I am partial to water, ocean vistas.
