Secret Pal 5- Who are you??

I never found out who my spoiler was. I wanted to tell them thank you for making this a pleasurable experience for me. So whoever you are at there- thank you soo much.

The person I got to spoil is Cathi from And she is awesome. She is sooo very cool. She makes me want to be a better knitter. Not just a better knitter- a fun, totally cool, oh so creative knitter. I've enjoyed getting to know her through her blog and her knitting circle of awesome people. Once the hectic part of starting a career subsides, I'm going to burn some knitting rubber. Actually, I think I'm going to knit about 5 rows tonight. Maybe I'll even get to another dropped stitch. I am inspired!!

Okay, I'm signed up for SP6. I'm so excited to spoil someone else. Here is my questionnaire.

1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer higher quality and/or natural fibers)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? Or is it all the same to you? Most yarns are new to me. So I'm into trying new things- just not the Fun Fur type yarns. They are itchy and tickle my skin and I don't like that. As long as it's soft- I'm kewl.

2. Do you spin? Crochet? Nope, not yet... Crochet- I'm trying to teach myself without much luck.

3. Do you have any allergies? (smoke, pets, fibers, perfume, etc.) I don't, but my kids so and they are little- they are allergic to pets and outdoor stuff like pollen,etc.

4. How long have you been knitting? Almost a year

5. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list? No, but I can prepare one if you'd like. :)

6. What's your favorite scent? (for candles, bath products etc.) Lavendar-Vanilla

7. Do you have a sweet tooth? Butterfinger Crisps!!! I loooove them.

8. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Making invitations, stuff for my classroom as the need arises, cooking/baking

9. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD) I like ALL kinds of music. Not much into country though- but everything else. Oh- no rap or POP music. It's sounding the same to me. Yes, my computer/stereo plays MP3s.

10. What's your favorite color? Or--do you have a color family/season/palette you prefer? Any colors you just can't stand? Purple- all shades, Black, Blues, Greens.

11. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets? Married for 5 years- 2 kids- my son is almost 3 years old and daughter just turned 1. No pets due to kids' allergies

12. What are your life dreams? (really stretching it here, I know) I'm doing it. I'm teaching kindergarten and have a great family. I eventually would like to stay home once the kids become around 10 years old. And LOTS of traveling

13. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? Anything soft and practical.

14. What fibers do you absolutely *not* like? Fun fur stuff- eyelash,etc.

15. What is/are your current knitting obsession/s? Shawls, the Weekend Satchel Bag from IK (haven't started yet), sweaters-even though I've never knitted one before.

16. What is/are your favorite item/s to knit? Things that go quick at the moment for instant gratification.

17. What are you knitting right now? Clapotis, Mariposa- been working on it forever, and I have a list of things that I WANT to knit but need to actually finish something first.

18. What do you think about ponchos? No way, Jose

19. Do you prefer straight or circular needles? I'm leaning more towards Circular

20. Bamboo, aluminum, plastic? Bamboo, plastic- not a big fan of aluminum

21. Are you a sock knitter? A beginner one- but yes a sock knitter

22. How did you learn to knit? Taught myself

23. How old is your oldest UFO? 6 months

24. What is your favorite animated character or a favorite animal/bird? I like dogs- puppies and penguins

25. What is your favorite holiday? Thanksgiving

26. Is there anything that you collect? Cookbooks, Knitting books

27. What knitting magazine subscriptions do you have? none at the moment

28. Any books out there you are dying to get your hands on? Nope.

29. Any patterns you have been coveting, but haven't bought for one reason or another?? There are probably alot- it's all still new to me, but the romantic feminine type stuff.

ETA: 30. What are your foot measurements, and what kind of socks do you like? all kinds of socks. What kind of foot measurements? I wear an 8 and a half.
