UK Swap Questionnaire

Well as I'm sponsoring the UK Swap for the UK Swap group on Ravelry, and possibly co-hosting, I thought I should probably sign up and do my questionnaire ;)

Part One: Crafting

Do you knit, crochet, or both? Knit!

What do you like to make? Lace, socks, well anything actually!

Do you have a favourite project? No! (Sorry!)

Do you have a favourite type of fiber or brand of yarn? I particularly like natural fibres, apart from that I'm a sucker for just about everything!

Do you have a least favourite type of yarn? Well I don't like acrylic for garments etc, (it has it's place though - I'm no snob here ;) )

Do you do any other crafts? Spinning, jewellery making, photography, drawing, sewing, painting, weaving.. amongst other things ;)

What knitting do you bring ‘on the go’? Socks, or fingerless mitts, maybe a hat. But mostly socks.

What do you carry your ‘on the go’ knitting in? Anything to hand!

Do you want something new? Who doesn't.. sorry that's not helpful is it.. ok, can I ask for an alpaca? Ok ok I'll be sensible, can I have a wensleydale sheep then?

Are there any knitting gifts (book, toy, yarn, item, tool) that you have been lusting over? Errrrrr well mostly expensive things, you know like those lovely glass needles and stuff. I'll have a think while I write the rest of this!

Part Two: Your Favourites

What is your favourite colour? Purple

What is your least favourite colour? Orange and green (pea green that is, turquoise and dark greens are lovely)

What scents/smells do you like? I don't like anything heavily scented, it usually gives me a headache :( but if it's very mild I like musk and vanilla.

What don’t you like? Oops, I said it above didn't I..

How do you like to pamper yourself? (bubble bath, hand creams, massage, manicure) Actually I sit down and do my knitting or play world of warcraft! I don'd do baths, massages, manicures, creams, or anything like that (very sad I know!)

What goodies to you like to treat your tummy with? (chocolate, biscuits, truffles, etc.) *siiiiiigh* (that was a dreamy sigh) Truffles... you know like the viennese ones from Thornton's? I love things like that. Love fruit and nut, white choc, fondant filled choc (the ones with the most cals in usually), and a good sunday roast :p

Do you prefer tea or coffee while you knit? Tea tea tea! I love tea! Fruit tea and normal Twinings... yum!

Any particular kind? Oops did that again...

Favourite mug/cup? Eeyore mugs (I have a few), and my snowman teapot/mug

Do you listen to/watch anything while you knit? (TVshow-Along, movies, music, podcasts) I *always* have music on, I love listening to Radio 2, and I occasionally watch TV when I'm home - usually for a movie.

Part Three: Living & Past-times

Where do you live in the UK? (General idea not address) Lancashire

Have you always lived here, or did you grow up somewhere else? Nope, I'm a proper Lancashire Lass. I have spent 4 years in Dundee though and become very attached to it!

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go? I'd go everywhere! Particularly Iceland and Norway.

If you couldn’t go to a knitting group, what other kind of gathering would you go to? (book club, tea party, yoga class, jewelery class, etc.) Dance classes, spinning class.. Actually I'd just stay in and knit mostly.

What’s your style? (elegant, traditional, glamourous, girly, natural, sporty, outgoing, etc.) Eclectic. Sorry I know that's not helpful. If I tell you my hobbies you might get the general gist - I dance, shoot (with a shotgun or rifle), sew, knit, do photography, play world of warcraft, go to the gym, love my dogs..... Eurgh this is hard. Ok, I'll try and help you out a bit more. I'm not girly at all. But apart from that my style just about encompasses everything. *Tears hair out* You'll just have to guess, sorry!

Final Part:Any allergies/preferences (fiber-wise or treat-wise)? Nothing really smelly, I'm allergic to penicillin so no antibiotics please if you were thinking of sending some :p

Anything we missed that you’d like your partner to know? I feel sorry for the person who's got me, I must be a nightmare. Oh and I still haven't thought of any small knitting gadgety type things that don't cost loads.
