Secret Pal 10

After a few months of stand-by envy of those who joined SP9 I'm now throwing myself into SP10. I want yaaaarn!

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?

To put it simple, I love natural fibres and detest synthetics and acrylics. And I hate multicoloured, self-striping yarn!

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?

Umm… plastic bags and glass jars? (Yes, this is a problem area.)

3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced?

I’ve knit on a regular basis for ten years, but manically only for about two or three. My mum taught me the basics in my early teens. I’m probably an intermediate knitter.

4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?


5. What's your favorite scent?

Freshly baked cinnamon rolls...

6. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favorite candy?

I’m not very fond of candy. But of course, chocolate is always nice…

7. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Do you spin?

I sew, spin, cut, paste…

8. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)

Mostly jazzier music. Mp3’s are not a problem.

9. What's your favorite color(s)? Any colors you just can't stand?

When looking at my FO’s, it seems to be lilac. If it’s not lilac, it’s blue/green. I’m kind of sick of lilac now. I don’t like bright colours, I’d rather like them to be a bit dusty.

10. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets?

I’m in a relationship but currently on my own, since my boyfriend is doing his internship abroad this semester. No pets.

11. Do you wear scarves, hats, mittens or ponchos?

Not ponchos, but the rest, yes.

12. What is/are your favorite item/s to knit?

Semi-small things.

13. What are you knitting right now?

Mittens, a short-sleeved top and wristwarmers.

14. Do you like to receive handmade gifts?


15. Do you prefer straight or circular needles? Bamboo, aluminum, plastic?

Circular and bamboo or plastic, but not metal. Slippery.

16. Do you own a yarn winder and/or swift?


17. How old is your oldest UFO?

Very old.

18. What is your favorite holiday?


19. Is there anything that you collect?

Apart from yarn? Earrings.

20. Any books, yarns, needles or patterns out there you are dying to get your hands on? What knitting magazine subscriptions do you have?

I don’t have any subscriptions and I’m planning on getting part 2 and 3 of Vogue’s stitchionary. I’d love to have more circular bamboo needles and bamboo dpn’s (I only have 2.5 and 3 mm), and I’d also like to try bamboo yarn at some point. And I’ve glanced at Rowan’s Vintage Knits for years…

21. Are there any new techniques you'd like to learn?

Not that I can think of right now, but probably. Intarsia maybe.

22. Are you a sock knitter? What are your foot measurements?

I have learned to knit socks since my last SP round, when I was paired up with a manic sock knitter. It’s quite fun. My feet are 25 cm.

23. When is your birthday?

10 Aug.


Så då får man ser mer av dig på bloggen igen? Roligt!!!
