Summer of Yarn Love Swap

1. Do you knit or crochet? How long have you been at your craft?
Knit. I tried to crochet, I'm not very good at it. I learned to knit in high school, but I have been actively knitting for about three years.
2. Do you spin? What type of spinning?
3. What are your favorite yarns/fibers? What are your least favorite yarns/fibers?
I like many things. I'm a big fan of yummy soft yarns. Not so much with the scratchy.
4. What are your favorite colors? What are your least favorite colors?
I'm a huge fan of blues and greens. Oranges and yellows are trickier - there are those I love and those that are not for me.
5. Are there any yarns/brands that you are dying to work with but never have?
I think the only big one I have left (that I know of...) is Malabrigo. But I'm sure there's lots I haven't tried yet.
6. What is/are your favorite types of projects to knit/crochet?
I'm on a scarf/shawl kick right now. But I am a big distracted knitter, so who knows.
7. What are you currently working on? Anything you plan to work on this summer?
Heh. See above. I have a shawl, a top, a blanket, and some other things I'm ignoring. Plans for more shawls, tops, and whatever else strikes my fancy.
8. What is your favorite FO? (Post a pic if you would like.)
I'm really proud of the Dark Victory sweater because it got the you knit that? response. And there's the Parthenope, my first gigundo lace.
9. What is your oldest UFO?
Are we countin gthe first scarf I cast on for that involved three kinds of acrylic and sparkly fun fur? Not sure why I never finished that...

Hairpin lace. I have a loom and I've noodle with it a bit.
