I'm all sorts of happy! I have joined both SP10, and the Villes spring round of SPs!
Pretty good considering I haven't been involved in a SP swap before. I can't wait to find out who my SPS are! I just want to start lavishing them with awesome things! These are both going to be a blast!

~*~ The Secret Pal 10 Questionnaire ~*~

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?
ANSWER: I love soft! (I've mainly used acrylic/acrylic blends) Wool is heavenly! I am open to the many other fibers out there. I am starting to like crocheting with cotton.(for dishcloths) I'm just not seeing a big color selection here.
NOTE: I do not like novelty, as in eyelash, funfur, ect.

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?
ANSWER: I went out and bought a carousel 'pen' organizer.It didn't quite work out. So I'm using a zippered pen case.

3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced?
ANSWER: I started crocheting in 2003....what a year, lol! I took almost that to make my first ghan....I frogged it after I completed it the first time, and started over...I thought I did it wrong. It was supposed to be double crochet, but think I did half double, (not quite sure what the stitch was) and I was working in back loops........so it was fine, but, at the time I didn't know.
I am a crocheter..but would love to expand my knitting know how. When I was pregnant with my first daughter, I began knitting.(93) It became a WIP that my grand mother finished. She taught me the basics when I was little. She is now unable to give me any tips due to illness. (she is also overseas)
