Spring Into Summer Dishcloth Exchange

Here's my questionnaire for the Summer Dishcloth Exchange (signs up are open until May 5th for those of you interested!).

1) When did you learn to knit? Who taught you? My Mom tried to teach me when I was a young child. I learned basic stitches and made a blanket for my dolly, but never stuck with it. I decided to get back in to it about 4 years ago and have been seriously knitting now for about 2 years.

2) What was your very first completed object? Your most recent? That blanket for my dolly… I’m guessing I was probably 7 or so. When I got back in to knitting it was a dishcloth. My most recent finished objects were a dishcloth for my Secret Pal and a DUDUZA Comfort Doll .

3) What was the very first thing you sent to the frog pond? (pulled out and started over) Your most recent? I don’t remember the first thing, but recently I frogged a capelet about 4 times before continuing on and finishing it up (and it still resulted in being too small!).

4) What is currently on the needles for you? A shaped scarf (100% native alpaca), a Booga bag (Noro), a second Duduza doll, a dishcloth (cotton), a couple of scarves… I always tend to have lots of UFO’s or WIP’s.

5) What types of needles do you enjoy working with? What have you tried and hated? I love Addi Turbo circs and bamboo DPNs. There’s nothing I really hate except maybe the old fashion metal needles that go clickity-clack, although the have their place with some yarns. I’d LOVE to get some Lantern Moon sox sticks to try!

6) Have you knit dishcloths before? Yes!
A) What was your favorite one? I made some face cloths for friends for Valentine’s Day that had a heart in the middle and used a gorgeous hand dyed chenille yarn.

B) Least favorite? Never really had a least favorite… all are fun!

7) Do you use homemade dishcloths or face cloths yourself, or give them as gifts, or both? Both, of course!

8) What are your favorite and least favorite scents? (For your body, such as soap/lotion/etc)
Favorites: Vanilla, Lavender, Pumpkin, Pomegranate, Green Tea, Ericka's Mow The Lawn soap (actually, I've yet to smell one of Ericka's soaps that I don't like!)

Least Favorites: Lilac, Rose, Clove, Grapefruit

9) What are your favorite colors? I love all shades of purple (light, deep, in between), blues, pinks and autumn colors

10) What colors (if any) are your bathroom and kitchen decorated in? My kitchen is a sage green color and my bathroom is lilac.

11) What other hobbies and crafts do you enjoy? I’m a beginning drop spindle spinner. I want to do some beading (stitch markers) soon.

12) Chocolate: Dark? White? Milk? Ew? YES!!!!! Milk and white.

13) Do you like salty treats? What kinds? Not a big salty treat fan, but I do love macadamia nuts, almonds & cashews (prefer lightly or no salted kinds). Also love chocolate covered pretzels and peanut butter stuffed pretzels!

14) If you could go anywhere in the world for one day and spend the day any way you wanted, where would you go and what would you do? I’d love to visit Hawaii, Australia, Ireland and Alaska. While I’m day dreaming, a nice realistic day would be hanging out without any housework to do, knitting, chatting & hanging with friends/family and good food and wine. Oh yea, and chocolate too!

15) Do you have any allergies? (Yarns, foods, etc. that might impact what your pal can send) Things from a non-smoking household please.
