SP11 contest answers

I have the pleasure of being part of Heatherly's group for Secret Pal 11 and she has given us these questions to answer, so here it goes......

1. What is the one knitting accessory you could not live without?
Beautiful handmade stitchmarkers - great jewelry for your knitting always makes me smile, even when I'm having a friggin' knitting kind of day! I'm also really loving those new ponytail holder looking thingy-ma-bobs that are out for DPNs now - I can toss my socks in my bag without worrying about stitches falling off!

2. If you're heading on vacation, do you take knitting with you? If so, how much and what type of project?
Why yes, of course! Usually I bring something small, lately its been my current socks in progress. Sometimes I'll bring a hat or fingerles gloves or something else that's easily portable to work on while on the plane, in the airport, in a car, etc.

3. Where have you travelled to that you'd consider your favorite spot?
Charlotte, NC - we go every year for a week in May and try to get back here and there later in the year when we can. Love it down there - great area, great people, great food, lots to see & do... and oh yea, NASCAR too! We're going next week for the Patriots pre-season game! GO PATS!

4. What is your favorite knitting book at the moment? Do you own it?
One Skein Wonders - love it and its many patterns perfect for quick gifts! I met the editor last month and can't wait for the 2nd installment to come out this fall! I'm also currently enjoying Mary Beth Temple's "The Secret Language of Knitters" (I met her the same day at TKGA).

5. Do you listen to podcasts? Which is your favorite(s)?
I really should listen to more podcasts, but I just don't have the time. The only one I make it a point to always listen to is Sleepy Eyes Knitting podcast, which has been on a bit of a hiatus but I bet Gina will be bringing us a new installment very soon!

Podcasts. I have no speakers at work, so that will be something for home. Hmmm... sounds like a fun thing for this weekend.

Hi Nichole!
Speaking of stitchmarkers...are you ever making more, say, like black lab dogs????

I don't even know what a podcast is. Should I have admitted that?
