Some Q's answered: A bit o me revealed!

1.) How long have you been knitting?
Just about 2 and a half years ago. I was in the process of going through my state exams and my mom taught me the easy fuzzy scarf to keep me busy and stress free.

2.) How long have you been knitting socks?
This coming sept will be 2 years. I so love knitting socks, they are one easy thing for me to take to work and do when it is slow.
3.) What do you do with a problem like Maria? Hmmmm, an ant hill, some honey...

4.) What is your all time favorite sock yarn? I do not have just one, i seriously like trying new yarns and blends as this is half the fun!

5.) Toe Up or Cuff Down? I am still on my first toe up, so as of now i must say, cuff down.

6.) What's your favorite color (this week or for all time)? I love greens and purples but admit to loving turquoise and brown together and purple and orange combo.

7.) Do you have a pet(s)? i have a good old golden retiriever, Ocean Myst and a kitty who adopted us Stalker Kitty

8.) Babies: Oven Roasted or Barbecued?

Lol, bar b que'd!

9.) Besides socks what is your favorite type of thing to knit?
i have been really enjoying lace patterns and fingerless gloves as of late!

10.) What's your favorite scent? I am around scents all day in the spa. My fav's are vanilla, and citrus , fruity scents. They wake you up!

11.) What music are you really loving right now? Like a song or a band? The Dresden Dolls

12.) How many pairs of socks have you hand knit?
About 23

13.) What's your favorite treat? Salty or Sweet? Lol, kettle Korn falls into both of those categories!

14.) What was the most interesting thing you smelled yesterday. Not good or bad necessarily, just the thing that stuck out most so that you actually took notice of it. A dessert dip a friend brought over to nibble on. Very rich! it was a blend of cream cheese and brown sugar, i think that was it but it smelled like a heavenly birthday cake when blended with a bit of apple or strawberry!

15.) Needles - DPN's: Wooden, metal or plastic?
Usually wooden

16.) What is your favorite sock pattern that you've knit? What do you recommend?
The basic sock pattern i learned in the sock class i took.

17.) The last Question: If you were stuck on a deserted island who would you want with you, what knitting would you want with you and would you ever want to leave?

I'd want my honey, for a project though, a really big cotton throw of some kind, it would keep me busy and be useful after! I may never want to leave as i am also used to being away from others in the woods and love it! But can we have a sheep and a spinning wheel too?

Hahah love the sheep and spinning wheel idea. I'd want a horse too ;) (soo demanding?)

Thanks for stopping by my blog again. I haven't found an email to write you back, so I figured I'd just comment back ;)

Also love the sheep and spinning wheel answer! I'd take my honey as well and my golden retriever too and some sock yarn. If we were deserted a long time, I could frog the socks and reknit different sized socks and not be out of yarn, ever.
