No More Humdrum Mittens

October 11, 2007 at 6:05 am 2 comments

I signed up for the No More Humdrum Mittens swap that I found on Ravelry. It’s the first swap I’ve ever done that involves actually knitting something for someone else. That someone else is a knitter, too, so I had better do a good job 🙂 Actually, I am completely a process knitter, so this way I can knit mittens and still have mittens! Registration is open until the 14th, so check it out! Here’s my questionnaire:

  1. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? I have been knitting for 2 years, and Cindi who works at the yarn store taught me how to knit.
  2. Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced? Fearless? I haven’t been knitting for long, but I know a lot of techniques.
  3. What are your favorite colors? Any you dislike? My fave colors are purples and greens and reds. I like pretty much every color.
  4. Do you like Latvian type patterns? If so, what are your favorite patterns? yes–I haven’t found any I don’t like!
  5. Do you desire mittens for yourself, your “special someone else” or your child? Me, me, me!
  6. What other things do you enjoy knitting? baby stuff, hats, small projects (except for socks)
  7. What sort of needles do you enjoy working with? (straights vs circs, bamboo vs aluminum) all except plastic
  8. What’s one project you’ve not yet tried but are dying to make? something light and lacey
  9. What’s one yarn you’ve not yet tried but are dying to work with? Even though I can’t seem to drag myself to complete a pair of socks, I see a lot of great sock yarn out there!
  10. What other hobbies do you have? Do you spin? Sew? Garden? Cook? I spin, dabble in sewing, I don’t cook much, because I don’t like doing dishes
  11. Besides yarn, do you collect anything? postcards, beads, foreign coins
  12. What kind of goodies do you enjoy? Sweets? Salty? Anything you hate or are allergic to? both–I hate cilantro and basil, so please don’t send me pesto.
  13. Do you have any kids? Pets? 2 kids–a 2 year old son and a 9 month old daughter no pets
  14. What is your favorite part of Winter? I like it when it snows at night, and the light reflects off of it and it’s kind of bright out. I also like going for walks when it’s snowing–nice snow not blizzard snow
  15. What is your least favorite part of Winter? the darkness and the slushy slop

    Hi! I either missed your last post or my bloglines missed you…it’s been kinda busy around here. We JUST finished that lovely bar of soap you sent, the tiniest shavings are left… I save them (but only for good handmade soaps) and one day may do something with them. Girly’s dress came out lovely. And I see they have a new pic on that pure and simple pattern-it’s a good one (the pic and the pattern). Not long ago I was thinking, how come I never see any fingerless Latvian mitten patterns, and then I was browsing in the bookstore, and one of the new books (right now I can’t think which it is) has a fingerless Latvian mitt pattern!
