Keeping Cool in Summer Dishcloth Exchange

June 7, 2008 at 9:04 pm Leave a comment

I joined a swap!  This questionnaire is a little late.  Sorry!

Please post to your blog no later than the end of registration June 6th!

1. Do you Knit or Crochet? For how long? I knit and try to crochet.  I have been knitting for about 2.5 years and trying to crochet for a couple months.

2. Do you enjoy using metal, wooden, or some other kind of needle\hook?  Doesn’t really matter.  I like pointy tips, and I don’t really care for plastic with the exception of the Boye interchangeable set I inherited from my grandma.

3. What are your favorite types of yarn? Any you just can’t stand?  I like all different kinds of yarn.  I don’t really care for bulky ribbon yarns.  I’m on a lace yarn kick right now.

4. When it comes to cotton, are there any brands you’d love to try and haven’t? I’ve always wanted to try Henry’s Attic Pigtail cotton.  It doesn’t look like it would be necessarily fun to work with, but it looks like it would create great end results.

5. When you make Dishcloths, do you use them yourself, or tend to give them as gifts? So far, all for me.  I’m going to knit a couple for my mother-in-law since she loves doing dishes and cleaning.

6. Do you have a favorite color? Any that you dislike? My favorite colors are greens, reds, and purples.  I don’t have any that I particularly dislike.  I guess I don’t really care for beige.

7. What color(s) (if any!) are your kitchen and bath decorated in?  They are both decorated in brights.  My kitchen is more primary colors with red and orange, and my bathroom has more magenta, teal and lime green.  Actually, that’s the theme for my living room too.

8. What are your favorite scents around the house?  I clean with grapefruit scented cleaner, and I always love the smell of coffee brewing.

9. What is your very favorite thing about summer? There’s more stuff to do: play outside with the kids, going out on the boat, baseball games, parks & zoos.

10. What is your least favorite thing about summer?  The humidity and the mosquitoes.

11. Do you use soap or body wash in the shower?  In summer, soap.

12. What scents do you enjoy in the bath?  Citrus, calendula–nothing too perfumy.

13. What is your favorite dishcloth pattern?  tribble or slip stitch patterns

14. What sort of treats do you enjoy? Sweet or Salty?  Both.  I’m addicted to coconut.

15. Imagine today is one of the hottest days of the year – what do you do to keep cool? Or are you one of those folks who loves the hot weather?  Drag the kids to a highly air conditioned place like the mall or the library.

16. What sorts of hobbies do you enjoy besides knitting or crocheting?  spinning, dabble in sewing, and I planted a garden this year

17. Do you collect anything (besides yarn!)  postcards and fabric

18. Are you on Ravelry? If so, share your ID!  myhobbyisyarn

19. Do you have any allergies? no

20. Do you have any pets? no
