I got answers!

Yes. I couldn't help it. I had to join another swap. I joined Scout's Knit Sock Kit Swap. Yep. I'm a joiner. (And possibly a sucker, but that's a story for another day). So here are my answers for my swap pal!

What are your favorite colors? Pinks, orange, green and blue

Are you a new sock knitter? How long have you been knitting socks? I've been knitting socks for about 15 months.

Do you prefer solid or multicolored yarn? I've knit more pairs in multicolored yarn, but I think solid looks really nice with the right pattern.

What fibers do you prefer in sock yarn? Wool & wool blends

Where do you usually knit socks? Everywhere!

How do you usually carry/store small projects? I have some small tote bags, and of course, the lovely ziploc.

What are your favorite sock knitting patterns? I really enjoyed the jaywalker pattern, and I'm loving the feather and fan pattern. I loved the p-word socks I knit for my sockapaloooza pal too.

What are your favorite sock knitting techniques? I've only done cuff down, heel flap socks.

What new techniques would you like to try? I'd like to try toe up, but I haven't been successful with that in the past.

Do you prefer circulars or dpns for sock knitting? I've only used DPNs and I have no desire to learn another way. What can I say, I'm boring.

What are some of your favorite yarns? I love me some Trekking. Lorna's Laces & Koigu are very nice as well.

What yarn do you totally covet? Socks that Rock. Along with the 1 million other sock knitters out there.

Any pattern you would love to make if money and time were no object? Hmmmm, I suppose some fancy fair isle pattern.

Favorite kind of needles (brand, materials, straights or circs, etc)? I really like my Susan Bates DPNs, but recently I've discovered Chiagoo bamboo needles (the 5 inch ones) and I love them.

If you were a specific kind of yarn, which brand and kind of yarn would you be? Boring, basic wool.

Do you have a favorite candy or mail-able snack? I love chocolate, but it's not mailable here in the summer. I love strawberry Starbursts and cherry pull & peel Twizzlers.

What’s your favorite animal? Elephant.

Do you have pets? What are their species/names/ages? I've got three dogs - Miles 1 1/2, Cassidy 7 & Rocky 13/14; and one cat - Cocoa 3.

If you were a color what color would you be? Pink.

Describe your favorite shirt (yours or someone else’s).. Black short sleeved 't' with a slight v-neck.

What is your most inspiring image, flower, or object in nature? The ocean.

Tell me the best quote you’ve ever heard or read. "You have to laugh at yourself, because you'll cry your eyes out if you don't."

Do you have a wishlist? Yep - on Amazon.

Sorry to bore the rest of you! :) More excitement to come this week, including everybody's favorite- new yarn!


  1. It's scientifically proven that joiners live longer. (Seriously. I've read the studies.) Go for it!

  2. Hey, we're all doing it. :)

  3. Jenn...this is totally unrelated but I wanted to let you know I got the package. Thank you so much! I owe ya' one!

  4. I wish that I could "join" more! :)
    Can't wait to see the new yarn!
