New Swap!! - Favorite Colors Questionnaire

For the next Stop Swap round (rav link)

  • Do you knit or crochet? How long have you been at your craft? Knit and I'd guess 4-5 years, but I'm not sure. 
  • Do you spin? What type of spinning do you do? I don't. :( 
  • Are there any other crafts that you participate in? Some beadwork,some painting/sketching, nothing really very often though. Mostly I knit when I find the time.
  • What are your favorite yarns/fibers? Wool, Silk, Alpaca, Anything malabrigo makes... I love Malabrigo
  • Are there any yarns/fibers that you don’t like? I'm not a huge fan of cottons -- but I've seen a few recently I like more and I really don't like to use acrylics unless it's an absolute need
  • What is your favorite color? That's an excellent question! Ummm... Right now I've really been into grey, off-white, peachy-light-pinks. I saw Black Swan and kind of fell in love with the whole "ballerina" look. So I've been wearing and using more light pinks, whites, peaches, off-whites, etc. and contrasting them with the dark charcoals and blacks. ------ I also love deep rich purples. I like almost every shade of pinks. I like cerulean blue. Kelly Green. Sunshine yellow. Coral. Turquoise. Teal.... I know. I SOOOOO answered this question well.
I was actually WAY into ballet as a kid before I got into swimming.
So I always love ballet, ballet movies, ballet-inspired clothes...
Picture is from a Swan Lake performance not Black Swan.
  • Are there any colors you don’t like? Poop colors. I'm not huge on yellows. I'm not a BIG pastel fan -- other than my new YAY! ballerinas thing. And I usually don't like neutrals, but I'm in love with them light now. (See above question re: ballerina + Black Swan)
  • Do you have a yarn winder and/or a swift? Both
  • Do you have a blog? You're reading it. ;)
  • Do you collect anything? Shot glasses, Washi tins for my teas and Starbucks cards
  • Do you like sweets? What are your favorites? Yes and no. I like lemon-y candies. I love thin wafer-y cookies. I like really GOOD chocolates. But I'm not really a big  sweets eater. Usually when I want a snack I eat pita chips + hummus or chips + guac, but that's not even too often. My idea of a snack is just a coffee or a tea. I love coffee and tea.
  • What is your living situation like? Any pets? Children? I joke that I live with 4 weiners and 4 balls... My bf, my brother, and the two dogs (both are fixed -- get the joke now?)
  • Are you allergic to anything? Melons, I'll also say bananas, mushrooms, and coconut because I loathe them that fiercely. AND I don't eat pork! Also I mostly keep kosher.
  • Is there anything else that you want your pal to know? No, but I'm glad to answer questions.
