Info for my secret pal

I can't seem to think creatively today so will use Marsha's two older questionnaires as guidelines about my likes and dislikes.

Non-knitting first:
At home I usually drink decaf coffee black (though will sometimes have high test before 2 p.m.). When I'm out, sometimes add Splenda and nonfat milk. At home I drink unflavored coffee. At Wawa, I often get Hazelnut if I'm adding Spenda and milk.

I also drink tea, but have enough for quite a few years to come.

I'm not into candles, bath products, etc.

My favorite music is classical, folk and "oldies but goodies."

I don't wear many scarves or hats, but do wear gloves and mittens.

I don't have an ongoing sweet tooth (only an occasional craving), but do love ice cream. I like my ice cream and other foods plain. I do like salty snacks such as chips and pretzels.

I like to wear fun earrings and rings.

I have two cats (Inky is 18 and Jessica is closing in on 15).

My birthday is in August (am a Leo).

Knitting related:
I posted my favorite colors as a comment to Marsha's question.

Except when I'm knitting for children, I prefer natural fibers like wool, silk, alpaca. My favorite yarn is Koigu and I like to blend their colors (like with mill ends).

I don't have a favorite thing to knit. Like most things in my life, I like variety. Since I'm on the go a lot, I like to take small things (such as socks) when traveling.

I don't like straight needles, only circulars or double-pointed. I have a hanging canvas gizmo for the circulars and keep the double pointed ones in three-hole punched plastic bags in a loose leaf binder.

There's nothing I have a burning desire for right now.

Hopefully, this will help my secret pal.

Cool! It works. So I can now ask my SP specific questions, yes?

So, Gina, what's your dearest $30 knitting desire right now?? If you can't think of anything, I'm happy to surprise you, but just in case, I thought I'd give you a chance to write that letter to Santa.

Thanks Ruth! Yes, this is very helpful indeed!

D'oh! I just noticed that someone left a question here for me!

Gah...this is

Dear Santa:

I love everything. Thanks! Bye!


hahaha, only kidding.

Well I'd like to try knitting socks on 2 circulars. So I was going to get some 24" Addi Turbos in size 2. But that's such a boring gift/wish!

So basically what I am saying is...surprise me!

Also, nobody has ever given me a hand-knitted gift! Isn't that weird? So I would LOVE to be the recipient of anything one of you guys knit. So keep that in mind too!

Hope that helps a little. Sorry to be so vague! :-)

Nice list Ruth. It's so fun getting to know everyone better, isn't it?
