Fall Yarn Swap Q & A

Another three months of swapping!!! I cannot wait to get my partner.

Do you knit or crochet? How long have you been at your craft? I do both. I really enjoy knitting but I am a much faster crocheter. I tend to make clothing when I knit and more craft items when I crochet.
Do you spin? What type of spinning do you do? I do some light spinning. I just haven't had the time lately. I have two spindles and some roving. No need to add anything at this time.
Are there any other crafts that you participate in? If someone figures out how to add about 8 to 10 hours to my day, sure.
What are your favorite yarns/fibers? I really enjoy colorful cottons. They are so practical.Sometimes, I like to receive colors I wouldn't normally use, . It really pushes me to find new patterns and work on projects I would have never tried. I tend to like 2 to 4 ply yarns. I haven't gotten used to single ply/lace weight stuff yet.
What are your LEAST favorite yarns/fibers? Anything rough and devoid of color.
Are there any types/brands of yarn that you are dying to work with but haven’t gotten a chance? I would love to work with some colorful silk or mohair. I have a fun pattern that I would like to use to make mohair sleeves from the One Skein book by Leigh Radford. There are so many cool patterns in here. It's going to be really tough to give that one back to the library.
What are your favorite types of projects to knit/crochet? I like to knit things to wear and am more crafty with my crocheting (bags, amigurimi, etc)
What are you currently working on? Anything you plan to start this autumn? I am currently working on a shawl from Runway Knits, a shrug from Lion Brand that is all st st (soooo boring) and I will start some baby booties this week for a friends baby.
What is your favorite FO? (Please, post a picture if you would like.) So far it is an accessories pouch that I finished from the One Skein book that I mentioned earlier. I had some Cascade paints that I got from my Summer of Yarn partner that I was having the hardest time finding a pattern for. Well I crocheted the pouch for a swap and now I want to make ten more.
What is your oldest UFO? That stockinette stitch shrug. I get through 4 stitches and hate it all over again. It should be done by 2015 sometime.
Are their any knitting/crochet techniques that you would like to learn? I want to learn more about lace projects and cableing. I also need some small dpns(0s, 1s, 2s)eat sock yarn I got during the SOY swap.
Are you a sock knitter? What are your foot measurements? Size 7.5, feel silly measuring my foot. Will I regret not doing it later?
Do you have a yarn winder and/or a swift?
Where/how to you keep you needles/hooks? I made myself a knitting needle roll.
Do you collect anything? Knitting needles, crochet needles, soft colorful yarns and fabric.
What is your favorite type of music? Are you MP3 ready? I like all music with a good beat and cannot live without my ipod.
Do you like sweets? What are your favorites? ALL. YES!! I am big into gummy items. Gummy bears, swedish fish. I also love butter cookies.
What is your living situation like? Any pets? Children? One fiance who came equipped with two children and an outdoor cat.
Are you allergic to anything? Cats
Do you have an online wish list (Amazon, Etsy, Loopy Ewe, etc.)? Please include links for your swap pal.
Are you having a birthday during this swap? No.
What is your Ravelry ID? britnlind
