Knitting Me me
what is your all time favorite yarn to knit with?
Oh, but how does one pick a favorite, when it is virtually impossible to try every yarn out there!
But So Far Here's The List:
Debbie Bliss yarns hold a special place in my stash, along with Koigu, Blue Sky Alpaca, Rowan and anything else that catches my fancy. Don't forget the Mamma Snooze Handspun!
your favorite needles?
I have to say that Inox needles are my absolute favorite and Addi's come in at a close second. Don't get me wrong...wood needles have their place too!
the worst thing you've ever knit/crocheted?
A Hat that ended up more the size of a yarmulke than the intended size (it was for my dad and he graciously accepted it and never wore it or mentioned it again)
your most favorite knit pattern? (maybe you don't like wearing it...but it was the most fun to knit)
OSW from Glampyre... I will be making a long sleeve tweaked version soon!
most valuable knitting technique?
Patience. The patience to see the pattern through.
best knit book or magazine?
Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Anything Zoe Mellor and Debbie Bliss.
I love Interweave Knits and I like Cast On For technique!
your favorite knit-a-long?
I must say that Sockapal2za has been my favorite so far.
your favorite knitblogs?
Boy there are lots of them...check out the sidebar...but here are my daily reads:
Knit and Tonic
To Knit Perchance to Dream
Rhymes with Orange
your favorite knitwear designer?
Anything really that catches my eye. I love Nancy Bush's socks.
the knit item you wear the most? (how about a picture of it!)
I must say that anything I have really liked I seem to have given away. I love the knits that I have made for Gracie!
Let's tag Mamma Snooze, Katy, Dorothee, Keri, and Catherine
