Secret Pal Questions:
To: my SP5
Here are my answers to the SP5 questions... you can always drop an annonymous comment on my blog if you need more info!
1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer higher quality and/or natural fibers)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? Or is it all the same to you?
Umm..yarn snob, kinda. I like natural fibers, but knit with Cotton Ease and Wool Ease b/c of the ease of care.
2. Do you spin? Crochet?
I don't spin... am afraid to add another addiction to the list. I do crochet...
3. Do you have any allergies? (smoke, pets, fibers, perfume, etc.)
No known allergies, but I smoke, so that should be thrown out there for a SP... but not around my wool.
