A few of my favorite things

I am not a picky person. I just like to be surprised and to get things that make me smile. I hope this helps my spoiler.

* Knit or crochet or both?
I have been crocheting for two years now and started to learn to knit this past Winter but I haven't gotten too far since I cannot find my knitting supplies.

* Brands you would like to try but don't have easy access to
I am not too picky on brands because I don't really know too many. has been my best friend lately.

* Favorite fibers/least favorite fibers
I love soft fibers. I don't have any particular favorites, but I love trying new blends.

* Favorite colors/least favorite colors
My favorite colors are all shades of purple and blue, but I love all colors.

* Yarn weight preferences
I don't have any preferences to weight but I do ask that you send a pattern with it. I am horrible at making choices for patterns for the yarn I have lying around.

* Favorite projects
I enjoy making scarves and bags, but I like trying new patterns for different things. I love making earrings and other jewelry. I am always open to trying new crafts.

* Favorite designers
Ann Kingstone, but I have a long way to go before I can do her designs.

* Salty or Sweet or...?
I love it all except licorice flavors and I am not that big into candy. I love chocolate, trail mix, and well more chocolate. My favorite things that I cannot get here are starcrunches.

* Tea or Coffee or...?
I love fruit teas and hot chocolate.

* Allergies
I don’t have any, but my hubby and my son are allergic to cats.

* Other things you like, i.e., buttons, pens, fabric, stitchmarkers, etc.
Fun buttons and beads are always useful. The only bead shopping I do is online, so I love getting new beads and other jewelry supplies. I love notebooks and journals. I love reading, cooking, photography, dancing, and playing games with my family. I picked the kits I did because I thought they would be fun choices for me and my 2 yr old house elf.

*Favorite Games
I love Skip Bo, Imagine if, Guess Who, and games you play with a regular deck of cards ( War, speed, etc.) A game to play with a toddler would be nice.

*Favorite Critters
I love cats of any kind. I like butterflies, dragonflies, and lady bugs. My little house elf loves frogs, lizards, snakes, puppies, and owls.
