I do not discriminate!

What do you carry your ‘on the go’ knitting in? Do you want something new?

To be precise a simple purple or pink pincushion that I could wear on my wrist.

Part Three: Living & Past-times

Where do you live in the UK? (General idea not address)


Have you always lived here, or did you grow up somewhere else?

I have lived here for many many years

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?

If you couldn’t go to a knitting group, what other kind of gathering would you go to? (book club, tea party, yoga class, jewelery class, etc.)

Film theory or theatrical make up would be top of the list

What’s your style? (elegant, traditional, glamourous, girly, natural, sporty, outgoing, etc.)

Mmmmm probably better ask people around me - oops you cant. Fluffily elegant in a non conventional way. One of my favourite items of clothing is a pink fluffy jacket for winter time, really like shrugs and platform shoes

Final Part:

Any allergies/preferences (fiber-wise or treat-wise)?

Not that I am aware of.

Anything we missed that you’d like your partner to know?

Not that I can think of!
