Cabe's Questionnaire

Part One: Crafting
Do you knit, crochet, or both?

What do you like to make? Do you have a favourite project?
I'll have a stab at just about anything. Lace stoles and own design half-mitts seems to be the flavour of the moment.
Do you have a favourite type of fiber or brand of yarn?
Lana Grosa (Linea Rossa) Pashmina, but it is almost impossible to get here these days. Any good wool or alpaca.
Do you have a least favourite type of yarn?
Not much for manmade stuff and novelty yarns.
Do you do any other crafts?
Spinning, some tatting, pottery, dibs and dabs of almost everything. ^^
What knitting do you bring ‘on the go’?
Socks and scarfs.
What do you carry your ‘on the go’ knitting in? Do you want something new?
Pocket and no thanks.
Are there any knitting gifts (book, toy, yarn, item, tool) that you have been lusting over?
Does needle-nosed pliers for stitch-counters count? ^^ (No - they're too heavy (postage!)) Nothing I could ask for here.

Part Two: Your Favourites
What is your favourite colour?

Dark Grey. (Also like Blue, dark Red, Black, Orangy-Yellow)
What is your least favourite colour?
Definitely pink. Canna be dealing with it.
What scents/smells do you like? What don’t you like?
Not into any scents.
How do you like to pamper yourself? (bubble bath, hand creams, massage, manicure)
More yarn! :-) None of these. My treats tend to be active ones (cliff-scramble, gym and sauna, bike-outing)
What goodies to you like to treat your tummy with? (chocolate, biscuits, truffles, etc. )
No help there either. Fruit. Not into sweets.
Do you prefer tea or coffee while you knit? Any particular kind? Favourite mug/cup
Tea-o-holic. Plain unsweetened teas (Green, Rooibos, unflavoured black). Cylindrical mugs - simple beer steins are quite good as they are big and resistant to the cat overturning them.
Do you listen to/watch anything while you knit? (TVshow-Along, movies, music, podcasts)
Who-dunnits on tv or audio-book.

Part Three: Living & Past-times
Where do you live in the UK?

Have you always lived here, or did you grow up somewhere else?
I've mostly moved country every seven years or so. Many countries.
If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Remote island somewhere with good Internet connection and great diving.
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.)
Climbing-wall!, Yoga, Tai-chi, Pottery-class. Just about any class - love learning new things.
What’s your style? (elegant, traditional, glamourous, girly, natural, sporty, outgoing, etc.)
Practical for everyday life, elegant for the times we go out.

Final Part:
Any allergies/preferences (fiber-wise or treat-wise)?
No allergies.
Anything we missed that you’d like your partner to know?
I'm sure there is. Nothing i can think of now, of course...
