Fall Felted Bag Exchange Questionnaire

  1. How long have you been knitting or crocheting? How did you learn? or from whom? i learned how to knit last October from a friend of mine. we were at a knitting meeting and she taught me to finally cast off! and she was drunk, which made it that much funnier and easier to learn - save the few times she elbowed me in the head...
  2. What was your first felted object, and why did you decide to try felting? i have not tried felting yet, but after participating in ITEIV and seeing all the gorgeous felts, i really want to give it a go
  3. What are your favorite colors? Any you hate? love: pink, blue, green, yellow, orange. love combos: pink/green, orange/blue, pink brown.
  4. What are your favorite styles\types of bags? (Long straps? Short handles? Handbags? Totes? Embellished? Plain? Include links to patterns or photos if you’d like – give your pal an idea of what you enjoy!) www.verabradley.com - i love bright colors! i prefer longer handles to short so i can put them on my shoulder and not constantly be pushing them back up. i like a lot of pockets - inside and out, and pretty embellishments are a bonus!
  5. What handbag or bag are you carrying today? Do you use a separate bag to carry your knitting? I am currently switching between a few of my Vera Bradley bags. they're all very colorful and depending on my size needs depends what i use. i normally throw my knitting into the same bag i am using.
  6. What other things do you enjoy knitting or crocheting? i've made a bunch of scarves for myself, friends and different exchanges. plus there's a few blankets on my needles that never seem to end!
  7. What sort of needles do you enjoy working with? i love my bamboo straight needles! i bought some size 2 metal circ's for socks, but have not used them yet.
  8. What’s one project you’ve not yet tried but are dying to make? a sweater or some other tailored article of clothing
  9. What’s one yarn you’ve not yet tried but are dying to work with? something expensive? lol i don't really have yarn envy
  10. What other hobbies do you have? Do you spin? Sew? Garden? beading, mosaics, reading... and being an MBA student
  11. Besides yarn, do you collect anything? i collect funky beads that will eventually be made into jewelry. also frog stuff, and Vera Bradley bags (hehe)
  12. What kind of goodies do you enjoy? Sweets? Salty? Anything you hate or are allergic to? the only thing i am completely allergic to are mangoes. i don't eat sweets anymore, so that would kinda be a waste. the only snack-y food i eat now are dry roasted peanuts and almonds.
  13. Do you have any kiddos? (Furry kind count!) i have kitties!
  14. What kind of project best personifies you and why? i'm not completely sure.. i'm very creative overall but nothing tied to specific projects. i'm still learning new stitches so i guess something that allows me to do that.
  15. What is your favorite part of Autumn? You can also share a special Autumn memory if you'd prefer! watching the leaves fall! and the weather becoming cooler and knowing that it could snow in just a few months.
  16. Tell us 3 things you would do if you won 10 million dollars in the lottery. buy a house in the Outer Banks, NC; month-long caribbean cruise; not work and sit at home knitting and beading all day (which includes buying supplies!
