Are you crafty?
Yes, but only about certain things. I like fiber crafts better than papercrafts.

Would you enjoy things like: Buttons, ribbons and embellishments?
Not especially at the moment.

Do you dye your own wool?
I have done this before and enjoyed it immensely :)

Do you like to scrapbook or make homemade cards?
No, not anymore.

What are your favorite scents?
I love scents :) Mint, lilac, apple, mandarin orange

Do you like stationary and cards?
I collect them but then forget to use them.

Do you like to sew or embroider items?
Not my thing, sorry :)

Do you like beads?
Yes! I do like to make myself bracelets, hair ornaments, etc.

What kind of candy do you like?
Milk or white Chocolate (not dark), party mints, peanut brittle, and caramels.

Do you like hand lotions or soaps?
Hand lotions - my hands are very dry and sometimes catches on the yarn.

Do you like to wear costume jewelry? Necklace, earrings, bracelets etc. ?
Bracelets , yes. I have pierced ears, but cannot remember the last time I wore earrings. Necklaces are nice, but they need to be longer -about 18".

Do you like to make/or use stitch markers?
I use them, but like the utilitarian plastic rings I have.

Do you collect anything?
I'm sure my DH would tell you I collect everything, but it just isn't so! I like coloured pens, bookmarks, and chapsticks.

Do you have any allergies?: Smoke, food, fiber, pets, etc.
I'm very allergic to smoke.

Do you have any hobbies?
Other than knitting? I love reading, baking, and playing with my daughter.

Do you like scented or unscented candles?
Scented :) Are you a fiber snob? Yes and no. I don't care to knit with 100% acrylic because it is squeaky... but I do like acrylic/wool blends like Wool Ease and Plymouth Encore. I like soft wool, and would be very interested to make something with an acrylic/rayon blend.

Do you like to play cards or board games?
Yes, I do - I'm trying to teach my daughter, too.

Do you like neon colors, pastel, light or medium ranges in the colorof the month?
My favourite greens? Lime, apple, forrest, sage... pretty much anything other than olive or kelly.

Do you like kitchen magnets or key rings?
My daughter loves all kitchen magnets - but I don't have much need for key rings.

Do you like picture frames?
Not much use for them...

What else can I add? I like spice mixes, regional foods, coffee, and hairclips/hair bands.
