UK Swap

Part One: Crafting
Do you knit, crochet, or both? Both I'm a fickle girl!

What do you like to make? Mostly socks but also hats, scarves, children's stuff & more socks

Do you have a favourite project? Definitely socks

Do you have a favourite type of fiber or brand of yarn? Wool, especially hand-dyed sock yarn

Do you have a least favourite type of yarn? Scratchy acrylics and bobbly yarns

Do you knit in public? If so where do you like knitting and what is your "portable" project?
What do you carry your "portable" knitting in? I knit at any available opportunity. I always have a sock project on the go usually in my handbag which I whip out and work on when the opportunity presents itself.

Are there any knitting gifts (book, toy, yarn, item, tool) that you have been lusting over? I'm always up for sock yarn! Lusting after the new CatBordhi new pathways book and chic knits for little kids.

Part Four: The Theme

The fabulous farmhouse we stayed in a couple of years ago in southwest france. The smell of lavender, the fields of sunflowers, the smelly cheese, the relaxation, the steamy sunshine, the fine food and good company. The faded blue that all the shutters are painted in the area and the lovely stone.... sigh... I want to go back there.

Final Part:
Any allergies/preferences (fiber-wise or treat-wise)? None

Anything we missed that you’d like your partner to know? Can't think of anything
