1. What is/are your favourite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?
I absolutely adore wool, merino, silk, bamboo, alpaca. And I hate artificial fibers, glitter yarns or fuzzy ones. The thinner the better.

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?
My needles and hooks are in a wooden box originally inteded for kitchen utensils.

3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced?
I first learnt to crochet (my granny taught me) when I was five years old. Knitting soon followed. I consider myself intermediate. I can survive any pattern (even the real tough ones) but I can't create my own patterns.

4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?
Not, yet.... But I'll try to create one soon. But on my blog, on the left hand-side, you can see the link to my book shelf - the knitting (and other crafts) books I already have.

5. What's your favorite scent?
Vanilla. I can't stand powerful scents - allergic.

6. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favourite candy?
Chocolate :) (I hate marzipan.)

7. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Do you spin?
Anything. Yes, I'm trying to learn to spin. I have a small loom, too. And I do like sewing even though I'm not any good at it.

8. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)
Yes, both cds and Mp3s. I like opera, musicals (Gershwin!), folk, jazz, jazzy rock. Jamie Cullum is from heaven :)

9. What's your favorite color(s)? Any colors you just can't stand?
I love green and red. I wouldn't ever wear or buy anything pink, rose, glittery, lilac, violet, beige.
