Up for the Challenge...

This is the "Spring Into Summer" Dishcloth Swap I have joined. Sounds like fun!! check it out!
Yes, a first for me. I have heard so many knitters speak of "Swaps". They sound like fun and this particular swap is not intimidating for me. I have been afraid to make the commitment in the past, life gets in the way...Now I feel up for the challenge. I am really looking forward to participating...Here goes with the Questionnaire...

1. When did you learn to knit? Who taught you? I learned when I was about 8 or 10, my maternal Nana.
2. What was your very first completed object? A shawl for my Barbie. Your most recent? So many...Duduza Dolls...scroll down my blog for info!

3. What was the very first thing you sent to the frog pond? Sorry, don't remember the first but the latest was a baby blanket, three times! Can't seem to find just the right stitch---follow a pattern you say??!!
4. What is currently on the needles for you? Summer top for ME in "Breeze" Cotton blend, 18" doll clothes for a class I am teaching and again, Duduza Dolls.

5. What types of needles do you enjoy working with? I usually use Addi's, Clover or Bryspun. What have you tried and hated? The old style Aluminum, way to slick for me and cold in the winter!
6. Have you knit dishcloths before? Yes, many. What was your favorite one? For mindless knitting, Grandma's Favorite, I have even made GIANT ones as afghans and baby blankets...great basic pattern
Least favorite? Haven't found one yet
7. Do you use homemade dishcloths or face cloths yourself, or give them as gifts, or both? All of the above.
8. What are your favorite and least favorite scents? I LOVE Lilac, Lily of the Valley (For your body, such as soap/lotion/etc)Least, Lavender
9. What are your favorite colors? Greens and blues usually, I am in the process of painting our bathroom and I chose...Wisteria Mist, lovely and a new fav
10. What colors (if any) are your bathroom and kitchen decorated in? Bathroom--Wisteria with Navy accessories, Kitchen Grey walls, Red accessories.
11. What other hobbies and crafts do you enjoy? We live in a rural area and we have animals: chickens, sheep, dog, bunnies and parakeets, I love caring for them, I was a Floral Designer before I opened my yarn shop, hence my shop name,A Knitter's Garden, I love flowers and gardening.
12. Chocolate: Dark? White? Milk? Ew? Again, all of the above!!
13. Do you like salty treats? What kinds? Yes, Pecans, pistachios, chips, Chocolate covered pretzels!
14. If you could go anywhere in the world for one day and spend the day any way you wanted, where would you go and what would you do? I'd love to visit England, Ireland, Scotland, tour all the lovely old Castles and Cathedrals.
15. Do you have any allergies? (Yarns, foods, etc. that might impact what your pal can send) No penicillin please!! Ha Ha

Well, I guess I have answered all the questions...Let the Games Begin...Joanne
