Secret Pal 4

1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer high- a and/natural fibers)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? Or is it all the same to you? I don't really like red heart supersaver b/c it's crappy but I haven't had any problems with the Lion brand I've used. I've really just started Knitting so I'm not a snob yet so if you wanna treat me feel free!
2. Do you spin? Crochet? I do know how to crochet but I don't do it that much since I've been KNITTING!!!! I'd like to learn spinning as my next venture
3. Do you have any allergies? (smoke, pets, fibers, perfume, etc.) Nope, well compazine but that's an anti nausea drug so I doubt you'll ever come across it as a giftLOL
4. How long have you been knitting? About 5 months or so.
5. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list? Yes I do I just have to link it to my blog and I'm not computer savvy so it may take a while.sorry
6. What's your favorite scent? (for candles, bath products etc.) cooking smells like cinnamon, sugar cookie, coconut, vanilla any combo like that too ya know vanilla cinnamon, vanilla orange, coconut pineapple etc. I do not like cinnamon apple!! Yuck please NO! and I'm a vanilla SNOB it can't smell waxy/fake if it's just vanilla!!!!.
7. Do you have a sweet tooth? HECK YEAH!!! YUMMY YUMMY CHOCOLATE GIMMIE MORE!!!
8. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? I like stamping (cards), sewing/quilting, candle making, anything with my hands really......but I have to admit knitting takes precedence over everything these days.
9. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD) My husband has an MP3 player in Iraq but I'm not sure if it will come back okay.. but my cd players all play rewriteable cds..
10. What's your favorite color? Or--do you have a color family/season/palette you prefer?
I'm attracted to bright colors! For clothing/wearables I'm always doing blues and greys this year though I've branched to pinks...but I like colors! Not to crazy about pastels
11. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets? 1 husband,2 daughters &1 crazy cat..LOL
12. What are your life dreams? (really stretching it here, I know) I'd like to someday know what I want to be when I grow up! I love working with my hands and I love coffee..I'd absolutely love owning my own coffee shop some day.

18. What do you think about ponchos? I like them but I'm super picky.. I like the pink diagonal stripped one on Princess Diaries 2 but I'm picky and only like the colors and stripes I didn't like the holey ness of it.. I'd want one with less holes. I just have to find that one with the right look. I'd like a bunch of them in different colors b/c they're good for nursing.
19. Do you prefer straight or circular needles? It depends on the project.

Hey...I was hoping you could mention the word "christian" a couple more times in your profile. And secondly, since you are so devout and must know that SpongeBob is gay...that according to some of your "christian" cronies.

I'm not ashamed to say the word Christian that's who i am.
spongebob is a cartoon not anything to be warped by people trying to prove their lifestyles. I have my own mind and I'm able to make my own decisions as weather I watch different shows I don't base my life or my Faith on what other people say! it's between my savior and me.
besides spongebog is a sponge and a kitchen one at that therefore he's not REAL
