Blogiversary Part II…

Are you ready for another way to WIN?

Well, I’m a naturally curious person… I get to meet all these wonderful loomy ladies (with a few guys sprinkled in) without ever having met them, or spend time in person at their house, eating pizza, or party cake…

So, inquiring minds want to know!  😉  This is what you do…

If you have a blog, you can copy and paste the questions below into a post…all filled out with your answers, of course.  Then make sure to link back to here, inviting others to participate in the party.  Leave a comment here to let me know that you’ve completed your post.  This will also let everyone know to go look at your blog to read your answers…kind of like a blog block party!  You will receive 2 entries for participating on your blog, and one for every person who comes to the party, and leaves their answers, with your name as the invitee! 

If you don’t have a blog…don’t fret!  You can answer the questions right here in the comments!  You will receive an entry for you and for any friend who you’ve invited to come and play…cool, huh?!  😀  Let the games begin!!!

  1. What was your age when you first discovered your love of yarn?  What (or who) was it that introduced you to all that fibery goodness?
  2. If you could sit down with anyone in the world to have a little knit along, who would it be?
  3. What is your favorite comfy place or position in which to work with yarn?
  4. Like our heroin in the story below, do you ever dream about soft fuzzy goodness?  Or how to do a particular technique you’d never thought of while awake?
  5. What type of loomer/knitter/crocheter are you?  Do you like long involved projects, or quickies full of fast satisfaction?
  6. Have you ever guiltily postponed dinner due to your involvement with a project?
  7. What is your ultimate goal in your yarn life? 
  8. Do you have a favorite snack you like to munch while working with yarn?
  9. What is your all time most favorite yarn tool/accessory that you absolutely could not live without?
  10. What is your favorite movie?
  11. What is your favorite book as an adult…and what was yours as a child?
  12. What are you working on right now with your yarn?
  13. Is there a special project that you’ve been just dying for someone (or yourself) to design?
  14. Did someone invite you to join in on the party today?

Don’t forget that the story continues…  It’s not too late to add to the drama of a Knitter in Need…  😉

  2. Sonja Lyles says:

    I was about 7 years old when I discovered my love for yanr. My grandmother shared her love of yarn with me.
    I would love to sit down with Isela to have a knit along.
    My favorite spot to curl up and loom is my lazy-boy recliner.
    Yes, I do have soft and fuzzy dreams of yarn and creating with yarn.
    I’m a bit of a beginner to looming. I want to loom knit socks. I love to crochet just about anything. I enjoy bead knitting bags. I like both fast and involved projects.
    I’m sad to say, yes. I have postponed dinner to finish that “one last stitch”.
    My ultimate goal is to be able to learn to needle knit and it look good and even.
    I don’t have a favorite snack to munch while working with yarn.
    My favorite gadget is my clover row counter.
    My favorite movie is “To Kill A Mockingbird”.
    My favorite book (so far) is “This Present Darkness”. My favorite as a child was the little golden book “Prayers for Children”.
    I’m presently working on a pair of crocheted slippers.
    I can’t think of a special project I wish someone would design.
    I saw your post on the Dalooms email list, so I guess you could say you invited me. :0)

    3) What is your favorite comfy place or position in which to work with yarn? I love to get on the couch or my bed, all propped up with pillows, with my feet up, of course. 😉 My yarn bag/basket is to the side of me, and my Katcha-Katcha row counter is right within hand’s reach.

    4) Like our heroin in the story below, do you ever dream about soft fuzzy goodness? Or how to do a particular technique you’d never thought of while awake? As you may have guessed, lol, this particular phenomenon seems to happen to me quite regularly! The I-cord Blanket Edge Joining, and Bethany’s Booties were given to me while catching zzzz’s…and some more that I haven’t yet put to the test!

    5) What type of loomer/knitter/crocheter are you? Do you like long involved projects, or quickies full of fast satisfaction? I’m a quickie girl, lol! Although I did really like to have the long project of the Pinwheel Blanket going, and doing smaller ones here and there besides.

    7)What is your ultimate goal in your yarn life? I’d like to make/design sweaters for each of my immediate family members…I’d like to actually get to finish that afghan from the Loom Class 😉 and I would love to be involved in another book project someday.

    8)Do you have a favorite snack you like to munch while working with yarn? Peanut M&M’s!

    9) What is your all time most favorite yarn tool/accessory that you absolutely could not live without? I would have to say it’s my little pink bag…this is a make up brush bag from Mary Kay, that is just perfect for stashing all my absolute necessities…this little bag goes with me everywhere my yarn does! But INISIDE my bag, my favorites are my Katcha-Katcha row counter, and my wool needle by Pony.

    10)What is your favorite movie? I have LOTS of favorites…but off the top of my head, I’d have to say Ever After…or an oldie: Meet Me In St Louis

    12) What are you working on right now with your yarn? I’m knitting up the Kitchen Towelette by Isela, and I’m about to begin another Spa Set with my loom alongers. 🙂

    13) Is there a special project that you’ve been just dying for someone (or yourself) to design? Sweaters for my family! I have some other plans too, but they’re in the dream/idea stage, lol.

  9. Pat says:

    1. About 7 or 8 when Mom taught me to crochet. 10ish when a classmate taught me the very basics of knitting.

    2. So many that know so much! Isela, Ann Bipes, Denise Layman, our own Bethany to name a few.

    3. Ever since breaking my ankle in early January, most of my looming has been done propped up against one of those big pillows with the arms, in/on my bed. At first it wasn’t a choice, but now I just like working there.

    4. No, not that I know of. Don’t often remember dreams, so who knows. LOL

    5. I like some of each. An ongoing larger project with the quickies for instant gratification works well for me.

    6. Of course!

    7. Haven’t given this one any thought. Maybe just to do the best job I can on whatever project I’m working on at the time.

    8. I don’t snack while working with yarn or fabric.

    9. Right now it’s my small totebag I ordered from CreativExpress. Just the right size to carry a smaller project and not have it get in the way of others. Of course there are all the items tucked into the pockets. Stitch markers, row counter, etc.

    10. No particular favorites. Not much of a movie fan.

    11. As an adult, What’s so Amazing About Grace. Don’t remember as a child, but as a tween the Albert Payson Terhune collie stories.

    12. The armshair caddy and the afghan squares. Need to get working on a baby blanket for a gift.

    13. Not that I can think of.

    14. Bethany via her invitation to the group.

  10. Pat E. says:

    1.Some old Lebanese women who worked in a family store taught a younger sister and me to knit. I was probably around 12 or 13.

    2.I would like to knit with this sister. She is a hoot and we would have a great time. Connecting with family is awesome.

    3.In my chair with my feet propped up.

    4. No dreams about yarn, yet. I have dreamed about finishing projects, though.

    5.I just like projects which I can learn new skills.

    6.Oh, yes. Sometimes I even stay in my nightie all day with my nose in my loom…..just ask my husband.

    7.I would really like to be an expert in looming and do any project with ease.

    8.Hot coffee or a latte. Chocolate. Anything chocolate.

    9.I could not survive without my Clover row counters. I have 3 of them.

    10.Movie? I am a huge “Grease” fan. I have the sound track on my MP3 player.

    11. The Velveteen Rabbit is a favorite of mine. As an adult, my favorite is The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom.

    12. I’m working on the afghan squares, some dishcloths, and slippers.

    13. Can’t think of anything right now.

    14. Bethany. BTW….She is the one who taught me to loom knit at our local community college. I put all blame on her for my addiction to looming and yarn. Thanks, Bethany, for the gift of sharing your love for the art with me.

I have completed a stocking cap for my granddaughter and am now working on an afaghan. Thanks Jackie A for inviting me and I’m sure I’ll be back. Looking at all the patterns and what other have to say is very interesting.
