Dishcloth Swap

I just joined a new swap. I am so excited. I do not have any dishcloths
and can't wait to make one for my pal. We filled out a questionare and
here are my answers.

When did you learn to knit? Who taught you?I learned to knit when I
was 7 by my next door neighbor on Cape Cod.

What was your very first completed object? A blue and pink
stockinette scarf. I was so mad that it kept curling that I tried to
iron it flat. I quit knitting after that for a few years because of
the curling catastrophe.

Your most recent? The Central Park Hoodie. I wear it all the time!
What was the very first thing you sent to the frog pond?
(pulled out and started over) Socks

Your most recent? The Aran Island Mittens (Folk Mittens).
just started them last week and I had a bit of trouble with the
design in the tree of life pattern.

What is currently on the needles for you? Aran Island Mittens and
theNantucket Jacket (Interweave Knits)
What types of needles
do you enjoy working with? I love Addi turbo's and bamboo.

What have you tried and hated? The long pink metal ones
I used to knit my first scarf. YUCK!

Have you knit dishcloths before? No but I can't wait!
What was your favorite one? The one I will be making for my pal.
Do you use homemade dishcloths or face cloths yourself, or give
them as gifts, or both? I do not have any dishcloths.

What are your favorite and least favorite scents?
(For your body, such as soap/lotion/etc) Lavender or Lily of the Valley.

What are your favorite colors? Any Jewel colors.

What other hobbies and crafts do you enjoy? Reading,
making nantucket baskets and embroidering pillow cases.

Chocolate: Dark? White? Milk? Ew? Milk Chocolate
Do you like salty treats? What kinds? Not Really. Does salt
water taffy count?

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 would first travel to Ireland to visit my in-laws.
