Lots of knitting not enough blogging

I am participating in the second round of the Dishcloth Swap and I can't wait to start knitting dishcloths again. I had a lot of fun in the last swap and received lots of goodies from my pal. Thanks again Abigail!

Do you knit, or crochet, or do both? How long have you been knitting\crocheting? I have been knitting since I was 7.
Have you knit dishcloths or dishtowels before? Yup...Lots of them!
What are your favorite cotton yarns? Is there a cotton or linen you’ve been dying to try but have not? Any cotton yarns will do.
Are there any cotton yarns you don’t enjoy knitting with? On my needles right now is Rowan Cotton Denim for the Indigo Skirt and I am hating how it is dying my fingers.
What type of needle do you prefer using? (Metal/Wood/Plastic) Prefer bamboo for socks and addi's for sweaters.
What other projects do you enjoy knitting or crocheting? Socks, sweaters, hats, mittens
Do you have other hobbies or enjoy other kinds of crafting? scrapbooking when I have time and photography.
What kind of treats do you like? Chocolate? Candies? Nuts? I love toblerone!
What colors are your kitchen and bath decorated in, if any? My kitchen and bath are painted in jewel colors.
What are your favorite colors and what colors do you dislike? This summer I am really into bright colors. I am a bit tired of jewel tones-since that is what is on my needles. Burgandy, amathyst, and dark blue. I would LOVE something bold and colorful.
Do you drink coffee? Tea? Other beverages? I drink coffee and Irish tea.
Do you have any kids (human or pet variety!)? I have a black Pomeranian named "tucket". No kids yet.
Do you have any allergies? No allergies.
Please share 3 tidbits about yourself that you think your pal and other swappers might find odd or interesting.
My husband is Irish and has a brogue.
I use my china dishes and silver silverware everyday. I know it should only be saved for special occasions but I just love how pretty it is on the table.
I changed careers 5 years ago (graphic designer to teacher) and it was the best decision I have ever made.
