1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?
I like natural fibres, although I have so far only knitted Finnish yarns. I don't like "plastic" yarns, like ones made of acrylic only.

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?
In an old shoe box...

3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced?
I learnt from my mother when I was eight. I picked up the needles again in August '06 after several years of knitting only now and then (i.e. when I needed a new pair of mittens..) I think I'm an intermediate knitter -the easiest seem to be "too easy" for me, but there are some techniques I still can't handle.

4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?
No I don't

5. What's your favorite scent?
I think cocoa and vanilla. But I'm kinda allergic to scented candles and especially incense.

6. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favorite candy?
I totally have a sweet tooth! I loooove chocolate!

7. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Do you spin?
I don't really do any other crafts. I'd like to try ATC, though.

8. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)
I'm a metal chick. I mainly listen to metal or rock music -but I'm not one of those who only dress in black and so on.

9. What's your favorite color(s)? Any colors you just can't stand?
My favourite colors are blue, red and, for some odd reason, pink. Black and brown are always the safe choice, too.

10. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets?
I live together with my boyfriend. Unfortunately we can't have pets at the moment. We're both university students.

11. Do you wear scarves, hats, mittens or ponchos?
Here at the Arctic Circle hats, scarves and mittens are not optional, but I also love them. I have never had a poncho, but wouldn't deny to try one on.

12. What is/are your favorite item/s to knit?

13. What are you knitting right now?
Actively socks and a sweater, not-so-actively a pair of mittens  and a scarf

14. Do you like to receive handmade gifts?
Yes, they make me feel special.

15. Do you prefer straight or circular needles? Bamboo, aluminum, plastic?
I like both, although circular needles are easier to carry around since they bend. I have only aluminium and plastic needles. We don't have a store in my town which sells bamboo needles at a decent price.

16. Do you own a yarn winder and/or swift?
No I don't

17. How old is your oldest UFO?
My oldest active-UFO is about two weeks old and the less active ones are almost three months old...

18. What is your favorite holiday?
The whole Christmas season which for me starts on the 6th December -the Finnish Indapendence Day.

19. Is there anything that you collect?

20. Any books, yarns, needles or patterns out there you are dying to get your hands on? What knitting magazine subscriptions do you have?
I don't subscribe to any knitting magazines. I'd love to get the pattern for Icarus-scarf and Ene's Scarf.

21. Are there any new techniques you'd like to learn?
I can't think of any at the moment. (But I only know how to knit and crochet, I also sew a little)

22. Are you a sock knitter? What are your foot measurements?
Yes I am, I'm size 6,5 US or 37-38 EU.

23. When is your birthday?
Feb 27th.
