I knit, but I can the basic crochet too. Used to so it in the 70`s. Have been knitting more or less since the 70`s.

Have made several dishcloths before, both for myself and for gifts. They are easy knitting while travelling.
3. What's your favorite cotton to make cloths from? What cotton would you like to try that you haven't before ?
Have no fave cotton, make from what I have there and then as long as it`s 100% cotton. Got lots from my mother-in-law which I`m using right now. Love to try new cotton from abroad.

For cloths I use circular needles, wooden.

8. When you were a kid, were you the one who couldn't wait to get started with school , or the one who overslept on the 1st day?
I never looked forward to get started again, but as soon as first day came I loved it.
9. Do you celebrate Halloween? (The real key here guys is especially knowing if you have an aversion to the holiday or little goodies/decorations associated with it, given the timeframe of the swap)
Halloween is a new tradition in our country, but my daughter celebrate it and we always have lots of kids at our door. A goodie/decoration would be nice.

M&M`s (don`t sell it here), any kind of chocolate, something with nuts.
11. Do you have any pets? Kids? Husbands who seem like kids? ;)
One cat and one pet rabitt. Two daughters age 13 (this month) and 25. Hubby and I married for 21 yrs, been together for 27.
12. If you were to describe a particular yarn that shares traits of your personality, what would it be and why? Sock yarn, 80 % wool and 20% acrylic. Soft and warm + solid.
13. Do you use your cloths mostly for dishcloths, or as facecloths? Mostly for dishcloths, but I have a couple for face as well.
14. Favorite Fall Holiday: Halloween or Thanksgiving and why? (Feel free to share another fall memory if you do not celebrate either of these holidays)
We don`t celebrate any of them (except from Halloween for youngest daughter). In late Sept we celebrate our youngest daughters birthday. It`s always a nice event.
15. Do you have any allergies or aversions your pal should know about?
