More sock info.

Another day, another swap questionnaire:

1. What are you favorite sock yarns?

FurrYarns MaineBear Sox, Lisa Souza Sock!, Knit Picks sock yarns, Mountain Colors Bearfoot

2. What are your least favorite sock yarns? Anything you just cannot use?

Socks that Rock. I know, blasphemy. I also hate unstretchy cotton yarn. Or Fixation. Actually, I really hate the fake fair isle pattern sock yarn too.

3. What method do you prefer to use (DPN’s, 2 circs, 1 circ, etc.)

2 circs and dpns

4. Is there any method that you cannot use?

I haven’t used 1 circ yet, so I’d say I “cannot” use that yet.

5. What are you favorite colors?

red and black

6. Are you a beginner, intermediate, or more advanced sock knitter?

Intermediate since I haven’t done 1 circ or magic loop yet.

7. Any other info you want to share (such as other likes, dislikes, hobbies, etc)?

I like cover versions of popular music? Chocolate?

When is our sock obsession going to be over? Maybe when global warming takes over, I guess. (Maybe we could make Jennifer’s sock thongs even then?)

ETA: My shoe size is 8 U.S.
