    30 November
  3. Do you have any special birthday traditions? no
  4. What is your favorite birthday memory?
    Nothing comes to mind
  5. Any allergies we should know about?

  6. What crafts do you do - knit, crochet, spin, dye, bead, quilt, etc. etc. ?

  7. Any sorts of fibers you particularly love or hate or are dying to work with?
    No particular dislikes; looking forward to knitting up some of the lovelies in my stash
  8. What weight of yarn do you prefer?
    I seem to have lots of baby things to make, so I'm on the lookout for DK-weight cottons or linens
  9. What are your favorite knitting accessories? (i.e.: stitch markers, row counters…)
    I have lots of split-ring markers (for crochet), but not many knitting markers for fine, tiny needles.

  13. Do you enjoy handmade soap and body products?
    Not really. Sometimes they can make me itchy.
  14. Are there any scents you love or hate?
    I'm not a fan of wearable scents (my strange body chemistry makes everything smell like melting plastic). But scented candles and sachets are fine...mostly in sweet scents like vanilla, sugar cookie, etc.

    Flower? Irises (love the colors).
