Meme: A second look.

About a year ago I did this meme.

I thought that it would be a good idea to revisit it since I hadn't really been knitting that long when I did it the first go 'round.

What is your all time favorite yarn to knit with?
Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride worsted or bulky, I just love it.

Your favorite needles?
Addi Natura Circs mostly. I tend to favor circs over straights just because it's less strain on your wrists.

The worst thing you've ever knit?
Hard to say. I generally rip stuff I don't think it's turning out well.

Your most favorite knit pattern? (maybe you don't like wearing it...but it was the most fun to knit)
I don't view knitting as "fun", and while that might sound I think it's torture, I don't. It's just something I do. I sometimes thing the end results are fun, but not necessarily the process itself is fun. I always try to challenge myself with my projects. I like them to be something I have never made before or some new technique I have never tried before.

Most valuable knitting technique?
Knitting Backwards. Thanks Coleen!


Best knit book or magazine?

I read Interweave pretty regularly. And sometimes Vogue.

Your favorite knit-a-long?
I have discovered I don't really care for knit-a-longs. They make me feel guilty for not getting around to doing or completing the specified project.

Your favorite knitblogs?
Check the link on the sidebar, I like all of the ones I read.

Your favorite knitwear designer?

Evelyn Clark, Kate Gilbert, Kristen Nicholas, and of course.. Eunny. :)

The knit item you wear the most?
I don't. Most of my knits have been given away. Or they aren't clothing items. I am working on some stuff now that will be items for me to wear, so perhaps that will change with time.

That's it. I don't know that my answers are any mSave as Draftore satisfactory than they were a year ago, or even that my thoughts have changed that much, but it's neat to see at any rate.
