Longing For Spring Swap

 I’m so excited! I am participating in my very first knitters/crocheters swap. And it’s about my favorite season – Spring. They are taking sign-ups through today at Longing For Spring Swap Blog.


  1. Do you knit or crochet? Knit
    How long have you been at your craft?4 years
  2. What are your favorite yarns/fibers? Alpaca, bamboo, wool, cotton
    What are your least favorite yarns/fibers? Acrylic because it rubs my fingers raw
  3. What are your favorite colors? Blue, purple, red, green, and earthy colors.
    What are your least favorite colors? Orange, yellow and any neon colors.
  4. What ‘warm weather’ project are you looking forward to making this year? Socks and maybe a shawl
  5. What are you favorite scents? Lavender/floral, musky, and “green” scents like eucalyptus or grass
    Least favorite? Food scents like raspberry or chocolate (unless I’m eating them of course!)
  6. What is your favorite flower? All bulbs, but especially irises and crocus, sunflowers, almost all flowers really
  7. What are you favorite spring time hobbies/activities? Gardening,walking, and sitting on my deck reading.
  8. Do you have a garden? Yes.
    If you do, tell us a little about it.  I have 2 raised beds for veggies and some marigolds, zinnias, and nasturtiums to keep away the bad guys. I have lavender, rosemary, lime thyme, parsley and other herbs as well. I usually plant some bright colored annuals around int he yard.
    Do you like to plant flowers or vegetables? Both
  9. What are your favorite sweets? Dark chocolate, chocolate with unusual flavors like earl gray or chili are a plus – just know I’m a vegetarian, so no chocolate with bacon. I just gave a bacon bar to a friend, so as weird as it sounds, it really exists! 
  10. Do you collect anything? I like anything japanese, badtz maru, bento box containers, and silly garden art, oh and sheep!
  11. Do you have any allergies? Dust and some pollen.
  12. Do you have any pets? I have 2 cats and one silly dog.

  1. Hey Kathy, I’m your swap partner 🙂 Looking forward to making a new friend and giving you some presents I think you’ll really like.

    We have very similar taste in scents. Maybe you can give me some advice on having a little garden box of my own this season. Look forward to chatting sometime soon!

    If you have Ravelry, my username is GentleJoanna

  2. Kathy, I’m kind of confused. When Amy posted that we should message or comment on our friends blog I didn’t realize she meant anonymously, or did she? I’m pretty lost here. I hope I didn’t ruin the surprise if it’s supposed to be one 😦
