Monkey Sock Swap Q&A

Posted on: August 19, 2007

I joined another swap…I can’t help it, that sock is just too cool to pass up making. So here goes:

The basics:
Do you consider yourself a beginning sock knitter, an intermediate, or have you been doing this so long you could probably knit a pair in your sleep?
Intermediate but I really like making the basic sock unless it’s done in a solid color. Solid colors really show off the details of a complicated stitch.

The measurements:

Shoe Size: 8 – 8 1/2
Foot circumference:
at the ball of the foot it’s 9 inches
Foot length:
9 inches
Ankle: 9 inches

Yarn Preferences:
What colors do you love?
Purples, blues, greens (I’ve got this fascination for a lime green/turquoise combo lately and can’t find the right yarn to do a sock in).

Do you prefer solids or variegated? Both work for me!

Do you prefer wool, cotton or acrylic yarn? Wool, wool blends, cotton, cotton blends, bamboo.

What colors would you never wear?
Orange. Eeeeew.

What are your favorite brands of yarn? My favorites are Koigu, Panda Cotton, Silkies Socks That Rock by Blue Moon Fiber Arts, Louet, Mountain Colors. But I’m not too fussy, so long as the colorways are beautiful and the feel of the yarn is lovely – I’ll use them.
Are there any new brands you would like to try?
Can’t think of any but I’m willing to try anything.

Cookie A. Patterns:

Which of her patterns have you already knit?
Which pattern(s) would you like to knit and don’t already own?
Flicker, Mona, but I also love Hedera (my first pick, actually). Very pretty all of them.

Other pertinent information:

Would you be willing to have an international Monkey Pal or do you prefer one in the US? International would be fun – I’ll take either.

Do you have any allergies? Cat hair and dander, cig smoke.

Will your knitting be exposed to smoke or animals?

Are you on Ravelry yet? If you don’t mind having new friends, what is your Ravelry name?
I just got my invite, my ravelry name is Knitgirl63
