mini prge questionnaire

i'm playing along with the mini round of the punk rock gift exchange, so here's my questionnaire. if you feel the punk knitting urges, come check it out!

1. Why are you punk?

this is a weird question. i mean, i could try to answer that i fit in with the aesthetic, or the values, or the mentality... but really, i just feel punk. isn't that the important part?

2. What are your five favorite things? (these don't have to be knit related)

my rockstar OH, music, knitting, dyeing, the people in my life that are real enough to stick around.

3. What are your three favorite things that you have made with knitting/crochet?

my loooooooooooooooong pink/red/orange/yellow neon tube scarf, the purple/red/pink military sweater i'm working on right now, and the loooooooooong harry potter style green/purple/black nightmare before christmas scarf i made for my brother.

4. What five things would you love to see in a swap box someday?

roving (i'm buying myself a spindle), jars of jaquard acid dyes (i can always use more colours), buttons, pins or patches for my hoodie (mostly vintage punk, but i would kill for a detroit cobras patch!), funky punk-y beads for making stitch markers, music that YOU love!

5. What are your three favorite yarns? What are your three least favorite yarns?

i love kona fingering superwash, i'm just playing with it for the first time.. it's lovely to work with, and to dye. cherry tree hill supersock is scrumptious! knitpicks bare is fun, too.

i don't have least favourite yarns, but i'm allergic to mohair and angora.

6. What are your five favorite delicacies?

haha. not quite delicacies, but i love diet coke, gummi candy (the kind with NO sugar/sour stuff on the outside), and of course chocolate... but i also loved steamed green veggies (especially asparagus), and have a serious soft spot for STRONG black tea with a teensy bit of milk in it.

7. What are your three favorite guilty pleasures?

crime tv shows! especially true crime, and csi:miami. staying in bed sleeping allllll day long. knitting or hanging out in knitting communities when i should be doing laundry or cleaning my house!

8. What would you like your pal to know that is not covered here?

i collect stuff. i love fraggles, vintage t-shirts, patches and pins, PEZ DISPENSERS (i have hundreds of them), things that are hot pink and black, things that are leopard print... did i mention anything that's pink? i also love tattoos and piercings, as is evidenced by how much money i spend on them.

also, i gather balls and scraps of worsted yarn, wool or acrylic or cotton, to make mitred squares for a patchwork blanket that's my ongoing project.

anything else, feel free to ask!
