13.Any pattern you would love to make if money and time were no object? I would love to do the 50 state dishcloth afghan.
14.Favorite kind of needles (brand, materials, straights or circs, etc)? Have Denise set, love addi (not the bamboo ones) and the new Hiya circulars

Tell me the best quote you’ve ever heard or read. It’s time for me to fly (REO)
What is your motto in life? It’s time for me to fly
Do you have a wishlist? (ie: Amazon, B&N, a LYS, online store, etc.) Please list link here. Hmmm….not that I know of. Although I just found the blogs for Yarn Harlot and Stitch’n Bitch’n (not sure on spelling – sorry). I have never seen any of their books.
Anything else you’d like to share with your Sox Box pal? I’m rather spoiled and normally buy what I want or need. I live outside of Memphis and honestly have never seen any of the yarns on people’s blogs. I don’t know what hand-dyed yarn is nor have I seen Lorna Laces, etc. This just isn’t something in the LYS that is carried here.
Any allergies to be aware of for this swap? UMMM….work and dust? LOL
Coffee, Tea? Dunkin’ Donuts – We don’t’ have one here.
Anything Else? I am a fairly new knitter (since January 2006) although I have a strong crafting background. I catch on easily (the LYS can’t believe what I knit for being what is called a beginner) I have already taken the advanced finishing class and everyone wants me to begin the “master knitter” course (not sure about that one). I still think I have a lot to learn. I loved making socks from my first pair on size 2 in black wildfoote. Hubby wanted a pair. Since then I have made over 20 pairs. I like patterns from me, but the easiest is 2x2 ribbing with a short-row heel for hubby! LOL
