Entry 30 - Salutations to Second Sock Syndrome Secret Swapper

...and now repeat that phrase 100 times over with increasing speed. ;)

As requested by the KAL hostess, I've posted the answers to the survey I took so whoever is knitting a sock for me knows a bit more about me.


1.What are your favorite sock yarns?

Don't really have any. But I agree that Artyarns Supermerino feels niice. Right now, I have some Regia fadig 4-ply that I think I'm going to use.

2. What are your least favorite sock yarns? Anything you just cannot use?

Well, no. Never knitted a sock before.

3. What method do you prefer to use (DPN's, 2 circs, 1 circ, etc.)

Right now, I'm starting on DPN's. They don't seem that hard to use. I'd like to do circs if I actually had 2 circs. :)

4. Is there any method that you cannot use?

Magic loop or whatever method that sounds like it involves 2 circs of the same size. I don't know that many needles yet. DPN's are pretty inexpensive alternative to me.

5. What are your favorite colors?

blues, purples, but I like neutral colors, too. Whites, grays, rich chocolate browns, or even _mocha. The more colorful socks I usually wear with jeans. I work professionaly though, so if I'm wearing socks, they usually have to be pretty classic and neutral colored (with dark brown or black pants.) That being said, I do own some socks with cute little designs prints on them that I have worn yet are in 'neutral colors' of tan, black or white. :)

6. Are you a beginner, intermediate, or more advanced sock knitter?

Beginner, of course.

7. Any other info you want to share (such as other likes, dislikes, hobbies, etc)?

I like unique construction and enjoy other people's works of art. I look forward to seeing my future pal's sock in progress! I'm sure to find plenty of inspiration there.

8. (addenum): What size is your foot?

I wear a size 7 shoe if that is helpful.

And not to leave a post photo-less, here's a little swatch I made for the sock I'm making. Knit on Clover #1 double points.

Added: Hmm, I think I'm going to have to abandon this sock project for now. I was just reading my pal's questionnaire and I don't think my sock is going to be something she would enjoy. Ah well. I only have Regia in blue colors though (I told you my favorite color was blue!). However, I do have some Dale of Norway Baby Ull in a nice neutral cream color. I can try that. :)
