12. If you were to describe a particular yarn that shares traits of your personality, what would it be and why? Hmm...a tricky question! I would like to say multi coloured angora I think, feminine, soft and fluffy, not too scratchy and never know what colour(mood) I'm going to be next!
13. Do you use your cloths mostly for dishcloths, or as facecloths? Both, I love them!
14. Favorite Fall Holiday: Halloween or Thanksgiving and why? (Feel free to share another fall memory if you do not celebrate either of these holidays) I don't do thanksgiving as I'm in the UK but I do remember getting dressed up for a Halloween party once or twice, that was fun! All cobwebs and scars everywhere!
15. Do you have any allergies or aversions your pal should know about? I am allergic to chocolate, it gives me migraine but I am fine with Organic White Chocolate!
I have been arty crafty for as long as I can remember but since discovering knitting blogs and ravelry I have become obsessed! My passion since last summer has been spinning, I simply cannot get enough of it. I am now dyeing my own fibre and creating the most delicious and squishy batts of fibre on my drum carder. I am enjoying using my handspun to make useful items of clothing.
I married my darling husband Barry in 2008, I cannot begin to tell you how happy we are together. He is so encouraging of my creativity.
We have our own photography business, set up last year and this year we are getting busier and busier which is great but it doesn’t half use up my crafting time!
