I seem to have a bit of a thing for sock swaps at the moment! I've the second hogwarts swap ongoing, and then when I saw that ,Rebecca was running another Monkey swap, I just couldn't resist! I wanted to join last time, but just missed the deadline for signups, but I'm in plenty of time this time around:-) If anyone else fancies joining in, details can be found here, and signups finish at the end of august.

Monkey Sock Swap THREE Questionnaire

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?
Hmmmm, intermediate to advanced I think.......fairisle fills me with terror, but I'm pretty good at cables and lace!

Yarn Preferences:
What colors do you love? I like rich colours, reds/burgundys, anything autumnal!

Do you prefer solids or variegated?
I love both, But my stash is mainly variagated, a bit of solid colour thrown in would be great!

I have to say international really don't I!!!! LOL!!!!

I was tempted, but the thought of knitting to a deadline for someone else terrifies me too much :) I shall watch your progress with interest though.

Tempted - but while I love deadline ("I love the whooshing sound they make as they go flying past") I have too many deadlines at present. I'm waiting for my ravelry invite too.

I can't remember what the hell I have said YES to as it is.

Oh my another sock swap! That sounds like fun, but I think my needles are full with the HSS2, maybe next time!

Not to be bothersome but I was wondering if you accepted my design contest entry?! Its called Not Another Weasley Hat. You can find it on my blog,

Sorry if i'm being anoying, I was just really excited about it and haven't heard from you about it. The e-mail link you have on the post wouldn't work for me, it bounced back.
