"Spring Into Summer" Dishcloth Swap

Dishcloths are one of my favorite projects to knit. There quick, portable, and practical.

"Spring Into Summer" Dishcloth Swap Questionnaire:

When did you learn to knit? Who taught you?
I learned about 2 years ago at my LYS, Finely A Knitting Party

What was your very first completed object? Your most recent?
My first completed object was a washcloth, and my most recent was my Landscape Shawl.

What was the very first thing you sent to the frog pond? (pulled out and started over) Your most recent?
I don't remember the first frogged project, but my top-down tie cardigan was the most recent.

What is currently on the needles for you?
Oh boy, here we go:
A felted basket
My top-down tie cardigan
Flying Geese blanket from Mason-Dixon Knitting
A pair of socks

What types of needles do you enjoy working with? What have you tried and hated?
I like my Addis and my KnitPicks Options for circs, and also bamboo for straight and circs. I have a Needlemaster set that I hate, all metal straights that I've tried.

Have you knit dishcloths before?
I always have a dishcloth going!

What was your favorite one?
I have a simple pattern that I am always knitting that is knit on a diagonal and has a nice eyelet around the edge. It's portable and the pattern is easy to memorize, so its kinda mindless.

Least favorite?
I don't think I've found one that I don't like yet, although I haven't tried too many!

Do you use homemade dishcloths or face cloths yourself, or give them as gifts, or both?

What are your favorite and least favorite scents? (For your body, such as soap/lotion/etc)
I love fruity smells, cherry blossom, almond, coconut, honey, vanilla, light florals

What are your favorite colors?
I love all colors but not a huge fan of pastels.

What colors (if any) are your bathroom and kitchen decorated in?
My kitchen is sage green and cream, with cranberry accents.

What other hobbies and crafts do you enjoy?
I crochet, and rubber stamp and bead just a smidge. Other things just take away from knitting.

Chocolate: Dark? White? Milk? Ew?
Milk- Definitely (preferably with something like caramel, almonds, etc. in it)

Do you like salty treats? What kinds?
Not so much, maybe pretzels and popcorn

If you could go anywhere in the world for one day and spend the day any way you wanted, where would you go and what would you do?
I think that I would just sit outside in a big city park on a blanket and just relax.

Do you have any allergies? (Yarns, foods, etc. that might impact what your pal can send)

I have a bunch of other questionnaires up too, so you can check them out if you need more info!
