No fiber allegeries but I am not crazy about cigarette smoke

Do you prefer any fibers over others?
anything soft and squishy

Thinking back to Scout’s post about what funky means to you, post an image of something that you think is funky!

Would you prefer funky yarn or a funky pattern?

What are your favorite colors?
blues and greens

What is your favorite piece of art?
Currently its the daffodil painting here. I just love daffodils. They are soooo spring like. The only sad part is they only bloom in the spring time. But its something to look forward to each year. And I love the fact that I can see them for my birthday in March.

What colors would you never have up close to your pretty face?
pink, purple, and yellow

Would you prefer an actual scarf or a cowl?
a scarf

When you wear a scarf do you prefer a wider/shorter scarf or a thin/long scarf?

Would you prefer a functional scarf (to keep you warm) or one just to funk-up your wardrobe? one to funk up the wardrobe

What else would you like your partner to know about you?
I have two small boys - Nathan (3) and Nicholas (8 months). I love Charmed and Harry Potter - I'm a Ravenclaw. I also have this weird love of Hello Kitty and I don't even wear pink.

Sock kit completed and on its way...

I have finally completed my sock kit and it is now on its way. I hope my partner likes what I have chosen for her. First, I kept changing my mind on the bag and in the end crocheted it since I crochet faster than knit.

I used Lion Brand Chenille Thick & Quick in Black and Bernat Boa in Phoenix. There is a reason for the color phoenix. My partner is a big Harry Potter fan and there is a phoenix in the movie.

I also included one of the Sockblocker key chains from Felt Up Designs here in Oregon, 2 skeins of Brown Sheep WildFoote Luxury Sock Yarn in Blue Blood Red, some stitch markers that I made myself. They have lil owl beads on them. There is also a counter bracelet with a lil owl on it. Hope she likes everything that I put in the lil bag.
