12. What would you like your pal to know that is not covered here?
I have only been knitting for the past few years but have crocheted since I was in high school back in the 80s. I spent 9 1/2 years in the US Navy with 5 years on an aircraft carrier. My two small boys are a handful. One is 4 years and the other is 21 months. Sometimes I miss living in Pueblo, Colorado. Bright neon colors make my eyes hurt. My all time favorite scent is lavender. My favorite NFL team is the San Diego Chargers and my favorite NASCAR driver is Jeff Burton. Plus I have all of the Harry Potter books and have been sorted into Ravenclaw.

I'm not in this swap with you (I am in the fall into autumn swap though) but I'm from Pueblo, too.. and no longer living there. It was nice to see someone else who was, too :)
