Vegan Yarn Swap2

So, I was on the knit-list one day and I heard about this Vegan yarn swap so I went to the site and signed right up and here I am answering my questionnaire.

1. What is/are your craft(s), & how long have you been doing it/them?
I knit and storybook and sew. I’ve been knitting for 3years and I started storybooking in March. I've been sewing since I was 9 or 10.

2. Are you a vegan, vegetarian, veg-curious, veg-friendly or other?
Well, I’m not really sure. I tell everyone that I’m vegan, but when I looked at the list of things that are vegan, I won’t eat almost any of it. So, I don’t eat dairy, meat or sugar. And I steer clear of white/refined flour and sweeteners. I eat tons of fruit, veggies, grains, beans, and nuts. I eat this way for health reasons and it really throws my stomach out of whack to eat any of the things I avoid.

3. Is this your first swap, or have you done previous swaps before? What makes a swap enjoyable for you?
This is my first swap so I’m going with the flow.

4. What is/are your favorite color(s)? Do you particularly dislike any color(s)?
I was an art major in college. Color is my world and I haven’t met one that I don’t enjoy on some level. But if I were to choose, (this is really hard) maybe aqua/turquoise or perhaps magenta, or a really yummy chocolate color….

5. Do you have any allergies (such as pets, foods, fibers or cigarette smoke)?
I don’t have any allergies, but I hate the smell of cigarette smoke.

6. Do you have any companion animals? If so, name(s) and type(s)?*
We have outdoor pets. Ranger is our chow Doberman mix and Pinky is our black cat. Although Pinky has been with us for a while now, I still smile every time I say her name because it is actually quite funny to me that my 4 year old a black cat pink.

7. Do you collect anything?
Maybe just yarn and knitting patterns and fabric. I have a fabric stash, but I very rarely sew as I’d rather be knitting.

8. Do you have a favorite vegan food, snack or dish? If no fav that's vegan (for those who aren't vegan), what's your favorite food? (Hopefully your pal can find a vegan version!)
I love food. I’m always willing to try new and unusual things. But I do love Phenomenal Pumpkin Spice Cookies that the Alternative Baking Company makes and ever time I’m at the Health food store, I pick up some Green and Black’s Mayan Gold chocolate.

9. What are some of your favorite/least favorite tastes/flavors? (e.g. sweet, salty, chocolate, crunchy, smooth, tart, sour, spicy, Thai, whatever - Help your pal get a feel for what kind of recipes you might like and/or never ever make.)
Although I have a sweet tooth a mile long, I do enjoy salty, spicy, and crunchy flavors as well. I had a dear friend in high school that introduced me to Indian food and I’ve been hooked ever since! But I don't drink/eat coffee, alcohol, or tea, unless it's herbal and caffeine free.

10. What tools/supplies/accessories for your craft(s) are you wishing you had but don't? Also, what do you have TOO many of? (basically a wish and anti-wish list)
I have recently jumped into lace knitting and I can’t get enough of it, but I don’t have any blocking wires so those are on my to get list. I really do have too much of any one thing, so feel free to share with me some of your personal favs.

11. Are you on Ravelry? What's your handle?
Not yet, maybe some time in the future…

12. Is there anything else you would like your pal to know about you?
I’m 25 I own my own business, I’m married with 2 kids and 2 pets. We all try to live together with my husband’s grandfather who has Alzheimer’s and needs someone to look after him.

13. What scents do you like/dislike?
I love the smell of clean linen, baking goodies, mint, roses, lavender, and green tea but not geraniums.

14. Do you prefer fall or Halloween or some other Autumn theme?
Fall/Autumn please:)

15. Just for fun - tell your favorite Halloween or Autumn related memory.
I love the smell of autumn air. It’s crisp and clear with the slightest tinge of frost. I love the Smokey Mountains and each fall I visit family up there to be a part of the seasonal change because I don’t get that in Florida.
