I am definately longing for spring!

It's about -40C with the windchill today again, so anything that makes the wait until spring go quicker is just fine by me!!!

Here's my answers to the Longing for Spring Questionaire!

Do you knit or crochet? How long have you been at your craft?
I knit and have for about 28 years. I've got very basic crochet skills, but want to really learn how this year. Last year I bought a copy of Interweave's Crochet magazine and am dying to make a couple of the patterns!

What are your favorite yarns/fibers? What are your least favorite yarns/fibers? I like all sorts of fibres and yarns. I'm not crazy about novelty (fun fur), but anything else goes!

What are your favorite colors? What are your least favorite colors? I love rich or bright (not neon) colours. Anything from purple and blues to oranges, browns and greens. I'm just not terribly fond of pastel colours.

What ‘warm weather’ project are you looking forward to making this year? I want to make a couple of cotton type tops for myself and maybe my daughter.

What are you favorite scents? Least favorite? I like light fruity type sents. I don't care for anything to overpowering - my asthma really doesn't like them!

What is your favorite flower? I absolutely adore tulips!

What are you favorite spring time hobbies/activities? After being cooped up all winter, I love to get out in the yard. I don't have room in my yard for a garden, but have window boxes set out along the entire perimeter of my deck.

Do you have a garden? If you do, tell us a little about it. Do you like to plant flowers or vegetables? Well, no garden as such, but I love having loads of flowers in the aforementioned window boxes. I also have big pots of flowers on the deck. I used to love growing veggies too - just don't have the room anymore.

What are your favorite sweets? I've got a terrible sweet tooth and honestly don't think I've ever met a sweet I didn't like!

Do you collect anything? Yarn! Patterns! ha ha! (and in the winter... it may be said by some that I have a small addiction to snowmen!)

Do you have any allergies? Just the asthma

Do you have any pets? We have a whole menagerie of pets! Two golden retrievers, two cats, a rat and about 10 fish!

I am really excited about this swap and can hardly wait to get my partner's information!
