My questionnaire

Hey, I have a blog but I'd rather post this here if that's ok!

  1. What is/are your craft(s), & how long have you been doing it/them?
    I knit (3 years), sew (2ish years), and dabble in handmade cosmetics, paper crafts, interior design, etc! I also paint and draw which I've been doing pretty much my whole life.
  2. Are you a vegan, vegetarian, veg-curious, veg-friendly or other?
    I'm a vegan.
  3. Is this your first swap, or have you done previous swaps before? What makes a swap enjoyable for you?
    I've done lots of swaps! I love getting a pretty, colorful mix of objects that are useful. I'd rather receive things I can use over and over, or something like food that can be consumed right away than something semi-disposable.
  4. What is/are your favorite color(s)? Do you particularly dislike any color(s)?
    Aqua/tiffany blue, acid green/chartreuse, fire engine red, steel grayish blue, fuschia, olive green, black, gray. I don't really like royal blue/navy blue, bright purple, bright jeweltones.
  5. Do you have any allergies (such as pets, foods, fibers or cigarette smoke)?
  6. Do you have any companion animals? If so, name(s) and type(s)?*
    I have a Boston terrier named Kyla.
  7. Do you collect anything?
    I'm starting to collect handmade plush.
  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!)
    Cookies! I love peanut butter too.
  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.)
    My favorite types of food are Indian, Thai, Japanese and Mexican. I like spicy things! I'm really not very picky but I prefer to cook from whole ingredients rather than prepackaged convenience foods. I don't like processed stuff or anything with high fructose corn syrup, etc.
  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'd love a swift (I have a ball winder) and a thread rack for my wall. I have plenty of knitting needles but I'd like some different lengths of the Knitpicks Options cables. I'd love some stitch markers, I hardly have any! I'd love some way to organize/hold my circular needles.
  11. Are you on Ravelry? What's your handle?
    yes - myaimistrue
  12. Is there anything else you would like your pal to know about you?
    I like to run. I listen to punk & hardcore. I'm 25. I have cool hair and I'm tattooed.
  13. What scents do you like/dislike?
    I like clean, herbal scents and vanilla if it's not too strong. I HATE fake food scents, especially cinnamon.
  14. Do you prefer fall or Halloween or some other Autumn theme?
    Fall, please!
  15. Just for fun - tell your favorite Halloween or Autumn related memory.
    I love going on hayrides and sitting in front of bonfires snuggled up next to my boyfriend. I love wearing hoodies and scarves and boots. Autumn is my favorite season!
