Secret Pal 6

1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer higher quality and/or natural fibers)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? Or is it all the same to you?
Sadly, I've become a snob. I use Red Heart for charity projects, as it holds up well and is washable. But I have tons of the stuff, so now I limit my shopping for wools mostly.
2. Do you spin? Crochet?
No spinning, but I do crochet.
3. Do you have any allergies? (smoke, pets, fibers, perfume, etc.)
Not that I'm aware of, but the smell of smoke on clothes makes me sick. Sick as in it's hard for me to breathe, and I then need to use my inhaler.

Learned when I was 7 or so, but I still can only do basic stuff. I don't think I have the attention span needed to do complicated patterns.

Yes, at Amazon, Herrschners, and Knit Picks.
