Flying Piggy Knitting Meme!

What is your all time favorite yarn to knit with?

Seasilk by Handmaiden. Yuuuuuuuummy.

Your favorite needles?

Addi Turbos. Lurve them. I have two.

The worst thing you've ever knit?

Um... oh- right. The alien illusion scarf from stitch n' bitch in ugly scratchy acrylic that sucked (the yarn and me- not the pattern) so I tried to turn it into a pillow and for some god forsaken reason I put a fringe on it. Shudder.

Your most favorite knit pattern? (maybe you don't like wearing it...but it was the most fun to knit)

Um.... the skull dishcloth was fun. I haven't a clue.

Most valuable knitting technique?

Kitchener stitch- it's like magic!

Best knit book or magazine?

Like Hillary, I LOVE Knitting Rules by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee and my favorite magazine is Interweave.

Your favorite knit-a-long?

Never done it.

Your favorite knitblogs?

Lots. I'm not linking. I'm lazy. Bah.

Your favorite knitwear designer?

Veronik Avery. Hands down.

The knit item you wear the most? (how about a picture of it!)

My NYC toque that I wore in my grad photos.

And now I am going to go brush my teeth. I taught high school art today which was, for the most part, a lot of fun. Cheeky cheeky grade 10 students but they made me laugh. One student, Korean, when I held his work at arms length and told him to squint his eyes to look at it said 'I can't! They'd just close!' and the entire class just lost it. I was laughing so hard I was nearly crying. Then he just kept on closing his eyes and saying 'it all looks good!'. Ah, high school students.
