Knit vs. Crochet

The ongoing drama(?) of a girl torn between two obsessions with too little time.

Swap Info

I've been doing a lot of swapping on Craftster (love making things for others, don't want to inundate everyone I know with crafted crap) and figured I might as well post a little list about me--since I know I find it very useful when others have a swap info page:

random things
do you keep a journal/art sketch book? I have a journal or two. I'm not much of an artist, though.
do you have any pets? I have two cats, an old orange tabby and a young black cat (who is a demon!)
do you have a portable CD player, mobile phone, or ipod? I have a motorola cell phone and a creative labs zen, but I don't need any cozies or anything like that
do you need another random trinket box? Of course!
do you need something to carry your knitting/sewing with you? Yes. I usually have each of my projects in its own little WIP bag, and...erm...I have a lot of WIPs
do you need another purse/wallet? Always.
what crafts do you do/want to do? I knit, crochet, make jewelry, and have been dabbling with Fimo. I'm the type that will get really obsessed with learning how to do something and pick up a new craft at the drop of a dime. These are just the ones that have stuck, so far.
do you collect anything? I hoard yarn, but that's not really the same thing.

do you wear earrings? yes! they're my most-worn jewelry
do you wear bracelets/cuffs? not really.
whats your wrist size? 6.5/7"
do you wear necklaces? yes
do you wear rings? not really.
do you want gold or silver findings? I like silver-colored stuff.

shirt size: small (34")
anything else, ask me for measurements--I have funky proportions!

what is are your favorite color? I like green, red, pink, orange, blue, brown, black, white, and most shades thereof other than hunter green.
do you have a favorite animal you would like something made with? I like kitties, but I find most animals quite cute.
do you have a favorite TV series you would like something made with? I like the Simpsons, The Oblongs, Family Guy, American Dad--pretty much all the child-inappropriate cartoons out there!
do you have a favorite book you would like something made with? I don't really know how they would translate into a craft, but I love Lolita, The Mandarins, and Anna Karenina
What is your favorite food? I love all foods. Meat, veggies, fruit, rice, ice cream...EVERYTHING. Food rocks.
What is your favorite smell? vanilla, gardenia, peony
What are your favorite images? I like things with clean lines. e.g. Edward Hopper > Van Gogh. Polka dots > paisley. Pin-up girls >...ok, I just like pin-ups, who doesn't?

allergies and aversions
are there any colors you hate? I don't like hunter green or yellow, really.
would you dislike receiving items made from animal products? no, I've no objections to that.
is there anything you would rather not receive because of religious references? I'm a liberal democrat atheist/agnostic, so...nothing counter to that ;-) despite this I find the sacred heart motif really fascinating.
do you have any actual allergies? none that I know of.

what are your favorite movies? Secretary, Donnie Darko, Dogville, Moulin Rouge, The Ring, Dancer in the Dark, Huit Femmes, Chunking Express
who is your favorite person from those movies? James Spader, Nicole Kidman, Ewan Mcgregor, Bjork, Virginie Ledoyen, Faye Wong (I realize this might not be all that helpful, actually.)
who are your celebrity crushes? Jude Law, Pierce Brosnan, Cillian Murphy, Viggo Mortensen (but only in LotR!)
who is the best cartoon character? Buttercup, from the Powerpuff Girls
what are your favorite music/bands: Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Beth Orton, PJ Harvey, Tori Amos, Ben Folds Five, Jump, Little Children, Placebo, Guster, Cibo Matto
who is/are your favorite authors: V. Nabokov, L. Tolstoy, F. Dostoyevsky, Simone De Beauvoir, Kurt Vonnegut, Nadine Gordimer

You're so right about Viggo. Although I do find his complete dorkiness in real life (or "real life") charming.
