Summer Dishcloth Exchange Questionnaire

1.   I knit and crochet.  I have been crocheting for over 30 years and knitting for over 20 years.

2.   I use all types of  needles.  Mostly circular and DPN for knitting and any type crochet hook except for BOYE brand.  I have metal Addi Turbos, KnitPick Harmony needles, Crystal Palace bamboo, Clover  bamboo and many other brands.   I use some short plastic children's straight needles for my dishcloths.  Don't use many straight needles any more but still have some.

3.   My favorite yarn is Wendy's Velvet Touch.  It is great for baby and children's blankets and sweaters. Very soft and works up fast. 
 I love Sugar and Cream and Peaches and Cream and Fantasy Naturale for dishcloths.   
I like Cascade 220 and Paton's Merino Wool for felting.  I have other wools I have received in swaps that are great also.

4.   Cotton yarns I have used are listed above.  I am always open to trying new yarns. 

5.   I use the dishclothes I make as gifts mostly since I have received so many beautiful ones for myself  from swaps.

6.   My favorite color is any shade of purple but I am open to most colors.  I like jewel tones, navy, blues, reds, lavenders, varigated/ombres.   Orange is my least favorite color.

Frozen Hot chocolate? How does that work? I LOVE hot chocolate, but find it is only a winter drink, but frozen, now that's awesome!!

There is a coffee shop on Cape Cod that makes the best frozen hot chocolate! I found a recipe on a container of Ghirardelli Hot Cocoa Mix - the double chocolate flavor. It is not as good as the Hot Chocolate Sparrow but it is not bad!
