Knitting Meme

I was wondering what I would blog about today, so I googled "knitting meme" and this came out. I'm giving it a shot. I might be late to the party...but better late than never!

~ What is your all time favorite yarn to knit with?

I can't say I tried a lot of yarns. As long as it's soft, in a nice color and doesn't break my bank it'll be my favorite. Right now I have a thing for alpaca yarn, its' soo soft.

~ Your favorite needles?

I like using circular needles to knit everything! I have tried using DPNs, but I just don't get it, that's why I use 2 circulars to knit in the round.

~ The worst thing you've ever knit?

(sigh) So many things. The one that comes to my mind right now is a hat that I made for SIL. I used needles that were too small, so it ended up being too stiff and I ran out of yarn and it ended up being to small.

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

I felt very accomplished when I made Clapotis. I'm happy with anything that turns out remotely similar to the original.

~ Most valuable knitting technique

I don't know, knitting continental? The last technique that I learned was color knitting. There are a ton that I want to learn! Double knitting, enterlac (and purling from the front), intrasia, Kitchener stitch, oh my!

~ Best knit book or magazine

I tend to buy VK and IK magazines. I like nice pictures, like the ones in Rowan, but that's too expensive. Book is another thing, I currently have an EZ craving. I'm starting to lean more towards books that teach you how to do it and improve it, rather than just give you a pattern. I haven't had a chance to use my Knitting from the top, but I'm glad I have it.

~ Your favorite knit-a-long?

Zimmermania, but just because it's the only one I'm a member of.

~ Your favorite knitblogs?
Lets see: Yarn Harlot, Knit and Tonic, Skrilla Knits (I usually visit most of her blog list), Buenas Puntadas ( I like reading about knitting in Spanish), Batty's, Bezzie's, I have to make my own blog roll.

~ Your favorite knitwear designer?

I would loooove to say ME, but, I haven't design anything...soon I hope. Right now EZ is my favorite, I would like to knit everything on her books.

~ The knit item you wear the most?

My first Clapotis. I don't knit for myself that much, actually it was one of my New Year's resolutions (it's in Spanish, but it's in there) and here I am, doing Locapalooza.

I'm tagging anyone who wants to do this. I would love to read your answers! leave a comment with your link.
