So I am thinking about doing some swapping on Ravelry and one of the groups has this form to be filled out before swapping. I am just tired of filing this out right now so I think I will post it here so when I feel like finishing it I can just c&p back into forum:
**What is your Location:**East Tennessee, US
**What crafts would you enjoy receiving materials for:** knitting, I do a little stamping and card making as well
**Do you have other hobbies/interests that you would like to receive gifts for?** My hobbies are essentially knitting and reading.
**Do you have any collections, or any themes for items you would like to receive?** I collect monkeys and dragons, I love Doctor Who related items, I collect buttons/pins and put them on my knitting bag
**What level of project do you like to tackle (beginner, intermediate, expert, fast & easy, complicated & challenging):** I will try anything once. :) I like instant gratification/short term projects best, I do enjoy cables and light lace work, socks and fingerless gloves are favorite projects.
**Any special skills you are currently working on?** two at a time toe up socks is my latest new skill. I plan on learning entrelac soon.
**Favorite one-skein project to make (ie., hats, mitts, socks, baby items, etc., or you’ll try anything):** I’ll try anything
**Favorite one-skein project to receive (ie., hats, mitts, socks, baby items, etc., or you’ll try anything):** I'll try anything, I must say I don't really wear hats because I am very warm natured so I get too warm in them. Love socks and mitts
**Favorite colors:**Yes. I love greens, blues, reds, purples, deep rich colors, jewel tones, pastels are good too, grey is good,
**Any colors you do NOT like?**ORANGE! I live in E. Tennessee and everything is orange! It's alright in fall or when muted with browns but as a general rule I HATE ORANGE!
**Weight(s) of yarn that you most like to work with or need more of:** I work with worsted a lot and with sock lately so any weight in between is grand as well.
**Weight(s) of yarn that you least like to work with or do not need any more of:**I tend to avoid lace weight or super chunky.
**Do you prefer solid colors, heathers, variegated:**YES. I love them all though in preference order I would say variegated/ombre, heathers, solids of course this can vary with my mood. Love self-striping yarns.
**Any fibers your partner(s) should avoid sending?**As long as it isn't plastic-y acrylic we're good. Not a yarn snob, some acrylics are fine just the cheapy plastic-y ones I hate. Not crazy about boucle, ladder or fun fur.
**Are there specific yarn brands you would like to try but haven’t yet?** I like indie dyers, I would love to try some Nerd Girl Yarns, Dragonfly fibers, Wolle's, Verdant Gryphon, YarnGarden to name a few.
**What types needles/hooks do you use?** I use knitpicks harmony interchangeable birch needles for most things, I got a set of the carbon fiber needles for socks and LOVE them, I will definitely be buying more of these. I do use the Kollage square needles on occasion. Not crazy about bamboo.
**Are you lacking or in need of any specific ones?** I only have one set of needles smaller than a size US2 because until recently I was too afraid to try them and was new to socks so all socks until now had been on size 2.75mm or greater so small needles for magic looping socks.
**Are there any other tools/gadgets you need or want?** I love stitch markers and unique buttons
**Are there any types of projects or yarns that you do not want to receive?**ladder yarn, fun fur, ribbon yarn
**Do you have food, animal, or scent allergies:** verbena
**Are you a smoker or are your supplies exposed to smoke:**no
**Do you have pets/animals and are your supplies exposed to them?**Cats but yarn is kept in bins and cats aren't allowed in that room so stray hairs may happen but it's not guaranteed.

**What kind of salty edible treats do you like?**pretzels, roasted nuts,
**Beverages of choice? (Coffee, Tea, Caffeine or not, flavored or not, alcoholic or not, etc?)** I don't do "diet" anything, I hate the aftertaste of artificial sweeteners.
