Monkey Sock Swap q&a

The basics:
Do you consider yourself a beginning sock knitter, an intermediate, or have you been doing this so long you could probably knit a pair in your sleep?
Intermediate; I just started making them in January.

The measurements:
Shoe Size: 9 1/2 (depends on the brand)
Foot circumference: at the ball of the foot it’s 9 /12 inches
Foot length: almost 10 inches

Yarn Preferences:
What colors do you love? green, but lately all the socks I've been making have a lot of hot pink in them. I work at a preschool, so I wear jeans, anything goes colorwise.

Do you prefer solids or variegated? I like them both, it all depends on the pattern I am making.

Do you prefer wool, cotton or acrylic yarn? wool blends

What colors would you never wear? not solid orange.

What are your favorite brands of yarn? Lorna's Laces! Koigu
Are there any new brands you would like to try? There are so many out there that I haven't even had a chance to look at them all.

Cookie A. Patterns:
Which of her patterns have you already knit? None.
Which pattern(s) would you like to knit and don’t already own? Flicker, Mona or Gothic Spire

Other pertinent information:

Would you be willing to have an international Monkey Pal or do you prefer one in the US? Either is fine.

Do you have any allergies? Cats and ragweed.

Will your knitting be exposed to smoke or animals? No.

Are you on Ravelry yet? If you don’t mind having new friends, what is your Ravelry name? no, still waiting
