Well, I got my secret pal, and apparently someone got me. They asked for my questionnaire info, which I was just waiting to post, so here goes:

I am a yarn snob, but my checkbook is not a snob.

I don’t care much for crochet. I would like to learn to spin, but don’t want to lose any knitting time

Three years, but only one have I been addicted.
