My Baby - A - Baby Swap Questionnaire

1) What is your favorite yarn? Favorite colors? What is your least favorite?
  • Favorite Yarn - Currently worsted weight wool, either Patons Classic or Knit Picks Wool of the Andes
  • Favorite Colors - Pink for baby stuff, most shades. Black, burgundy, jewel tones for other things
  • Least Favorites - Yarn: Fun Fur/Eyelash yarn!! Blech!! Colors: Mustard yellow, bright orange
2) Knit, crochet, both?
  • Both
3) How long have you been knitting/crocheting? Who taught you? Why did you want to learn?
  • Been knitting and crocheting for about 20 years
  • First mother-in-law taught me granny squares, everything else I self taught, including knitting
  • Why? I'm not sure! I've always been creatively driven though.
4) What is your favorite snack/sweet?
  • Just one? Hmm.... well, for sweets, I'm partial to Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and their new whipped candy bar. For snacks, I love, love, love Cheez-Its... regular or white cheddar. Hate the knock-offs, like Cheese NIPS... blech.
5) What did you want to be when you grew up?
  • You know, I really don't recall. My mother says she doesn't recall any specific things I mentioned either.
6) What names would you NEVER consider for a baby?
  • As I've seen several people mention, I'm not going to list specific names because I don't want to offend anyone too much. But I'm a fan of traditional, normal, CORRECTLY SPELLED (sorry, that one is a pet peeve) names. I have: Christopher, Patrick, Justin, Melissa, Sarah, Molly, Michael and Abigail.
7) What things did you, as a child, vow to never to do your children, but have since decided that you will? For example, we weren't allowed sugar-coated cereal growing up and I told my parents I'd NEVER do that to my kids. After some life experience, I think my parents were pretty smart in that decision.
  • Swore I'd never make my kids eat vegetables. LOL! Needless to say, they eat more of them than I do.
8) What is your favorite thing about being a parent/expectant parent?
  • Snuggles, hugs & kisses

Hi Dee,

This is your swap partner! I'm looking forward to spoiling you and little Abigail in this swap! I hope the birth went well and that you are resting and recuperating as much as possible (which I imagine isn't a whole lot with 8 kiddos!)

Take care of yourself!
