not yet.

do you tend to favor certain fibers when choosing yarns?
no pure synthetic fiber - otherwise no favourites.

i don´t have any preferences like this.

  2. Hi there Kiki,
    I am your one skein Secret pal. Thanks so much for filling this questionnaire it has already given me some ideas. I must admit to a small sigh of relief to realise you speak English, although I lived in Germany for a couple of years as a child I remember nothing of the language. I'm so provincial that way. I will look forward to following your blog, especially pictures. Have a lovely weekend.
