Crafting Q&A

I lifted this knitting/crocheting/crafting q & a from Nothing But Knit. She posts nifty Questions and Answers from time to time, and it’s always interesting reading the different answers 🙂  I’ll post my answers here – feel free to answer in the comments or to carry it over to your own blog and answer them there! If you are not a crafter, feel free to answer with regard to any hobby you have.

  1. Do you have a favorite crafting tool?
  2. Which do you prefer when you craft: listening to a podcast or music, watching something on tv or silence?
  3. Do you have a favorite designer that you’d like to recommend?
  4. Most people have a favorite color, do you find you use it more than other colors? Is there a color you avoid? Why?
  5. Have you experienced a crafting injury? If yes, what.


Here are my answers:

  1. I have a couple different tools that I am very possessive of – a little scissor I have had for a long time that has a kind of fun backstory, a couple of knitting needle sets that are special in one way or another – but I think my favorites are my Karbonz interchangeable knitting needle set.  They are smoother and “faster” than wood or bamboo, but much nicer to my hands than metal.
  2. Mostly when I am crafting the TV or a movie is on.  Listening to music or a podcast is also OK, but not what I would prefer.
  3. Amy Herzog and Elsebeth Lavold are my current favorite designers – they both have a great aesthetic and design garments that are not only beautiful and interesting, but also reasonable to wear.
  4. Black and gray are my favorite colors, but I don’t knit whole garments of them too frequently. I do stick with the cool colors and avoid the warm ones.  (Those of you who remember Color Me Beautiful know what I am talking about here!)
  5. I haven’t ever had a big crafting injury.  Just poked up fingers from embroider, twingy hands and forearms from knitting marathons – that sort of thing.

Looking forward to reading your answers!

  1. If you went and read all her comments you have seen my answers, but I will add here, while I said my sewing machine is my fav at the moment, in the knitting realm I love my Knitter’s Pride wood interchangeables. But I have not tried the Karbonz, so maybe I need to try a pair. I used to adore Addi Turbos, but the metal is too slippery, especially when turning cables without a cable needle, so now I prefer the wood tips. I don’t even want to think about how many “sets” of needles I have purchased over the last 18 years!!! LOL I have a bait bag full of unused double points and fixed cable needles.
