Secret Pal 4 questions!

1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer high- a nd/natural fibers)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? Or is it all the same to you?
I am NOT a yarn snob! I love ALL fibers. However, I do prefer a decent quality soft acrylic over a plasticy one.

No, but I am DYING to learn how to do both!
3. Do you have any allergies? (smoke, pets, fibers, perfume, etc.)

About 5 or so years.

5. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?
Yes! Here 'tis
