Punk Rock Gift Exchange Questions

1. Why are you punk?

Because I married my ex-wife in a white dress and ten-hole doc martins. Because I got my 5 year old son a mohawk when he said he wanted a "cool" haircut. Because I am me and sometimes that means a leather corset and mini skirt with chains and zippers and sometimes that means a pink t-shirt and ruffly skorts.

2. What are your five favorite things? (these don't have to be knit related)

my son
my partner

bamboo yarn
a swift
Andy Goldsworthy book
crystal palace circular needles
Grains of Paradise (spice)

5. What are your three favorite yarns? What are your three least favorite yarns?

Favorites: Joseph Galler Peruvian Alpaca tweed, Dark Horse Fantasy, Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande
