A New Blog to Join

I found this swap over on Spinningsue's blog and I immediately thought it was a great idea and signed up. (It involves books and crafts - what's not to like?)

1. What genre of books do you enjoy most? (i.e. mystery, romance, horror, historical, biographies, autobiographies, fantasy, sci-fi, etc)
I read the classics when I can and love historical fiction. I have to admit I am hooked on detective stories as well and own every Agatha Christie :-)

2. What sort of bookmarks do you like best? (long, short, lacy/elegant, fun/cute, corner, tasselled, etc)
All of 'em!

3. What are your favorite colors?
In a bookmark - anything (but not too lurid)

4. Are there any colors you don't like?

5. What sort of "theme'' would you like your bookmark to be?
I don't have any particular preferences.

6. Are there any "themes'' that you wouldn't like??
Not really into the kitsch and cutesy.

7. Can you send internationally?
Definitely (I wouldn't have many people to send to otherwise!!)

8. If your partner wants to send along extra goodies (like tea, candy, cocoa, etc), what do you enjoy? And is there anything you don't like/can't have??
Oooooh chocolate all the way :-P and interesting teas are good too, not allergic to anything.

9. What crafts are you going to use to make your bookmarks? Is there a particular craft type you would like to receive? (knitted bookmarks, plastic canvas, etc)
I will probably knit a lot, but expect I will also use them as a chance to experiment with different techniques. I don't mind what I get.

If you're interested, check out the link at the side. It should be great fun!

Must go knit some more ...

Ciao :-)

You bought lace-weight? I'm proud and honoured that I have inspired yet another knitter to get into the lace department. You get such a bang-for-the-buck. The silk for the WRS cost £15 and will probably keep me going for at least a year. Hope Branching Out goes well.
