Longing for Spring Swap

I've joined a new swap! Perhaps, it's the somewhat warmer weather that's getting to me, but the Longing for Spring swap seemed perfect for this time of year. Sign ups are open until the 14th!

Swap Questionnare:

Do you knit or crochet? How long have you been at your craft?
I've been knitting for less than one year.

What are your favorite yarns/fibers? What are your least favorite yarns/fibers?
I've only knit with wool, yak and alpaca. Love them all. I don't have a least favorite, I just hate scratchy, splitty yarn.

What are your favorite colors? What are your least favorite colors?
Purple, teal, green, yellow. Dislike neon colors, orange, mustard yellow, etc.

What ‘warm weather’ project are you looking forward to making this year?
I've got a whole list in my queue on Ravelry for spring. Currently, I'm obsessed with making the Coquette lace tube top, or a tank top in general. There's only so much you can knit in the humidity down here.

What are you favorite scents? Least favorite?
Apples, cherry blossoms, anything that smells like dessert (think brown sugar or caramel).
Least favorite is vanilla or anything too strong/harsh.

What is your favorite flower?
Orchids and lillies.

What are you favorite spring time hobbies/activities?
I really enjoy just going out and walking around in DC in the spring. The cherry blossoms are the best part. I'm into photography and the warm weather allows for going out to shoot as well. 

Do you have a garden? If you do, tell us a little about it. Do you like to plant flowers or vegetables?
I wish I did. But its hard to maintain anything green or flowery in a dorm.

What are your favorite sweets?
Chocolate, for sure. Green apple is also one of my favorite flavors.

Do you collect anything?
Yarn. That's it. Haha.

Do you have any allergies?

Do you have any pets?
Sadly, we can't have pets in the dorms.
