January 2010 - Apologies to my swap partners about the delay, my basement was flooded over Christmas/New Years, and we've been playing catch up since. If I haven't contacted you, please let me know, I should have my swaps caught up within the week.
Australian living in New Jersey with my husband. I like knitting and reading and cooking and (occasionally) gardening. I'm always interested in trying new foods and lollies (candies) and try to make myself a new recipe every couple of weeks. I have pretty relaxed language, although I will try not to swear in front of your small children, your Mum or your Nanna!

I'm not bothered by swearing or strong language in music, if it's integral to the swap theme, you know?

knitting, beading, and a smidge of crochet. I'm also a brand new spinner with a small but steadily increasing stash of roving. Just a drop spindle so far, but that's how it starts...
I like all yarn, but prefer soft to scratchy. If you can rest it next to the neck of a small child, and count to 10, and they don't start fiercely scratching? That's my yarn.
I make many small things (scarves, hats, dishcloths) so single skeins work well for me. Hand dyed yarn is very cool, and I'm working my way over to doing that too.
I like most colours, red and purple being favourites. I love all teas, and am fine with caffeine. Lip gloss, lip balm, anything of that nature I love! I always have one in my pocket, and one in my coat, and one in my bag and so on and so on.
Candles make me sneeze. I'm not a fan of cherry flavoured foods, other than actual cherries, it tastes like medicine to me. Wintergreen isn't my cup of tea, and coffee's wasted on me (it tastes bitter, and I end up having to put too many sugars in it). I don't like artificial sweeteners.
I don't use any cosmetics other than lipgloss/lip balm and my basic moisturisers. The only cosmetics I use on my hands is hand cream - no nail polish.
NOTE: If you're ever running late with a swap, just send me a note, I know things happen. I'm trying to fill out more of my profile, but I like just about everything! I'm siging up for these swaps because I'm interested to see what other people send to me. Really, if I wanted exactly what I can buy for myself, I'd do just that. Stuff from people who aren't me, different from me, that's a cool thing. If I can see you put thought into your swap, that's the real meaning of these swaps for me.
Christmas Afghan Swap - I'm using Victorian Colours
Friendship Afghan - I like jewel tones, not pastels, and not the neons. The colours you see in Amish quilts, rich reds and greens and blues and purples, those sorts of colours.
