5. What sort of needles or hooks do you enjoy using? Any you just detest? It depends on the project
6. Are there any particular notions you absolute do NOT need? Some of us swap a lot - are you sure that you have enough tape measures to last your lifetime?

I'm always misplacing my notions, and I love to have some for every knitting bag..There are times I grab a bag to take and the notions are MIA
7. You walk into the yarn shop and have exactly and only enough money to purchase 2 skeins of yarn in their 2 for 20 special they have going..The choices are a soft, thick cotton/viscose blend in your favorite colors, slightly variegated..a beautiful sock yarn that's just squishy and sproingy in your hands.. a soft, worsted weight wool like malabrigo.. and a lovely bamboo blend with colors to just die for. Which do you walk out the door with? Now that is a tough question, I guess I'd have to eeny meeny miney moe the yarns, lol
