Wow- 2 posts in a month!

I joined a knitalong that will help me keep this blog in better shape! I'm doing the Big Bag Knitalong and Swap. Here's the questionnaire...

Do you knit, crochet, or do both? For how long?Just knit for about 5 years.
What other crafts do you do, if any??Photography/Scrapbooking/Cooking/Reading
What are your favorite colors? Colors you loathe??I like brights; not too fond of pastels
Favorite yarn brands? Fiber types? Yarn you can't stand??Love Brown Sheep;Not a fan of Lion Brand
What is your favorite type of item to knit/crochet??I'd rather say that I'm not fond of socks right now and I've never knitted a sweater
What kind of needles do you like? (i.e. circular, straight, metal, bamboo, etc.)?I prefer circs and I have the KnitPicks Options that I love
Any knitting tools you lack but crave??Can always use stitch markers
Patterns you've been dying to get but haven't yet??The Lucy bag
Do you drink coffee, tea, cocoa? Flavors you love/hate??Only drink water- don't like hot drinks and I don't add stuff to my water
Favorite sweets & snacks?sorry to make this difficult but I'm on a diet and moving soon so I'm avoiding that stuff for my hips and the moving truck!
Any pets, kids, spouses? Spouses that act like pets or kids? (j/k)?I hubby who'll be gone off and on until June in prep for his next job, 2 daughters- 1 teen and 1 tween and 1 old cat
Favorite things to knit/crochet for the above, if applicable??The daughters have both recently learned how to knit but I'm about to start some afghans for them
What kinds of books do you like to read? Favorite authors or genres??Lots- history, historical fiction, romance
Do you collect anything? (besides yarn! LOL!)?Cat's Meow houses of places we've visited, baskets, my college's yearbooks prior to 1950
What, if any, are your non-craft related hobbies??Like before- cooking, reading, photography

What is your idea of a relaxing time??spending a day at my day spa and going out to lunch
Oh yeah, are you on Ravelry and if so, care to share your Ravelry ID??yes, I am. Castelfam

I also finished a hat- a 76-stitches hat from a 2004 issue of Interweave Knits. I had some Manos Del Uruguay that I bought about 2 years ago to make a few. Here's the first one...76 stitches hat 2008
I actually made one of these as one of my first knitted projects and fell in love with it. I have enough yarn to make at least one more if not another.

For my library friends, I think you will enjoy this.
