Colorswap Questionnaire

Color Swap Survey
In order to help your partner learn more about you, please post this survey and your answers to your blog:

1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer high-end/natural fibers)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? Or is it all the same to you?

2. Do you spin? Crochet?
I do not spin, seems interesting but I just don't have that kind of time currently, maybe later....I crochet alot, not as much as knitting but I do crochet.
