Here is the questionnaire for Secret Pal 10:
1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?
I love all yarn...there never seems to be enough of it! I can't say that there is a yarn that I absolutely do NOT like. I can't seem to leave my LYS without some sort of sock yarn...it's my version of candy! My husband bought Arctic Lace for me for Valentine's Day. I have yet to buy any lace weight yarn to make any of the gorgeous patterns, but I am trying to finish some of my UFOs.

My needles are in a case that my hubby gave me for Christmas a few years ago.
