Hogwarts Swap Questionnaire

Yay! I've joined another knitting swap, since my needles really wanted to get more sock knitting done.

What Hogwarts house have you been sorted into?
This time, I'm in Slytherin. I don't know why, but I tend to get sorted into Ravenclaw, Slythernin, and Gryffindor about equally. I'm not nice enough to get placed into Hufflepuff. Hee hee.

Shoe size
6 US.

Foot Length
Foot length: 22cm

Foot circumference
Foot circumference: 21.5cm
And just in case you'd like it -- widest part of the foot: 8.3cm

List your three favorite double-pointed needle brands, including size and length
Hmm. This is a tricky question, because I utilize the magic loop method to knit my socks, not double pointed needles. I typically used double pointed needles like a crochet hook, when I need to fix my yarn or like a cable needle to hold it while doing something else.

The dpns I use are:
* Crystal palace bamboo 6", typically US1
* Lantern Moon 7", typically US1
* Brittany Birch 5" knitting needles, typically US1

My knitting needle of choice for sock knitting (especially since I prefer to do lacework with my socks) are Addi Turbo Lace, 32" US1.

Would you like to try a brand new needle? If so, which brand? Size? Length?
Sure! I'd love to try Skacel's steel dpns (US1) or any 4" dpns, like Suzanne's (wood and a bit on the pricey side... and they are for "gloves" so they are larger) or HiyaHiya's 4" dpns (US1, I think they are stainless steel). If you'd like to get me a circular needle, then addi lace in any size 47" lengths (which I don't have yet) would be absolutely brilliant too.

US1s are my needle size of choice and I typically have multiple projects, so I know that any needles I receive will be used and loved.

Allergies? Do you have any? Will your knitting be exposed to smoke or animals?
I have no allergies. My home is a smoke and pet-free zone, although I do have a LOT of wool yarn and fiber (I spin to) lying about, so I'd be concerned if my sock partner is allergic to wool.

Are you an international participant (outside US)? Are you willing to have an international Hogwarts Sock Pal?
I am from the US, so I'm not an international participant. I would love to have an international partner!
