I've been HIT! Meme Style

Wow- I feel so COOL- I have seen the MeMes floating around blogville, but wasn't sure if I would ever answer one... Thanks to Becky for the tag! (can someone please tell me what meme stands for?)

Here we goooo...
What is your all-time favorite yarn to knit with? Probably have to say the Andean Tressure from Knit Picks or Cashmerino by Debbie Bliss. Although I do love my wool (cascade) for felting!

Your favorite needles? I love my Clover Bamboo circs- that is about all I buy. I would like to gather more of the Addis but they are $$

The worst thing you've ever knit? hmmm, probably the attempted yoga bag from SnB Nation. It was only my second pattern and I thought I could master a lace stitch- as always, my ambitions get me into over my head- Here is a picture of the thing. I don't have the heart to frog it- I am thinking it would make a good beach bag, just cinch up the bottom and add an I-cord for a handle.. whatta-ya think?

Your most favorite knit pattern? I would have to say the hat I made for Kicky, or maybe the Fixie. Can I tell you what I WANT my favorite pattern to be? How 'bout the the mini sweater? I want it I want it now...

Best knit book or magazine? I am loving my Alterknits book and I also really like Weekend Knits and Knitted Gifts (both of which I don't own, but borrowed from the library and forgot to return so I now have a HUGE fee to pay, booo!) I also think we need to give props to all those great patterns found at

Your favorite knitblogs?
Needles on Fire (like her patterns and commentary, Xtreme Knitting (again for the patterns, and she uses her British jargin in her writing that I like) Knitfish (because her name is Vanessa too), Subway Knitter, PunkRawkPurl , umm there are just too many to list here... The two lady's I mentioned above (Becky and Whit). But I mostly just float from one blog to the next- and don't have one that I read all the time...
Your favorite knit-along? I haven't really done a knit along, unless you count my first knitting class when we all worked on our hats together. I was thinking about doing the Mary Poppin's Bag with Whit, but I fear that I am time challenged and it just won't happen (this is probably the reason behind not doing a knit along ever!)

Your favorite knitwear designer? I love to look at Debbie Bliss stuff, and I LOVE Glampyre too.

The knit item you wear/use the most? my fingerless gloves (which are eyed with suspicion or envy from those around me- I either get, those are really cute- can you make me a pair?, or do those really keep your hands warm?)
