What’s your name on Ravelry? If you don’t have a Ravelry account, why?

Do you do any other crafts besides knitting? What are they, and did learning to knit come before or after learning these other crafts?

Well as I have renamed this knitting and crochet challenge you already know I also crochet.

I’m also enjoying paper crafts but it’s a new thing I’m trying, I make my own arrows for the bow.

I’m always open to new crafts 🙂

How do you acquire most of yarn? Online retailers, local yarn shops, swaps, or large chain craft stores? What’s your favorite?

I usually shop at local stores where I love to feel the yarn before buying it.

I also shop on Etsy and on other online stores.

There are no large chain craft stores where I live so that option is out.

Out of those I prefer the local yarn stores 🙂

Have you ever made your own pattern or dyed your own yarn? How did it turn out?

I did make a jellyfish amigurumi pattern, I also posted it on this blog. I think I should rewrite it, after reading other patterns I know I can make it clearer.

But I don’t want to write patterns it’s not my passion, I knit and crochet to relax 🙂

30 days of knitting&crochet day 22

Have you ever stricken someone off your to-knit-for list because they didn’t appreciate/take care of your last knitted gift to them?

See day 22 I have given 4/5 knitted/crocheted gifts to avoid this problem

I think my sister does not appreciate her scarf enough but it’s probably because she changed style and she’s young so that’s ok, I forgive her.

Do you knit gifts for friends and family for the holidays or birthdays?

I did, I made a scarf for my mum, sister and grandmother and a couple of small thing for my SO but that’s it.

I work and study full time, the things I find time to work on are for me.

I will probably make more things for my family but they know that I’ll do them when I want if I want and that I love them anyway 🙂

I’ve read of many people that ended up really upset because they made a homemade gift and it was not appreciated enough so I’m ok with keeping the good stuff for myself.
