my very first SP competition

Our hostess Jenn had the idea for a competition and since my questionaire is up since nearly a month, it�s only some questions to do for me.

Here we go:

1. What is the one knitting accessory you could not live without?

one? I have three: my chibi sewing needle case, my row counters and most important the fabric shopping bag (cotton, not closable) where I have my take-with-me knitting in.

2. If you're heading on vacation, do you take knitting with you? If
so, how much and what type of project?

of course!
In my last vacation which was at the end of June till the 10th of July, I took 7 skeins for winding with me and a bag full of small projects. This were 2 headbands (one blue linen from a USA yarn swap for my mum, a darkred merino lace one), 2 different socks (both are handdyed sock yarns - one is called "Cuban nights" and is a stripey one with each row another colour and the other one is from the first series of "colours for men" and is in different blue shades for my boyfriend and the difficulty is that he wants me to knit a elastic into the first rows like in bought socks) and a crocheted darkred berret, which still isn�t big enough.

3. Where have you travelled to that you'd consider your favorite spot?

Despite my age I�ve been a lot around the world already, but I think I have three favourite spots:
the city Bourgas and its beach in Bulgaria, which is my birthcountry
the island of Rugia in the Baltic Sea which is so small and so big and so extremely beautifull
Ueno park and the Meji shrine in Tokyo - Tokyo was so enjoyable at all but this spots are special

hey, now that I see this, all have something in common: water around or in it and plenty of green

4. What is your favorite knitting book at the moment? Do you own it?

there are two of them: one skein wonders, which I own and have used to knit several things and some more to come from and the "knitted embellishments" book from Nicky Epstein which I unfortunately don�t own but totally adore.

5. Do you listen to podcasts? Which is your favorite(s)?

Funnily enough, I started a german one for our magazine yesterday, with installation, homepage customization, recording, editing and everything by myself. Have a look here if you want to hear my voice:

For knitting I love the KnitCast from Toronto

Wow, I�m through it. And I am quite excited, my first knit related competition ever.
