There's an interview meme going on in the blogs, so here are the questions Villapallo asked me and my answers translated into English:
1. How much yarn do you have at the moment? (Give at least an estimate if you haven't counted them.)
When I counted my yarns more than a year ago, I had about 20 kg if them and I bet the amount has not decreased since. I'm currently at work, so I cannot check, so I'd say "over 25 kgs at least".
2. What is the yarn you would not knit from, not ever = the yarn you loathe?
Any cheap acrylic that is cold in the winter and makes you sweat in the summer. I cannot recall any yarn names! At the moment Lana Grossa Velvet does not make me feel very positive either: it snaps and worms and it's very slippery, so dropping a stich is a mistake you regret for a very long time.
3. Who is your favourite knitwear designer? (Pick only one!)
I have to admit that I do not have an absolute favourite. There are many people whose work I admire but I cannot choose only one.
4. What is a thing you haven't tried yet and would you definitely like to do?
Does this have to be knitting-related? If not, a hot air balloon ride would be fun - or I could go and raise sheep in Scotland or travel to Iceland...
5. Following the foreign knitting blogs' examples: how did you and Jussi meet for the first time?
It's something I haven't told to my relatives! Some people do know the details, but suffice to say that it's thanks to common interests: the Internet and science fiction. (Does that surprise anyone?)
Passing the meme on: do you want to be interviewed? Leave me a comment and I'll ask you five questions.
Kommentit - Comments
Mira, you're welcome. I write in English all day at work, so blogging in English is not a problem to me at all. :)
Science fiction then... To name a few of my favourite authors I could say, for example, Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, Ray Bradbury and Stanislav Lem - and of course Douglas Adams. (I like the old school stories where you travel in space, I'm not that much into cyberpunk or virtual reality genre excet for the movie The Matrix.) If I cross the line to fantasy, I like also Terry Pratchett, and Neil Gaiman is my absolute favourite.
Wow you have a lot of yarn. That's about 50 pounds. Of course I haven't checked how much I have....so perhaps I shouldn't speak.
And who is your favorite science fiction author? I'm a big science fiction fan myself.
Lastly, thanks for taking the time to translate your entries into English. I like reading your blog.
