Sock-ret Pal Questionnaire

In my theme of being a joiner, I joined Sockret pal. It should be great fun and we got our matches yesterday, so here is my questionnaire!

The basics:
How long have you been knitting? I've been knitting for about 3 years.
Do you consider yourself a beginning sock knitter, an intermediate, or have you been doing this so long you could probably knit a pair in your sleep? I would guess and intermediate sock knitter. I've knit a lot of socks, but I know I'm not the queen of all sockdom.

The measurements:
While your pal may ask for some additional info to ensure a great fit, please provide your shoe size, or any other fitting related info you think is pertinent. The ball of my foot is about 8 inches around and then length is about 9. I wear a 6.5 to size 7 shoe.

(fiber related) Favorites:
What colors do you love? I love pink, but I'm pretty open to all colors.
Do you prefer solids or variegated? I like both.
What fibers do you most love to knit with? Most fibers, I'm not a huge fan of squeaky acrylic.
Who do you consider your favorite yarn vendors? Brooklyn Handspun, Elann are two of my favs, I've bought a lot lately from my LYS because I now live somewhere with a LYS, otherwise, I just buy where ever has a good deal on what specific yarn I'm looking for
What projects (other than socks, of course*S*) do you most enjoy knitting? I've been knitting a lot of baby stuff for the baby, and trying to get back into knitting some adult knits, I'm excited for fall knitting

(fiber related) Dislikes:
What fibers can you not stand to knit with? To wear? NOt a huge fan of acrylic
What colors would you never wear? yellow, not the best with my skin tone

The Tools:
Plastic or Metal? Bamboo or wood? Depends on what I am doing, I'm in love with addis now
Circs or Straights? Circs
DPNs or Magic Loop? 2 needles
Are there any knitting accessories you don't have in your collection but would like? I can't think of any, but there is always room for more and I always loose things!

The Extras:
Do you have a wish list? If so, please share the link! I have an amazon wish list, but it has been awhile since I've updated it
Do you like sweet, sour or salty? (or all of the above? *S*) all of the above ;)
Do you have any allergies your pal should know about? (Certain foods, smoke, pet hair, etc) nope
Favorite scents? Scents you can't stand? lavender, rose, and vanilla
Do you collect anything (other than yarn and knitting toys of course)? china from the 1950s
When is your birthday? (month and day is fine!) October 15th
Do you spin? Dye your own yarn? I'm learning how to spin on a spindle, I'm not very good at it yet. I've dyed my own yarn a couple of times, but not on a regular basis
Your favorite author/band/vacation spot, anything you think will help your pal know you better... I listen to a lot of classical music, but I also love Jack Johnson, DMB, the Killers and James Blount.

Greetings, Gracie, from your upstream Sockret Pal!! Um, I will be sending you an email, as soon as I figure out how to get a supersecret email address. I'm not the quickest person with the computer stuff, but I'll get it sorted out eventually! I'm really looking forward to spoiling you...and, I'm happy to say, our feets are exactly the same size! That will make it really easy to make socks for you! Yay!

You'll be hearing from me soon! ;)

--Your Sockret Pal :)
