I'm a knitter too!

And re: socks: I've knit socks for swaps before but only worsted weight boot type socks. Those tend to take about as much time as mittens and I really like knitting socks (and I have a ton of worsted weight yarn). So whoever ends up being my partner: Socks are okay if you're okay with thick ones. For me anyway. Other knitters will vary.

Well, there ya go then.  It seems we have a pretty even amount of knitters and crocheters, so you could put in your questionnaire what you'd like that way, but I'm not promising anything!!!  And thank you knitters for your input on mediums!  I forgot to mention cowls, ya, they would be a medium too. 

We've now got twice as many yarnies than hoopers, so if we get another yarnie before a hooper then I think I may stall the yarnie side for a bit.  But keep em comin in for now!!!!

Would this be considered a large item to knit? I will be working on filling out my questionaire tomorrow.

hmmmm.....I don't know, its knit and its very pretty, but crochet-wise I would say a bolero would be a medium, but that one looks like a bolero PLUS a cowl.....I'm thinking it MIGHT be a large, but you can also tell its worked with a larger needle so it may work up quicker.......Apparantly I have no answer hahahah!! Sorry!

That looks like it's a garter stitch rectangle, on ginormous needles, with zero shaping and only a little bit of sewing. I'd consider that a medium, maybe a large, depending on the kind of yarn I used and how fiddly it was. With the yarn used on that one in particular, definitely a medium for me. Smiley

I'd agree with that, but for me personally, I would have to figure in the yarn any given thing requires. I swap from my (fairly sizable) stash and I'm sure I'd have the right yarn. Hats though, I'm all over hats.

Another hooper here! More of an embroiderer than a cross-stitcher. Though I can do both.  Cheesy

I am excited. All I can crochet are squares or rectangles and I can't read patterns... so I knew I didn't qualify for a yarnie, at least not yet.  Wink
