Huzzah Hufflepuff!

I love the little House Quizzes from the HSKS 6 blog. It's a fun way to learn about my housemates' lives without having to read every one of their blog posts. Easy and fun - that's for me.

2. How long have you been at your craft? I've been knitting for about twelve years and crocheting for just one.
3. Do you spin? If yes do you use drop spindle or wheel. Yes. I have spindles but I much prefer my Lendrum double treadle model.

5. Do you have any other hobbies? Yes. I am a triathlete and open water swimmer. I also love reading and baking.
