"I hate waiting."

As you might guess, I'm a bit impatient. I had hoped that picking up a pair of knitting needles would help me learn about the virtue of patience... but it seems I just want my projects to go along as quickly as possible.

Needle Exchange

1. What do you like to knit or crochet? (socks, sweaters, etc.)

I've knit a couple tank tops, some scarves, and a pair of socks. I'm attempting my first sweater (Rogue) in August.
2. What fibers do you like?
I love wool, and anything soft. Squeaky fibers (most 100% acrylics and some silk blends) make me shudder.

3. What type of needles do you use most often?
Who doesn't love them some Addis? I love both the Turbos and the Naturas.
I also love Brittany DPNs, and covet my one pair of Lantern Moons.

4. Do you like to knit in the round?
I prefer to knit in the round...saves on seaming...

5. Do you use a magic loop method or any other we should know about? Are you interested in learning a new method?
I would love to learn a new method. I use DPNs for socks, but am intrigued by
the magic loop method.

7. Do you have a favorite place that you shop online? (knitpicks.com, knitpixie.com, jimmybeanswool.com....)?
I buy from WEBs yarn and Ebay most often. I am trying to convince my wallet
that I can afford a shipment from knitpicks.

I thought I would add what needle sizes I have already, just in case

DPNs: I have sizes 1-6. but not 1 1/2. I have longer DPNs (6-7")
but want to try shorter ones.

Circs: I have size 3-9. my size 7s are the only pair of addi naturas, and they're only 12" long. the rest are at least 24" long.

Straights: I use these less and less frequently. I have size 6, 7, 8, 10.5s, and 15s.
I prefer shorter ones, since I only use them for scarves.
