Knittyboard sock swap - part deux

I'm in the second sock swap hosted on the Knittyboard. I had so much fun the first time, so there was no doubt in my mind I would have to sign up for the second one.

This time round I have two great swap partners Stariel and Suemoon.

My answers to this rounds sock swap questionaire are as follows:

1.Are you sensitive to any fibres? Any you don't like? Any you need to take private time with?
I'm not a great believer of alpaca in socks, other than that I suppose anything goes. All my hand knit socks so far have been wool or wool blend. Maybe it's time to try something new?

2.What colors do you prefer?
I prefer clean colours or "jewel tones" to "earth tones". I like wild and wacky colour combos too.

3. Variegated, striped, plain with texture, plain and silky? variegated that pools?
Yes to all of the above.

4.Where do you normally wear your hand-made socks?
Around the house? Yes
To work with comfy sensible shoes? During winter
Out with pumps and minis? Nope. I generally don't do pumps nor minis.

5.If you could leave your partner and run off with only one sock yarn, which would it be and why? Run off? Why? He'll hopefully accept my newfound love and invite the cute yarn bundle to come live with us. After all, we are "living in sin" already.

6.What are your foot measurements? And what height do you like your socks to be? I'm a size Eur 36/37 in shoes, foot on the narrower end of the scale. For the last swap I measured my foot. It is 24,5 cm from heel to toe. (Gee, this is getting kind of personal, no?)I like my socks on the taller side, calf lenght maybe.

7.Who is your favorite sock designer? Who's patterns do you knit the most??
I like socks, all socks!

8.what weight of sock do you like, fine, medium, or thick?
See above...
