I would choose color 3001.
Glad to see 2019 coming to an end. It was a sad, stressful, scary, tearful year. 2020 brings a promise of new life, love, light and hopefully much laughter. My goals for 2020 are simple...take care of myself, be the Best New Grandma, and Mom, spend loads of time in nature and spend lots of time knitting and doing all the fiber crafts that bring me joy. It's going to be fabulous! :)

Most of my knitting has been for family. I've also had commissioned items. I have also donated a large amount of my yarn to spread the love.

I craft alone. Would love to find "my people". The groups that I have found are either too far away or get together when I am working. I have a niece who also says that there aren't many crafters around. We may just start our own group.

I have a huge stash. I always have more than one project on my needles or hook. Unless it's a commissioned order, those get priority, until they are done. I also always have a project in my car. As for purchasing...always on the hunt. With absolutely NO GUILT. I usually treat myself to fancy stuff for Christmas. Some of your yarn is under my studio tree as I type! :D

I love to bake fresh apple and pumpkin pies. Also, cookies. Everyone has a favorite from Raspberry ribbons, to candy canes and chocolate mint. Thankfully, lots of them go home with my kids. I also gift a lot...

No...But if asked I would suggest a LARGE gift certificate. I would buy cash, merino,silk blends...and a load of minis (I don't own any), and project bags that I would love to get, with stitch markers, maybe a club subscription. WOW!!

I have not knit a shawl in quite a while. Those colors are wonderful! I've been knee deep in blankets, (knit and crochet)but now, starting to knit wee little things... :)

I've been knitting for about 6 years. Self taught. I would really would like to knit an actual pair of socks. Don't know why I haven't taken the jump yet. My first ever knitted item was a cabled scarf, the second was a brioche wrap. I would also like to knit a sweater one day.
I'd pair together Frost and Rumor.

I would definitely would prefer to have a DK weight shawl. I would choose Oak, Court and Spark and Life in Mars... I also love the colors Joji made her Odyssey Shawl with. I'm in the middle of a Winter Windstorm (Upstate NY), at the moment. It has been a very long winter.
