Just a thing or two that wasn't covered in the e-mail.

First, how are you defining a skein? 109 yards? 200-something yards? 50 grams? 100 grams? 3 ounces?

And to clarify, by patterns we don't like, is that patterns we don't want to get, or patterns we don't want to knit?

First, the questionnaire is designed to help you as the knitter, pick something to knit for your secret Santa. So, when answering the question about what we would like to not knit, put an objects that you don't like and hence would not like to receive. By doing this, the person knitting your present will know what NOT to knit.

Second, a skein can vary, so use your discression. Most worsted weight yarns have 220 yards or so. For example, if you are using Noro, their skeins tend to be small, so two skeins would be okay. If you are using Cascade Eco wool, half a skein may be enough.

OK, but wouldn't it help better match people by knowing what people simpy don't have the skills for? For example, I wouldn't be thrilled to have to knit for someone who really really wants socks, as I don't know how to do socks yet and would be pretty much stuck disappointing them. Some of us can knit/crochet anything they set their minds to, but we also have a fair number of people who are just learning to knit.

YOU KNIT AT your level. If you are a newbie and can only make scarves, then you are knitting one BEAUTIFUL scarf as a present. If you feel like venturing out and experimenting, then we fellow PSKCers are here to help.

Personally, I hope to challenge myself by involving a little color work in whatever one-skein wonder I do
