Note- I NEVER flake! Please contact me before rating me as a "1" so I can try to fix the situation. I know that no one likes to be flaked on, so PLEASE, allow me the time to resend or otherwise remedy the case. Thank you!

My absolute favorite craft is crocheting! I love to crochet baby hats for charity. I also crochet for family and friends, and I have an Etsy shop where I sometimes sell things I crochet.
I just LOVE to read! My favorite genres are history, memoirs, cultural studies, historical fiction, short stories, poetry, and more. I am "coracalliope" on Goodreads. Please add me there!
Because I love to crochet, I need yarn!
I love to use: -worsted weight acrylics and acrylic blends -worsted weight wool and wool blends -super bulky acrylics -bright colors -bold colors -variegated yarns of all weights, fiber content, and colors
!!!Please be aware that I am allergic to alpaca yarn!!!
Note: Any yarn you send me that I cannot use will be donated or posted on FreeCycle.
I have pets! And they love to get mail. My babies are:
-Picasso Giovanna (greenwing macaw). Picasso lives at my dad's house. Luckily, his house is not far! It's a four mile drive away. Picasso is "bonded" with me and loves when I visit her. She enjoys parrot toys, dried fruit, nuts of all kinds (especially pine nuts! Her favorite), and parrot treats.
-Callie (muted calico cat). Callie is an adopted feline princess. My mom and I adopted her on January 31, 2012. I'm her Momma and my mom is her Mimi. Callie is a loving, happy cat who relaxes and comforts me and my mom. She likes cat nip, cat toys, and cat treats.
-Bert (African dwarf frog). Bert is my "college buddy" because I've had her since 2009, when I was in college. I bought her and her tank mate (RIP Fred) at a stationery store, where they were kept in a too-small cube-shaped tank. I upgraded their tank, although they eventually had to have separate tanks due to Bert's past issue with bloat. She doesn't need anything, but some fan mail would be much appreciated!
