Alpaca, but I don't turn up my nose at silk if it comes my way
DP's for small projects. I've tried the "two socks on two circs" and ended up with a rat's nest of needles, cables and yarn. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Coffee in the morning, tea in the evening.
I love to LOOK at the beaded stitch markers, and I've made a few, but I usually use plain old empty jump rings.
Generally socks. I make a LOT of socks. Then, when I make mittens, they go so quickly, I think "why don't I make mittens more often". Then, I cast on another pair of socks.
Pullovers with as little "finishing" as possible.
