Pick your poison: which fiber arts/crafts make your world complete?

Taking up knitting as a result of my husband's thoughtful Christmas gift of a knitting beginner's kit. He remembered me mention a few years ago that my grandma taught me knitting basics when I was a kid, and that I'd always wanted to return to it.

How long have you been addicted to said poison(s)?

Newly addicted after knitting with my grandma as a kid. It was awfully cool watching the beginner's knitting DVD and learning that the knitting style my grandma taught me was English style, which I bet is the style that her mom taught her. I love that this craft is so old and passed down from generation to generation.

Are there any crafts you'd like to learn next?

I dabbled in crochet as a kid and did a lot of cross-stitch. Maybe I'll check out crocheting again, but I'm not as interested in it as knitting. Used to love sewing too.

What are your hopes for this group?

I'm really excited to learn from others and to meet new friends.
