Who taught you how to knit/crochet and how long have you been doing it?

My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was 4. I started with hot-pads and washrags and advanced to afghans, hats, fun attachable beards and everything in between. Through the years I actually never learned to read patterns but instead created through techniques my grandma had taught me & also made projects based on memory. I always loved knitted work but didn't have anyone to teach me, so 2 years ago I decided it was time to teach myself via... wait for it...YouTube! Gotta love YouTube, you can learn how to do anything on there. From there I also taught myself how to finally read crochet patterns & a whole new world opened up =) Now, I'm just a yarnaholic through and through.

What's your favorite fiber?

Oh, that's like asking what is my favorite song. There are too many choices to be limited to just one.

If you were stranded on a deserted island with loads of cashmere and rosewood needles (or hooks), what would you make?

A cocoon like hammock to wrap myself in naked and feel like I'm living the life of pure unfiltered luxury.

For you, does knitting/crocheting seem like it's going to be a passing fancy or a lifelong passion? (Hint: If you've been doing it for more than 3 years, I think we already have your answer.) :)

Hmmm, well, it's only been close to 30 years since my addiction of yarn started, but, I think it's possible that it might only be a fad.

In which part of Austin do you live? (N, NW, Central, S, SW, Lakeway, Cedar Park, etc.)

Introduction

My husband & I made a family decision to move, so good bye Northwest, hello Austin & “Wallah! ” here we are. We're still new to the area but so far we have been impressed. I'm settled in-now it's time to get my big girl panties on & meet new people!
