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

My grandmother (actually great-grandmother). I have been a crocheter on and off since I was about twelve. I did most while I was in college and haven't done too much in the years since. It annoys me to know that if I had kept up I would have been a master by now! Or at least, really good!

What's your favorite fiber?


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

A huge tent, a coverall, a towel, a blanket.

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.) :)

I don't think it is a passing fancy. I really miss it but I am so rusty that I can't figure out what I am doing. I have started so many times but can't finish my project because I get stuck and with my grandmother gone, I have no one to ask.


I'm Emily. I love to crochet, would love to learn to knit. My daughter wants me to teach her but I am seriously out of practice and have forgotten so much! I would really like to get back into it, especially since my mom has been asking for a scarf!
