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

My grandmother & mom taught me to knit when I was a kid, but I am left-handed so it was frustrating for them , so I quit and converted to Rt handed knitting when I was 21 ( under the guidance of my very patient roommate ).

What's your favorite fiber?

Wool and any combo thereof....

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

Socks, and 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.) :)

Knitting very relaxing and my creative outlet- hope to die with a pair of gorgeous Zen Yarn Garden socks on the needles, in my cold, dead hands!


Live in SW Austin, work as a Rad tech in a busy ER. Been knitting for 33 yrs. love knitting socks and all garments. My first knitted project was a stranded adult sweater- over it!
