A friend showed me how to knit when I was in high school (the 1960's), and I've been knitting off and on since then. I've gotten help at knit shops for problems and a few techniques, but, mostly, I'm self-taught.
Wool of all kinds.
Scarves and blankets - if I were stranded on a deserted island, the pleasure of the process of knitting rather than having to work on proper fitting and style would be what I would enjoy.
A lifelong pleasure and interest.
I'm new to Austin and would like to meet some new friends who share my interest and love of knitting.
