My husband is an avid gamer and while dating I taught myself to knit to occupy myself while "watching" him play games. I had a Leisure Arts intro to knitting book. It took an entire day to learn to cast on and knit 5 rows of 20 knit stiches.
I am starting to lean towards bamboo/silk blends, but my stand by is 100% merino wool.
I'd say I'd make lots of cardigans and stuffed animals. I'd need to make animals to talk to; like a herd of 'Wilsons'. :)
It is a lifelong passion, but I get derailed by 2nd sock syndrone and end weaving. The scrapbook/cardmaking and sewing obsessions are also distractions.

I'm Nitknit, a wife & mom who loves to collect yarn and knitting stuff. Pre-kids I used to finish projects, but nowadays I have more UFOs. I like to roam Ravelry and secretly stash sock yarn. My hope is to get out of the house and actually knit!
