My mother taught me to knit the "German" (now called continental )way when I was about 10 years old (more than 50 years ago). I rediscovered knitting when I was in college. I taught myself how to crochet in my twenties.
wool, alpaca are my favorites
Probably a light lacy shawl.
Life long passion!
I have been knitting and crocheting for many years. I enjoy both crafts. I've taken several classes since I moved to Austin. I'd enjoy an opportunity to meet with other crafters to share information, projects, etc.
Have attended several meetup now and feeling a a kinship with the group.
