I learned at school when I was 7. It was cool to knit and my sister taught me crochet later. I've been handling yarn ever since.
Pima cotton makes me happy. It feels good in my hands.
I'd start with a blanket with a tight stitch, then a lacy wrap skirt and shirt. I wouldn't worry about lacy patterns since no one would be around to see me :)
Definitely not a passing fancy.
I've had hooks or needles in my hands since I was 7. Yarn makes me happy and is soothing.
