My nanny taught me to do simple single crochet in the round when I was very young. Self-taught real crochet & knitting in 2009.
Call me a yarn snob, but I gravitate to merino-alpaca-cashmere-silk blends of most varieties. Once you knit up a luxury yarn - oh heaven! Being a native Texan, though, I have to admit I love quality cottons like pima cotton, bamboo, linen, etc for their breathability factor in our hot & humid climate. The latter, is also my preference for baby knits - at least for all my fellow Texan friends & family.
Having lived in Hawaii for few months, I would most certainly knit a wrap big enough to function as a multi-use sarong, as a pillow to rest my head during naps in the heat of the day, as a shawl for the cooler evenings, as a blanket for staying warm at night, and yes to stay warm during the chilly days of the rainy (& windy) season - tropical "winter" so to speak.
I always had a strong desire to knit because I am fascinated by innate qualities the knitted fabric and it's endless possibilities. So after a previous failed attempt to learn, I am happily a self-confessed, incurable yarnivore!

Avid knitter & crocheter moving to San Marcos but working in north Austin. Looking for like-minded yarnivores to meet occasionally while stealing time for one of my favorite crafts.
