Who taught you how to knit/crochet and how long have you been doing it?

I taught myself to knit about ten years ago.

What's your favorite fiber?

I like natural fibers and try to avoid synthetics. I'm partial to wool, but all fibers have their place.

If you were stranded on a deserted island with loads of cashmere and rosewood needles (or hooks), what would you make?

Do I also get an instruction book? If so, maybe a sweater or dress. If not, I'd probably just make a bunch of scarfs since those are the only things I can do without direction.

For you, does knitting/crocheting seem like it's going to be a passing fancy or a lifelong passion? (Hint: If you've been doing it for more than 3 years, I think we already have your answer.) :)

I go through phases where knit avidly, and then I put the needles down for a while. But I think I'll always come back to it. :)

In which part of Austin do you live? (N, NW, Central, S, SW, Lakeway, Cedar Park, etc.)

Introduction

Hello! I just moved to Austin from Seattle in August. I've been knitting off and on for about 10 years and am looking forward to meeting other knitters!
