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

My mother taught me how to knit, and tried to teach me to crochet, but for some reason I just couldn't learn. When I was in my 20's a woman at one of my first jobs taught me how to crochet. I in turn, taught my sister, who taught my niece.

What's your favorite fiber?

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

a huge shawl that could also be used as a blanket at night when it gets cold.

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've been crocheting for many years, and while there are times I'm more interested in it than others, it definitely is not a passing fancy

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

Hi, I'm Carolyn. I like to crochet, and just learned to spin my own yarn, using a drop spindle. Since I'm still new at spinning, and not very good at it, I don't think I'll be using my own hand-spun yarn for anything in the near future!
