My mother taught me as a kid, but I forgot for many years. I retaught myself back in the summer of 2003 and made my mother an afghan in one month. It helped that as a teacher, I have summers off. :) Otherwise, my projects tend to take years.
Still just using acrylic, although I'm trying new yarns for hats.
I taught myself how to crochet a few years ago. It's not always easy to make crocheting a priority with two little ones running around, so my periods of activity come and go...
I thought it would be nice to meet others who like to crochet and might be willing to help me learn how to knit.
