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

My great-grandmother taught me the basic pearl stitch when I was a child, but I didn't stick with it and it wasn't until my mother started crocheting and then taught me that I really became interested in this craft. I've now been crocheting since October 2012.

What's your favorite fiber?

I feel that I'm still too new to yarn to have a favorite, but I have been working with synthetic blends and wool for the most part.

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

A giant blanket that said, "HELP!".

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'm hoping it is lifelong passion. There seems to be no greater an activity to wind down to at the end of the day than by working on a project or learning new patterns! I still have a lot to learn, though.

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

No answer yet


I'm new to Austin and still fairly new to crochet. I don't knit much, but have completed a few crochet projects and would like to get to know people who also enjoy this craft. I hope to improve my work through the help of others.
