I saw a WiP at a friend's house and commented on the interesting variegated stripes. A few weeks later, she gave me a booklet, needles, and a skein of variegated yarn and I was on my way!
I've been knitting about 9 years but had a few gaps in there as I got involved in other things (swing dancing, cycling, scrapbooking, gardening, cooking, etc), but I always came back to it.
Friends, food, wine and knitting - I can't think of a better day.
