I learned to crochet in high school and joined a group of friends in college who knit during midterms and finals...peer pressure is amazing.
I taught myself, mostly. Which explains why I knit a somewhat modified Continental style & confused any yarn store owner who tried to help me early on.
I'd say roughly five years.
Some might argue that knitting and drinking don't go together. I'd argue they don't have any sense of adventure.
