I've been knitting since childhood-on and off-and have learned many techniques on my own. A few years ago I took my first formal knitting class and have taken several since. I really enjoy how the classes have built on skills I already had and introduced me to new techniques.
Traveling, skiing, walking and hiking, reading, cooking.
Being able to meet people in my neighborhood with similar interests. Sharing project ideas and tips.
I typically have multiple projects in the works. Maybe I'll be making an afghan or a sweater, but stop to make some easy gifts like hats or slippers. I love the process more than the finishing, although I'm working on more of a balance between process and product.
Finishing the last of my Xmas gifts-cowls, hats and fingerless gloves. Then I want to start knitting socks - I've heard they're addictive!
I'm looking forward to continuing to learn new skills and meet more people who share my interests.
