How long have you been knitting? New enthusiast or old hand? What are your favorite knitting techniques these days?

I've been knitting now for about 35 years; at the moment, I am trying to finish up all the old projects I've got on the needles before I start any new! My most recent projects include a shark hat for my daughter, a horse hat for an infant, and a sweater for my daughter.....

What kind of objects do you like to knit? Do you keep 'em, sell 'em or give 'em away?

I like to knit smaller things (hats, scarves, stuffed animals, etc) that I can finish quickly on the one hand, but as for stitches, I love knitting lace.

How did you start knitting? Who taught you and how did you catch the bug?

I started crocheting when I was four, my grandmother taught me. I became interested in knitting in high school, my first project was a mitten that turned out to be about a foot long....

What is one topic you want to learn more about in knitting or fiber arts, and why?

I actually have a rigid heddle loom I recently bought, and I want to get more into weaving.

Introduction

Hi, I've recently relocated from Maryland, where I was heavily involved in a fiber arts guild. I'm looking to connect with other knitters!
