I've been knitting since college. These days I'm doing a lot of lace knitting and socks - with some recent forays into baby and toddler knitting!
I knit a lot of socks, some lightweight tops and shrugs, a few baby items (jackets, hats, stuffed animals). Even a few scarves and shawls. I keep a lot of my things, but I give some of them away.
A friend taught me how to knit when I was in college. A year or two later, I moved to California and didn't knit for a couple of years - until I discovered an amazing yarn shop on a visit to Nova Scotia, and couldn't resist the lace scarf kit they had on display. I had to re-teach myself how to knit, but I've never looked back.
I've never done any colorwork. Perhaps I'll give it a try sometime - but it seems there's always another lace pattern that jumps to the top of the queue. Dyeing yarn also sounds like fun!
I'm a full-time mom who loves to knit - when I have time.
