Learned to knit as an adolescent and knitted into my early 20's. Took a long hiatus to pursue an interest in quilting and picked my knitting back up in 2006, spurred on by an interest in learning to knit socks.
I've knit mostly socks, scarves and shawls of which the vast majority of them have been given as gifts
My sister initially showed me to do basic knit and purl when I was about 8. Most of what I've learned subsequent has been from books and all the remarkable tools available these days on the internet.
I would love to have the confidence to pursue more garment knitting. I have made a couple of sweaters but they have been more amorphous in nature as opposed to having real shape.
I enjoy all kinds of fiber crafts; i.e. knitting, crochet, quilting, machine embroidery and, as of late, weaving.
A great way to meet people with like interests and we had some great show and tell. Someone of all skill levels and abilities so your questions can easily get answered.
