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

I've been knitting since my junior year of college when I realized I couldn't afford the nice knitted accessories I wanted and well... upstate New York is quite cold. I don't really have a favorite technique but I love trying new challenging patterns.

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

I keep some of my stuff and give a lot away as gifts (especially at baby showers and christmas time). I can never bring myself to sell them as so much work goes into that no one could ever pay me enough... there's a lot of love in my work that money can't buy!

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

I taught myself (with some help from a friend) to knit after seeing a pair of gloves I absolutely had to have but could never afford.

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

I learn new things as I needed so there's not a particular topic I can think of.

Introduction

I have loved to knit since I learned (again) in college! I'm a computer programmer by day in Silicon Valley and also write science fiction and blog for saratoga.com. Feel free to send requests for blog posts!
