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

Knitting the knit stitch since I was a kid but just learned how to purl in 2009! Since learning a 2nd stitch, I'm addicted!

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

Hats, scarves, shawls, bags and headbands. Most have been given away. I've knitted 1 bolero but haven't started with other items yet. Socks and mitts/gloves are next on my list!

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

My late paternal grandmother taught me how to knit. I could only do 1 stitch - knit. Then in 2009, a friend of mine wanted to learn how to knit. At the time, Yarndogs would do a private class for 2+ people but she couldn't find anyone to attend class with her. I felt bad that she wasn't able to learn how to knit so I paid to go with her. Of course, the instructor could tell right away that I had no trouble knitting, so she asked me if I knew how to purl. I was like, "What's purl?" And that was the beginning to the ever growing stash of yarns, needles and UFOs!

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

No answer yet

Introduction

I'm a Kansas transplant with a love for creating colorful, knitted items.

What Amy is saying about this Meetup Group

Very friendly group! I'm so glad I can join them once a month to hang out (and, of course, do some knitting)!
