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

I am an inbetweener.

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

I knit things I can wear. So far: hats, socks, scarves, shrugs, purse, and a skirt. Nothing with sleeves yet...though I am looking forward to it.

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

I've been trying to learn since my teens. I never got the "Zen" knitting patience. This is what I call it. I tried it again about five years ago, and voila! I could knit. I follow patterns, find instructions on Youtube and books. No formal lessons, no classes, no groups...nada...until now.

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

I think I'm ready to knit with colors, and maybe make something with a sleeve.

Introduction

Hi, I just figured out I could knit a few years ago. Mostly trial and error...self taught. I think I've reached a point where having a support group might be really useful, and fun! Glad to be here. I'm in the Cupertino/MV area.
