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

I've been knitting about 4-years. Techniques??? Hey, I feel pretty good to be knitting with 5 needles making leg warmers. favorites will come as I gain confidence in the craft.

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

Scarves, afghans, easy stuff right now. I mostly give them away.

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

Mostly self taught but had some old hands along the way to help me along. Caught the bug about 4 years ago when a group of ladies came to the facility every week to do hand work (knitting, crocheting, cross stitch, etc.). Looked like I could do that so I bought a book and some needles then started asking questions of the old hands around the table. Lots of times I would just watch. I am a very quick learner

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

How to put the sleeve on my sweater I'm crocheting, the pattern doesn't make sense. Otherwise, topics will come later as I grow more confident in the craft.

Introduction

I like all kinds of crafts but find myself drawn to knitting. I enjoy working in my gardens, cooking and quilting; walks on the beach with my hubby. I've been in the Bay Area 13-years and am looking for a stable group where I can make friends.
