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

2 years since Stitches West 2005. I'm still working on some socks I started then, but have finished 2 other pairs. I've taught 5 other people to knit. I learned to crochet when I was 8. Love to take apart old sweaters and re-knit to today's look

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

Socks, baby clothes, tank tops. I have tons of patterns I want to knit, but too many other things started. I also quilt and have several project started. I am working on finishing those before I start anything else.

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

Stitches West 2005 had free lessons. Mom, sis Michele and I took the lesson and I've been addicted ever since.

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

No answer yet


Hello All! I re-learned to knit 2 years ago at Stitches West. (I had knit and purl reversed, and would always end up with more stitches, so I gave up.) I've been crocheting since I was 8. I've knit 2 pairs of socks, with a third OTN, so far.
