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

2 years. I started when my son was born, so I'm still mostly a novice.

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

Hats, sweaters, stuffed toys.

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

My mom taught me how to cast on and knit and purl. She bought my my first pattern, yarn and needles. Youtube helped me finish that first sweater.

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

Techniques for changing colors/doing patterns on my work. I've always chosen either solid colors or stripes. I'm also interested in learning to felt wool roving into children's toys, but that may be a topic for another group. :)


30 something mom of a toddler and soon to be newborn. I love to make things myself, whether it's in the kitchen, garden, or craft room.
