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

I've been knitting for 50+ years. I'm working on moving through my stash. I like to do projects with emphasis on color and/or texture

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

I give away most of my projects because I get too hot wearing sweaters. Am currently looking for alternate types of project that would suit me: shawls, vests, coats or ponchos.

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

I got a Learn to Knit kit for Christmas when I was 8. My grandfather helped me figure out how to get started, then I started making Barbie clothes.

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

I want to share different techniques & determine if they help in the creation of my projects.


Longtime solo knitter who now enjoys the creative energy & "brainstorming" of knitting with friends.
