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

Old hand but slow knitter - enjoy the commraderie

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

Usually give away. When I am knitting something people will start conversations with me. When I tell them I knit my husband's sox they are amazed. Then I ask them if they have ever owned a pair of hand knitted sox and usually they say no! We need to learn how to do things for ourselves and stop consuming poorly made products.............. firm believer we can bring back cottage industries :-) Imagine if we were more self sufficient, and productive. How appreciative others would be of our creations and the energy to make them. I just enjoy knitting rather than watching TV

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

My wonderful Grand Mother

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

Felting - perhaps a bag for my knitting - looks like fun.

Introduction

I have now finally finished relocating from NC to San Jose - Phew! Don't miss "home" so much anymore because I am making many new friends ..... enjoy knitting small projects like sox, mittens, hats and scarves to give away.......... as gifts.
