I learned to knit at about 8 years of age, and to crochet at about 16. I didn't do either for over twenty years, and picked it up again about three years ago. I'm amazed at the wonderful yarns and the cool implements available now that we didn't even dream of in the 60s and 70s. And of course, YouTube videos...
I knit all kinds of things, but like to have a portable project (like socks or hats) in my bag at all times to work on the fly. Lately I have become enamored of lace shawls and knitted toys, but they require more concentration.
My aunt taught me when I was in third grade. She had the patience of a saint. :)
I'm pretty comfortable with knitting and can pick up most techniques if I can see it demonstrated on a YouTube video. Right now I am trying to learn tatting, and it is hard to find other tatters.
