I've been knitting for about six or seven years. I really like learning new techniques, but I'm fairly comfortable with lace, cables, and many other things. I love learning from other people.
I mostly knit socks and give them away as gifts. Of course, I keep trying to knit myself some but then my husband says that he wants another pair. :)
As a kid, I knew how to crochet but stopped. Several years ago, my friend was into crocheting. I went to a guild meeting with her and picked up the hook again. However, I felt unsatisfied and really wanted to learn how to knit so I taught myself.
I want to find the guts finish seaming up a sweater that I knit a few years back. I would also love to try spinning some new fibers on my wheel that I haven't yet spun.
I love knitting socks but would love to expand my skills. Of course, I can still keep a pair of socks going, too, right? ;) I'm a full-time student and am a lone knitter but really want to find a good community of people to join.
