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

I've been knitting since the early 70's.

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

I love to knit sweaters. I give some away and keep some. Last year for the first time, I started knitting scarves to give away. They are quick and give me more time to knit sweaters for me!

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

In the early 70's I lived in Warren, Vermont with a bunch of people. Two of the girls where knitting every night. They taught me to knit a sweater. It was in wool and had deers running around my chest. Still have that sweater. It's the only knitted object I keep from the early days.

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

I have some beautiful purple yarn I picked up from Greenplanet for a triangle shawl. I need to figure out the pattern. I'm a bit perplexed by it but I'm sure I will figure it out. There are some very experience knitters at meet up that I know would be happy to help.

Introduction

I love to knit, watch SciFi and Vampire movies.

What Arlene is saying about this Meetup Group

Great place to meet other knitters, see newly knitted items and get knitting help.
