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

Since 2005, so about 7 years now.

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

I like projects that let me try out new techniques & ideas so I don't get bored. I do about half-and-half knitting for gifts and knitting for me.

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

My friend taught me in high school so I could knit a Harry Potter scarf. (Since then I've knit 7 HP scarves for myself and for friends.)

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

I want to try planned pooling, but I'm scared I might be too much of a control freak for that... I'm also hoping to get over my fear of sweaters soon.

Introduction

I'm in my early 20's and some of my friends call me a grandma when I'm knitting -- but since I've taught knitting at summer camp for three years, most of the other knitters I know are younger than me! Thought it might be nice to change that.
