Who taught you how to knit/crochet and how long have you been doing it?

I think I was self taught when I was a kid. But I just could make long straight things. I got some knitting books thinking that one day I would learn the code. Then I lived in Cyprus for a year and took a class at a wool shop. Fabulous!

What's your favorite fiber?

Maybe wool. Haven't really experimented.

If you were stranded on a deserted island with loads of cashmere and rosewood needles (or hooks), what would you make?

A nice little shack by the water. (I knitted once with wire!)

For you, does knitting/crocheting seem like it's going to be a passing fancy or a lifelong passion? (Hint: If you've been doing it for more than 3 years, I think we already have your answer.) :)

Definitely a passion. I had a book from Sasha Kagan that got lost. I wrote to her, and she sent me her copy! What a dear. I LOVE knitting (but don't do enough of it!)

In which part of Austin do you live? (N, NW, Central, S, SW, Lakeway, Cedar Park, etc.)

No answer yet

Introduction

I love to knit. I'd like to learn how to crochet too!

What Tamara is saying about this Meetup Group

Great bunch of ladies. Thank you so much for welcoming me. I should pick a pattern that I don't have to keep so careful track. Hopefully my son will be feeling better next week and I can come out again.
