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

I lived in Germany as a child and was taught "Handarbeit" by Frau Seidel. I'm 52 and still remember her! Had my hand slapped a few times! Anyway, I prefer knitting and have been playing with it off and on over the years.

What's your favorite fiber?

I really don't have a favorite, but come on, who wouldn't love to knit with cashmere!

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

A poncho!

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.) :)

Lifelong passion!

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

No answer yet

Introduction

Hi y'all, I'm a born and bred Texan, been keeping it weird in South Austin since '99.

What Melissa is saying about this Meetup Group

This was my first get together so I only spoke to a couple of people but I felt very comfortable and relaxed. I'm excited to be apart of this group! Already looking forward to the next meeting!
