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

My mom bought me a Fisher Price weaving loom when I was seven. I quickly tired of the loom so she taught me how to crochet. A friend's mom taught me more stitches when I was 11 and renewed my interest. I taught myself to knit a little over 2 years ago.

What's your favorite fiber?

I'm a fan of cashmere blends, especially when silk is involved.

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

A hammock.

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.) :)

I can't imagine a year without knitting...

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

No answer yet

Introduction

I'm an intermediate knitter crocheter. I've rediscovered that fiber arts help me relax and keep me productive when sitting in front of the TV. My dream is to make a whole sweater! So far I've completed socks, hats, scarves, and blankets.
