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

My grandmother. She taught me the basics as a child. I stopped in high school, but then picked it up again after college. I've been casually knitting ever since then (going on

What's your favorite fiber?

Can't say I have one. I've typically worked in DK and baby weights as I have a tradition of making a baby bonnet, bootie and sweater set for my friends and family expecting. I've also made a few small toys too. My current projects will continue with DK (hats and socks) so yarns of that nature. Doubly so if washable. Though I've seen some fluffy stuff that I may try making a shawl with at some point.

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

Ah, that's calling to the shawl I mentioned above. I may give that a shot.

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.) :)

Oh, definitely a life long passion. I'm been working on several projects from an awesome book (Knits for Nerds, yes I'm a geeky girl :-). Fun socks are also a I'm a huge fan of. Right now, I have a huge stash of sock yarn just waiting to be turned into some awesome creations. So definitely life long passion, and I plan on continuing to knit for as long as I my fingers will let me.

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

Hi there. I've been knitting on my own for a long time now and would like to find other knitters to hang out with. Knitting by myself is fun, so I imagine knitting with others would be even better.
