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

I learned to crochet in 8th grade Home Ec. My grandma's friend Bertha taught me and my sisters to knit, sitting on her porch swing -- with lots of cookies and lemonade on the side! -- and the wonderful smells of her flower garden in the air...

What's your favorite fiber?

merino wool

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

Lacking a set of instructions for anything else, I'd go for a nice, big blanket.

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 go through phases...right now I REALLY want to be doing some needlework, even though I have so little time for it.

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

No answer yet

Introduction

After several years of stockpiling yarn and not really doing anything with it, I've decided to get serious and USE IT UP!! I love to crochet, and can knit a scarf if I had to (I'd love to learn more), and I look forward to meeting some of you!
