Why did you first get interested in knitting?

I got started in crochet because I knew several knitters, but I thought the crochet patterns looked like more fun. I got started in knitting because hookers don't get enough love from pattern-makers, and the knitters had all the nifty intricate lace patterns.

Who taught you to knit?

Completely self-taught, with the help of the Internets and YouTube.

How long have you been knitting?

Crocheting, about 4 1/2 years, knitting about 2-ish years.


Self-taught in crochet and becoming self-taught in knit (yes, I'm trying to become bi-stringual ^.~ ). Full-time work and part-time school doesn't leave me with as much time as I'd like for fiber arts, but I most enjoy crafting with others.
