When did you start knitting/crocheting?


What is your favorite thing to knit/crochet ?


What's your favorite Fiber?

What? I have to pick just one? Merino, tencel, silk, camel, yak... pretty much anything but acrylic.

Where do you love to knit/crochet most?

Poolside, or in my favorite chair in my room.

What is your favorite thing to do, other than knit/crochet ?

Race walk. Because being a fiber fanatic isn't eclectic enough, I also compete in one of the fringe sports, race walking. But I've got lots of bling on my wall that says I'm doing it right, so there ya go. Oh, I also like to target shoot with my recurve bow, but a shoulder injury has kept me from that recently.


I'm Lauri (aka Gecko Yarns), and I actually live in AZ, but am from OC and visit there often as the rest of my family still lives there. I love all things yarn: knitting, crochet, spinning, and as of late, weaving.

What Lauri is saying about this Meetup Group

Great time as per usual when I'm in town... I'm actually being recognized now, and recognize regulars too, which is great since I only get to attend a few times per year! Thank you guys for always making me feel welcome and part of the "family"!
