I learned to knit from my mum at about age 4 or 5 and don't even remember when I learned to crochet. I then took up sewing in my 20s when I spent some years in Japan where there were plenty of lovely fabrics but no ready to wear I could fit into... Together with gardening these crafts serve was my creative outlet and I've enjoyed them for many years. And since it's fun to learn something new I recently also took up spinning.
