Knitting! I 1st learned to knit back in 1985 from my German roommate who never used a pattern, but designed everything herself. Unfortunately, I wasn't ready for her awesomeness and the only thing I retained was how to hold the needles. I came back to the craft on my own about 10 yrs ago and started figuring things out with the help of the internet and cool knitting groups. Now I'm obsessed like everyone else!
