I learned the basic k&p of knitting. When I was little by a neighbor. Never grasped it. In my 20 I taught myself to crochet. 5 years later I stopped. 25 years later I got into crochet, knitting, loom knitting and hairpin lace. I love yarn, so addicted and to patterns. I've taught lots of friends. I make mostly to give as gifts or keep. I'm always in bed tv & kneedles.
