I'm a knitter!!! I was 8 years old when I asked my grandmother at a birthday party if she could teach me knitting sometime and she did it immediately. And after years of frustration I gave it up, I even was about to gift all my wool and needles, fortunately my room mate didn't want the needles. Then when I was 24/25 the knitting passion hit me again. Since then I didn't put my needles down any more.
