Live mid state West Virginia, USA
Do you knit or crochet: I do both, although recently most of my projects have been knitted.
How long: I think I started crocheting around 69, the only reason for that is the local Five and Dime store had a Lilly thread book with left-handed instruction. Really was wanting to learn to knit, finally got the chance to teach myself in 73, was at home with newborn and the pattern book I was crocheting from had a really nice knitted shawl pattern that I just had to make. Of course this was when we only had one car , so went to the barn found some big spike nails, brought them in, sanded down the sharp ridges on the sides, hunted up the learning to knit left handed booklet and got started. Later that evening Hubby laughed and laughed when he got home from work, until I told him we had to go buy some real needles and yarn
(Still have those spikes in the bottom of needle/hook chest.)
Like to make about anything as long as there are differnet stitches and patterns, after all doilies were what I learned on
Like most have several pojects working at one time, keeps me from getting bored.
Other Hobbies: Reading, Club Pogo, latch hook rugs, quilting, gardening, camping, fishing. Just about everything at one time or another.
