There is a question to answer each day of the week about your passion for fiber from how did you start to the yarn you yearn to own. Visit Eskimimi Knits for all the info and here is the list of questions.
Today's question is: How and when did you begin knitting/crocheting?
My mom and a learn to knit book taught me how to knit. I can't remember exactly how old I was, but I know by the time I was about ten I had experimented with knitting. An abysmal failure to be able to knit mitts put my knitting career on hold. I turned to crochet which for some reason I picked up much quicker from my mom.
Eventually, I took on knitting again and was knee deep into it by my early teens. I remember one early project was a knit garter stitch apron and hot mat for my mom on Mother's Day.
Some thirty odd years later I'm still both knitting and crocheting. I have taken the the odd hiatus only to return more passionate than ever for these fiber arts.
Happy blogging about your passion!
