I was 3 when I learned to crochet. I was about a year older when I learned to knit. maybe not even a year.
When I was 10 we were supposed to knit a pullover in school. Well I made the back with some beautiful 2 color pattern. Then I made the front with a different pattern (I was bored). Then I never made sleeves.
I bought new wool, started over. Short: Same story.
So I gave up on big projects and turned pounds and pounds of wool into doll cloth (no instructions). Then I knitted approx. 100 pairs of sox, got bored, made almost as many pairs of gloves.
A few years ago I started on baby outfits (with instructions and gorgeous patterns!). This spring finally, after knitting a whole box full of baby outfits in 3 month I finally lost my sleeve trauma and am knitting pullovers for myself. And yes, it is fun after loosing the trauma ;)
Now I am also woking on a whole parade of stuffed animals, that turn out sooo cute and make great gifts.
