I've been knitting for about 5 years. Self taught by books and internet. I've mostly just made scarves and slippers. This year, I've been attending social meetings where other knitters bring their yarn and it has inspired me to try some new things. I made dish clothes for gifts and because my boyfriend uses the dishcloth as a potholder, I taught myself how to double knit so the potholders would be thicker. I've been having lots of fun designing potholders on grid (in excel) and can't wait to knit my next one which is a dahlia.
I also want to create a soft remote storage basket for the couch and designs are under way. If anyone has thought or helps on this please drop me a note.
I've also crocheted since I was a kid, plus tons of other non-yarn arts & crafts
