  • Who taught you to knit? I did.
  • Do you remember the first thing you made? A mass of garter stitch. Then a sweater out of Vogue.
  • Do you knit more for yourself or others? For myself. Other people are not grateful enough and that seems like an unfair burden.
  • Is there a price too large to spend on a knitting project? Well, yes, but I do anyway.
  • Do you knit patterns more than once? Is this presuming there are FO's in my life?

  • What is your opinion of those ginormous needle sizes? Nice on your hands?
  • Do you understand the Zimmerman EPS system? Yes.
  • Do you knit in public? Yes.
  • Have you been part of a KAL? Not for long.
  • Have you ever knit a “mystery” item? Yes, but it didn't start out that way.
  • Do you knit English or Continental? continental.

Don't make me come back here after April and tag you. (Presuming I live through it) Tag!
