I have only returned to knitting this year after years of ignoring my needles. (Full time work, kids, minding grandkids etc) Rarely make anything for myself as I find our climate too warm to wear handknits. I also like to crochet, but if I had to pick - knitting definitely wins hands down. Love looking at the beautiful projects that the ladies on this site make, it inspires me to tackle lots of different projects. I try to buy my yarn here in Aus, but I do find our choice can be limited compared to UK yarns. I was taught to knit back in the 50's by my Mum, however my Dad was also a knitter having been taught whilst serving in the British Royal Navy. I am also inspired by my sister in law in UK, who is just an amazing knitter and churns out incredible projects.
