Plot Your Course!
A friend taught me how to knit one wintery afternoon, and since then I've become an addict.
I'm not that fast or well-versed in the various techniques, I really just enjoy knitting as a way of relaxing.
Since then, I've also started dabbling in crochet and other crafts, such as calligraphy/illumination, embroidery, painting, beading... And that's all in addition to my insane garb-making habit (I think at last count I'd made nearly 100 items either for myself or others) :)
And I *really* miss having bus-commute time, because that's when I got tons of guilt-free knitting time...
