When did you learn to knit? Who taught you?> I learned back in 1995 the first time and relearned (when I became addicted!) in 2004. Both times I learned at the same shop in Virginia Beach, The Knitting Corner from the owner, Carol, who has since passed.
What was your very first completed object? Your most recent? My first was my daughter's baby blanket and my most recent was a hat from Diakeito yarn- simple rolled brim.
What was the very first thing you sent to the frog pond? (pulled out and started over)Not sure, can't remember. Your most recent? That would be the hat, I pulled it 3 times to get the length right. I self designed it from the Handy Book of Knitting Patterns and kept getting the length too short before the decreases.
What is currently on the needles for you?A pair of socks and a baby blanket
What types of needles do you enjoy working with? What have you tried and hated?

If you could go anywhere in the world for one day and spend the day any way you wanted, where would you go and what would you do? I would get all my girlfriends together- all my Navy, church, college, kitting and other buddies, and spend the day at a spa rented out just for us!
Do you have any allergies? (Yarns, foods, etc. that might impact what your pal can send) Other than no nuts in my chocolate (a preference not an allergy) I have no allergies.
