I have always been interested in crafting but it was usually sewing. I completed my first baby cardigan for my Knitting badge in the Girl Guides. It was really fine yarn and it took me ages to do! I started again in my 20's, then made nothing until recently. My mum is an avid knitter and I began knitting again once I had retired. I love trying out new patterns and advancing my skills. I like vintage style patterns and designs although I seem to be making lots of toys at the moment!
