Does anyone on here enjoy knitting?

Freyja9 Freyja9
So a couple weeks ago, I took an Introduction to Knitting class with a friend of mine and now I'm totally into it. I read this statistic claiming "The percentage of women under forty-five who knit or crochet has doubled since 1996". So, how about it, does anyone on here love to knit?

It helps pass the time when I can't exclusively focus on something - like being in a waiting room or on public transit when I have to be aware of what's going on. Several people get scarves from me that way (including a gentleman on the bus who asked for a scarf because my knitting reminded him of his mother).

I learned to knit many years ago when I was in girl scouts. I hated it then and said it was for old people. I picked it back up a few months ago and I love it now

Ayup! I taught myself how to knit almost 2 years ago. Picked it up real quickly...after whipping up a simple scarf to get the hang of the stitches, I knit a sweater with an intarsia skull on the front. I was pretty impressed with myself.

I do I do! a few hours a day, so a good deal of yards down. I just love creating something out of (essentially) nothing. And the colors!!!

I don't know how to knit and I'm not really interested in learning. Just not my thing.

I taught myself how to knit a couple years ago, but I stopped knitting because of a lack of time.

I love to knit, but I have not done it for a while. I have never committed myself to anything more than simple projects, but I want to knit a cardigan for myself eventually.

I tried to learn how to knit years ago, but just couldn't get it. I do, however, love to crochet.

That's awesome. I'm on my first scarf now, hope I get that good that fast!

I learned how to knit when I was about 8 (I'm 21 now), but didn't make anything other than small squares until I was 13. Now I love making scarves and hats, but hardly ever wear them. I think almost everyone in my family has received the gift of a knitted hat at some point - this year even my sister's boyfriend is getting one for Christmas!

I love knitting!!! I've hardly made anything for myself, I usually make things for everyone else! I've been knitting for over 15 years now.

I love to knit. I prefer a loom though so you can do different things, and make different sizes. It is very fun, I am glad you enjoy it. Oh and I almost forgot I crochet too, that is also fun.Great to learn new patterns and make new things....easier to fix mistakes too.

OH GOD!!! I hate yarn! I utterly freaking hate the feel of it. hate even looking at it. If I touch it my whole body locks up. For Xmas last year my wife bought me a PS3, she wrapped it in a scarf, so when I reched inside to pull it out, I had a hand full of that shit! I don't know why, but I hate it with a passion!

I haven't learned yet but would like to. I've made a few hats using my kids' Knifty Knitters. They are very easy to use and the hats turned out well.

No interest. Esp when clothing is so cheap.

I learned to knit as a child, then stopped until I was in college. I knit all the time now. I love it.

Yesss. I taught myself to knit last year. I've actually not knitted in a while simply because I recently decided to teach myself to quilt, so I've been fiddling about with that. I tend to go through spurts of stuff. For a while, I'll sew, then I'll cross-stitch for a while, then I'll knit for a while, etc. I just absorb myself into one thing so much that I get burnt out and find something else to do for a while until I get burnt out on whatever the other thing is.

Love knitting, but I can't buy wool where I live, so it takes some time to get more sent up.

I've recently gotten back into knitting. I'm making a gigantic Dr Who scarf for a friend of mine right now, and it's so much fun.
