I've been reading some of the posts here, and this seems like a great site, so I hope to have fun knitting with you all.
About me: Have been crocheting and doing knitting looms since I was about 5 or 6. Taught myself to knit proper after college. Love dinosaurs, science fiction and disaster movies.
Current projects: a poncho for my wife, baby booties for the little one on the way, (just finished the kid's first crocheted blanket), a ribbed sweater with snakey cables up the arms
About me and knitting: I have never actually followed a knitting pattern, except for the one I made up myself. I love crocheting because you just stick the hook wherever you please and make some more loops. Plus it's really fast. However, I've been getting much better at knitting, and I've been working on cables and lace patterns, so it's not so boring anymore.
Biggest project ever made in a public place: I crocheted a rug out of old t-shirts on the subway in NYC.
I'll post some pictures of projects later.
