Good response, Clutter! I especially agree with what you said to ABCmom. They should have that info on classes.
By that definition I'd be advanced. I know I can do anything and patterns don't scare or confuse me. I just ask or look up what I don't know. I choose not to do some things because I tend to prefer mindless right now. I'd never describe myself as advanced though. Why? Because I've only been knitting since 2005.
