1)I recently tried knitting a Japanese yarn called Noro. They make a very pretty silk, mohair, lamb's wool mix with varigated colors. I used the worsted weight. I am kind of a newb, so I hope that was a decent description
2) I have been churning out a lot of hats on circular needles. They are quick and when I am stuck on my large project, I can knit / practice on various different patterns until I am no longer stuck. I have given a hat to just about everyone I know.
3) I don't follow any one designer as of now. I really like the book I just bought, Easy Kids Knits,
by Claire Montgomerie and another book which I don't know offhand. I think it is called Simple Gifts
, or something like that.
4) I am also not a huge fan of the magazines. I have looked at a few, but I have yet to knit an adult size garment (aside from a hat). Kids stuff is a lot more accessible to me right now.
5) No. I am not sure what Ravelry is. I know a lot of you guys link to your Ravelry account, but esp if there is a waitlist I am probably not patient enough to join.
6) I first learned when I was 7 or 8, but have just recently picked it back up. I would say 2 years consecutively.
7) No! I was also taught to crochet when I learned to knit, and I never took to it. I am going to have to learn, I think, since there are a lot of pretty things to do finishing-wise with crochet.
9) Whenever my toddler is asleep, or SO is home to play with him and give me some time to myself! I meet a few girls for knitting 2-3 times a month.
10) I rely on my knitting group, primarily, and KH forms and videos! I have borrowed a friend's book now and then. My book mentioned above also has a helpful section in the beginning about basic techniques and reading patterns, so I have referred to that while working my sweater vest.
