I've just found this thread so thought I'd say hi!
I'm Katie, and also a Brit (there seem to be a few of us here!). My mum taught me to knit when I was quite little and I made several wobbly scarves and misshapen toys in the school holidays
I'm now 25 and picked up the needles again last year. I would say I'm a bit of a naughty knitter that can't finish one project before starting two others and I get seduced by all the pretty yarns in the shop!
I've really enjoyed reading all about you & your projects (I spend far too long browsing Whatcha knittin!) on this forum - thanks! I really should do some work now before I get busted by my boss
