How old are you?
I've mentioned to my daughter a few times that there are so many young knitters now even though it's still often perceived as an "old lady" hobby. I feel like there are more young knitters that older knitters here in the forum so I thought I'd do a fun poll because I'm sure I'm not the only curious member. You may elaborate if your so inclined or just vote in the poll if you're shy. ;-)

I'll start... I'm 54 now and started knitting when I was 52.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

I'm 56 but I started knitting at 14. I didn't knit for many years though, and took it up again about 2 years ago.

i'm 35, although i usually only claim 29. *tee hee* i started knitting as a youngster in girl scouts, laid it down for many years, then picked it up again and haven't looked back.

as far as younger knitters, i just taught my 2 nieces to knit the other day. one is 9 and the other is 14. the 9 year old is voracious!
