Thats some interesting statistics. I'm in the teen knitters group, but I'm not in the USA so I guess I don't count, I'd love to see if the figures are similar for the UK.

Gosh, I've been knitting since I was 5, getting inked since I was 19. I've given up on my dream to be a military sniper though. The sniper rifle takes up too my room in my knitting bag

Oh no, I am left handed and a knitter. Better get that tattoo I've been yearning for and make it a hat trick. I have been wanting to find a good ol' NES system with Super Mario Bro.'s too.

I never knew that I was so .. typical!

Tattoos, yes. Video games, uh huh. Knitting, oh yes...

Sniper practice takes up way too much knitting and gaming time! I really don't have time for another hobby.

FO: Sprout Cardi

In progress on the wheel: fingering 2-ply for the cabled scarf
