That is so funny! I think I must have been pretty lucky when I started to knit, about 30 years ago. My first project was an afghan that I just made up. It still exists. I read a lot and I was fortunate to have some friends who knit and who made it possible for me to try new things without worry. Of course, my standards are not all that high so a lot of stuff just gets done and out the door so I never see it again. Never did I imagine that I would one day be teaching people how to knit. Life is weird that way.

I also used to be a one-project-at-a-time knitter. I absolutely would not start another thing without first finishing the project I had going. There would be long gaps where I would not knit at all because of this policy - I wasn't willing to knit whatever the project was (for all kinds of reasons - lousy yarn, lousy color choice, obvious missize)and would not begin anything else. Now I have all kinds of projects going at once and as a result, very little output!! some things never change!!

Great history! Mine is so brief (I'm just now coming up on three months knitting) that I could tell it all here and still only take up 5 lines. :) One other thing: did you notice when you wrote this that your last line is actually, lyrically speaking, *in rhythm* with the song from Chicago?

Great post! I agree with you that the internet has helped many a knitter stay the course. I am isolated from passionate knitters and great yarn stores, but I have quick and easy access now. It is an addiction :)

You know, it's funny that some experienced knitters slag the novelty yarn scarf craze. I think it's brought some (like you!)to thier knitting destinies. Some are born to the fibre arts...others are called to it by a couple of balls of novelty yarn.
