How did you learn to knit? my mom taught me, I remember that, I hadn't even seen her knit until there was a certain hat I wanted very badly, but couldn't find in the stores, so she dug up a pattern and knit me a hat. I remember watching her and picking up her knitting when she set it down.

Favorite lace yarn? I have not knit enough lace to answer that question

variegated or solids for shawls? depends on the pattern, but a subtle varigation usually has the best of both worlds

Favorite lace color? oh, my. what a question. I have been on a natural color kick, but i also love greens and blues.

Lifelines? If so with what? oh that is a good idea. i should do that *blush*
