Gosh that's a long questionnaire. The answer to any new techniques I would like to learn is continental knitting. As my wrists are getting less supple it looks so much easier on them than throwing the yarn around the needle as I do.
I do have an Amazon wish list and I die to get my hands on any books or patterns with crochet in them. I am an addict!
The only thing I have ever collected apart from yarn and patterns has been a succession of useless, heartless men but I gave that hobby up a long time ago! I just stay with the knit and crochet now.

I'm absolutely with you, Amber, on so many of your answers. I suspect this just might be an 'age issue'!
