Sharing Your Loves

My youngest son had his birthday this week and he and his girlfriend came round, She is a lovely girl and so busy, being a new teacher and all that, But they both came around that day and she asked me to keep an eye out for some red,green,white yarn/wool for the kids to make some Christmas tassels. Well, i just so happened to have some of these colours and i gave them to her.

I don't know quite what happened next but the conversation came to knitting, She said that she would love to be able to knit, her mum tried to teach her but she could not do it. I said i would teach her.
Well i gave her some needles and together we knitted a piece. She is a natural! it took her no time at all, and she made herself a strip of knitting (garter stitch) and when she cast it off she was so very happy. and when i proceeded to put it around her wrist, well she just cried! She is going to add some funky buttons to it.

She went home armed with 3 sets of knitting needles, all different sizes and lengths, some yarn and crochet hooks that she will learn to use the next time we see each other.

Well my son yesterday told me that she loves to knit now, and is happily knitting in her spare time, How cool is that! She is finding it a very relaxing thing to do. The next time we meet i will teach her how to purl, increase, decrease and other types of casting on.

She also wants to learn how to crochet. How much fun is this!!!
