Knitting in Passing
Last Thursday I taught my friend Erika to knit! She did a great job learning the Long Tail Cast on and the knit stitch! Can't wait to work with her some more.
On Friday night, my dear friend Megg asked to knit on my sock and began talking about wanting to have her own project. On Saturday, we went to the local yarn shop and got her set up!
Megg learned to Cast On and how to purl and practiced those. I knit most of the cuff. She sent me a photo this week of her progress!
While I was at their house on Saturday, my nephew Oisin asked to work on his Star Wars Crochet Kit!
We started by teaching him how to wind yarn and then did a little crochet. Oisin knows how to knit but wanted to learn to purl, so we did that too! It was a great afternoon!
I'll be attending Stitches West– February 18-21 in Santa Clara, CA
