Last year, November 24, 2007 he invited me to teach him to knit as a 40th wedding anniversary gift. He knew I would enjoy teaching him and he wanted to understand my knitting babble better. So I taught him the basics and then told him he was ready for a project. He wanted to do a hat and hats are all he has made since. He actually only knit last year from our anniversary until it got warm enough for his outdoor projects. He made over 20 hats during that time. Then he didn't pick up the needles until a month or so ago and he has made several more. He made up every one of his patterns himself. Not one to follow directions.
Writing out what you do is a bit harder, but I have helped him do it on at least one hat. We ought to do it to some more. Folks seem to like his creations. He has a lot of talent and is innovative all right. He figured out a 2 color cast on that I didn't teach him and I don't know it if it "normal" or not. LOL
If anyone would like to see all the hats he has made from the beginning you can go here to my photobucket site to the album of his stuff. Of course everything is in reverse order. Page 4 has his first stuff. Actually hat #1 is the next to last thing on page 4 and the second one is last. It's quite a history of his experiments.
