I am just SO terribly excited, I had to share. I had my tea and knitting date with my very dear friend last night to teach her how to knit. She's quite a crafty chick, but never with yarn, and I just babbled and babbled to her about knitting and showed her pictures of the most beautiful fibers I could find and I knew if I kept at it, she would get the bug. Mission accomplished! (Do I get a free toaster or something?) Anyway, here is a picture of her first thing, which we will call.... a potholder. I did the first 2 or 3 rows and she took over. (she was already successfully knitting a different piece, but preferred this yarn and wanted to try my Brittany needles, but she's an ace at casting on already.)
Is she awesome, or what?! I know my first project didn't look like that!!! Next lesson is purling! I think teaching knitting is almost even better than knitting itself! Had to share, thanks for looking.
