My husband and I have started a new rule for ourselves - we spend every Wednesday evening doing something together instead of doing our “usual” activities. Well, he said that he wanted to understand the basics about knitting!
I think he just wanted to watch me knit and do different techniques, but I put a pair of needles in his hands and off we went. He learned four different ways to cast on, how to knit, and by the end of the evening he made a small swatch in garter stitch.
Once he made those accomplishments, I showed him purling and then explained stockinette, ribbing and moss stitch.
He doesn’t have intentions to knit, as he just wanted to understand it. We had a great time! I can’t wait to decide what we’re going to do next week!
