Teaching an old dog new tricks. I can’t believe I’m in my 50’s and just now learning to knit. I started knitting about 5 weeks ago. I am teaching myself from the ‘Stitch N Bitch’ book, but I still need someone around to help. Only problem is there is no one around who can. While searching online for more information I came across this website and the online videos have been wonderful in helping me! I love the way Amy demonstrates knitting slowly enough so I can see it and she repeats enough times so I can actually catch on. I’m slowly becoming addicted to this and I’m determined to conquer all the mistakes I make. Learning to correct mistakes is very hard for me. I feel so clumsy. My first scarf is so ugly I won’t even show anyone. I’m working on another one now and it looks a little better (not much) but I’m sure in time my scarves won’t look so “moth eaten”. I LOVE THIS SITE!
