OMG - I want to learn how to knit so badly!! If only I had another 3 hours in every day... A whole bunch of people have been trying to motivate me, tempting me with books and gorgeous photos. And have you ever notice that knitting mags are the most appealing?
Disclosure: My father did teach me to knit - what is it with the men in my life learning crafts so they can teach me?? - when I was a child. As I'm left-handed, he had to figure out how to sew, then how to turn it around, then how to make it knowable to me.
And I promptly gave it up when it became apparent to me that I was going to learn how to do some math and read a pattern. Children are such ingrates. But don't worry Dad! Next time I'll stick with it!
