dh learned to knit
 
:woot: My dh was asking when I would teach him to knit as I was knitting at Bob Evans waiting for dinner to arrive last night, so I told him I would start when he got back home. I taught him the long tail cast on (I always do this co whenever possible) and go until he ran out of yarn. Then I pulled it out and made it shorter for him to co again then taught him the knit st. He made 3 rows and only added one extra st. He lost a st too and he was worried but hey, no problem, I fixed it. He did good!

Just wanted to share.

When I was organizing my stash last week to add it into Ravelry I found a ball of old scratchy grey yarn. I told my DH to toss it into the garbage as it is seriously crappy yarn. He looked at me in amazement and to my surprise he said "don't throw it out, you can use it to teach me how to knit." So, next weekend he is going to get his first lesson in knitting. I showed him Mason's picture and said "if this big burly truck driver can do it Hon, so you can!" (thanks Mason)...

Glad I could help. I've always been a bad influence, no sense stopping now. :mrgreen:

saw my friend at my mothers Concert tonight, she introduced me to her friend (gentleman friend, or co-worker, I have no idea?) and when I brought out my knitting, he told me he was learning to knit thelp his hands and wrists (he is a massage therapist) and I IMMEDIATLY offered to E-mail him some simple patterns (including the Odessa hat I M doing all the time now) he told me he was NO WHERE near ready to do that, as hewas only on his second lesson, and doing Dishcloths. by intermission, I told him I would help support his knitting, but I would try not to overwhelm him with my 'help'
I did not even push for his e-mail or number
I was very surprized by my friends lack of support to his being a knitter, I will have to speak to her about that. She started knitting for the same reason he did. Tsk Tsk tsk

I'm trying to get my fiance to knit but he says that if I go to a football game then he'll take up knitting lol. There's not a snowballs chance that you'll get me to go to a football game :roflhard: but I'm working on him anyway.It'll be nice if he learns to sit on a night watching t.v with the both of us knitting.
When I'm knitting at night he says that the click clack of my needles is soothing to him.He's even bought me the knit picks options set for my xmas. I'm not allowed them till xmas :roflhard:

Oh, I live for football and I'm depressed that the season is ending!

I would love for my dh to at least learn to knit; he would be able to fix my knitting boo-boos! He's much more observant than I am and has better right brain (or is it left) capability than I do.

It'll never happen, though. Nope, never.

I dont think my hubby would like to learn to knit although I haven'y actually asked him! I don't like the idea of sharing my stash ... My stash is a very personal thing between me and IT.
