I am pretty happy about it. Just think, 2 weeks ago I could not even cast the stitches on the needle. We hare having Thanksgiving with my Mother and Daughter today. I will get to show off my new found skills. My mother wants me to teach her the long tail cast on. I might be able to teach my daughter how to do the ribbing but it will be a challenge, shes a righty. I am thinking of having her watch the videos just like I did.
This just goes to show, anyone can learn to knit, at any age. Learn from the mistakes and don't let them get you down. Keep plugging away until you get it mastered. It may not happen over night, but it will happen.
