When I was about 17 I bought a book to teach me how to crochet granny squares. It took a long time but I finally got it. Many years later I bought a book and needles to learn to knit. Again, it took a while but I finally got it. It wasn't until I found this site that I learned to do anything with thoses knits and purls. It would be nice to have someone nearby who knits.
