Well, I tried to teach myself many times over the years (I'm 37), but I finally "got it" about 3 summers ago. Funny, I only found this sight not quite 2 years ago, but I feel like it's been longer as it has really helped me to "become" a knitter. I searched "free knitting videos" and the rest is history!
I'm embarrassed to say that I haven't been to Winnepeg since I was 5 with my folks. So close, yet I haven't been. Probably should do that as I hear more and more of all the fun things to see and do. Better get in the waiting line for passports, if anything that would make going there much more "internationale", folks with passports always seemed sort of cool to me.
Well, carry on... look forward to eavesdropping on some conversations!
