yes you can do it!!!
you can check out my website under "classes" to see what I am TRYING to do!!
When I first wanted to do this, I was nervous about being "so new". A veteran knitter said, that new knitters make the best teachers because we remember what it is like to be so new!!!!
I do want to say tho...when people say "i wish I could knit", and I say, I can teach you...that's about as far as it goes...lol....
