Keep up the good work Mason, we must increase the number of knitters until ultimately we rule the world and yarn and needles are considered a necessity. Onward to world domination!!!!!

KH is the best place I know for knitting answers. Good job.

Go Mason! I definitely nominate you as the official spokesman for KH "If I can Knit, so Can You!" should be your official motto.

Last night I turned my mom onto this site. I spent all day yesterday teaching her and my sister to knit (and purl, too!)

You guys have got to quit bumping this thread. Every time I see the thread title I say," That's what she said." Then I laugh until it hurts. (Yes, I am 13.)

Knitting's not hard, but I suck at teaching it. I homeschool my children and my 7 and 9 year old wanted to learn. While My 9 year old was still 8, I tried and tried to teach her. It was so frustrating for us both and she just couldn't get it. She kept begging me to teach her so I bought her a dvd and yarn kit at Target and figured she'd waste a few hours and I'd get some peace. lol....By golly she learned. So now, she knits. But she doesn't like patterns. Comes up with her own (simple) stuff. She makes clothes for her teddy bears and jewelry.

I've found that it is indeed a great icebreaker, and it has led to many good conversations, but I'm too ugly for them to have other motives.

Roxy,
I homeschool too and both of the youngers wanted to learn and it just isn't something I can do. My dd 11 went to knit camp this summer at our lys. No one else signed up so it was just she and her teacher for an hour a day. She did beautifully and now the seven year old wants to go as well. Just not sure as he has fine motor skill issues but maybe with someone other that me it will work.
