Thanks GG. She is having an "internet-less summer" so she is learning to knit. She can watch YouTube videos with our Wii but no browser access. I'm such a mean mom!! LOL

Her scarf is beautiful and she has every right to be proud of her accomplishment. Is she a new knitter also?

Mean moms rock! My DD told me how her DD looked at her and said, "You're not my friend!" and she responded, "That's right! I'm your mom." I told my kids if they didn't think I was the meanest mom in the world I had to try harder. Later on I got more than one thank you from them.

I tell mine the same thing.

She learned to cast on in Youth Group, then we moved and that was that. When I finally taught myself last month, she learned the knit stitch right along with me. She refuses to learn to purl.

I recently learned to knit backwards. I think a lot of my stockinette will be done with the purl rows knitted backwards. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIo-m6vfd-U

I'm going to watch that now, and hopefully she will too. I want to learn to knit continental also. It looks so much easier.

Continental is easier...for me. It might not be for you. People who started out knitting English style first seem to prefer it and find it easier. It's all subjective. Continental is supposedly faster than English but I've seen video of some really fast English style knitters. Knitting fast isn't my goal, knitting better is. Whichever way you are more comfortable with is the right was to knit.

Thanks Jan! I think she did a great job.

GG, I taught myself English style, but I'm left handed so if I can learn continental it would help.
