LOL! Hildie, that's awesome, I hope you teach him!
I taught Sheldon to knit Continental, by using my left hand and his right hand to knit together. It was cool, at first I did much of the motion with my left hand, and after several stitches I finally just kept my hand still so Sheldon was doing all the maneuvering himself. It was fun to knit together so literally! :D He picked it right up, and when I showed him how to hold the yarn in his left hand, he knew just what to do! But he just wanted to see if he could do it, and hasn't touched the needles since.
It's funny, a part of me was excited, and a part of me was like: gosh, I hope he doesn't get so into it that he becomes a better knitter than me!
